He struck out seven with only one walk. "He was...

After April’s Debacle, There is Hope for Brewers

Photo credit Copyright Robby White, Madison, WI As the Brewers broke spring camp in early April, there was, as with all other MLB teams optimism for a great season. For the Brewers, that optimism seemed to wane as the Crew lost on Opening Day 10-0 to the Rockies and went into freefall mode. The powerful on paper lineup of the Brewers couldn’t hit their way out of a wet paper bag...

Tigers' Sanchez stingy at home against NL opponents

Anibal Sanchez has been tough to score on in winning three interleague home starts with the Detroit Tigers. His opponent is a pitcher who has a 3-12 record as a starter, with no wins in his last six. Sanchez figures to have an edge over the Milwaukee Brewers' Jimmy Nelson in Tuesday night's matchup (6 p.m. pregame, 7:08 first pitch on FOX Sports Detroit). Detroit (23-16) seeks to...

Daily DraftKings Picks: Friday, May 15

Sorry for yesterday’s unpublicized absence — I was pretty under the weather. Before we get to Friday’s lineup, let’s check in on Wednesday’s team. Well, the offense was awesome with two 20-point players and four more batters tallying 9-14 points, but Francisco Liriano was disappointing and Jimmy Nelson got roughed up by the long ball in the first inning. Most of my lineups...

Prospect Pulse: Seth Lugo Exceeding Expectations

In 19.2 innings for Double-A Binghamton, Lugo is 2-0 with a stellar 1.37 ERA. During his last outing on Tuesday, Lugo allowed just one run and five hits in 6.2 innings. “He certainly has major league potential...

Brewers 6, Cubs 1 (5/2/15)

OSS: Cubs strike out 18 times on the way to a loss Three up: 1. Aside from a Braun HR in the first (and another near-HR his next time up), I thought Arrieta looked pretty good in this game. Just all the bad luck you can think of in the second, with a bunch of bloops and meh contact finding holes for hits. In his not-defense though, the Brewers were running wild on him as he had no...

Fantasy Roundup: I’m Still Buying Nelson

To begin the season I was skeptical about Jimmy Nelson as a breakout candidate, but after watching him mow down the Reds in his third start I was ready to believe — so much so I started last night in my DraftKings lineup. The biggest reason why I skeptical about Nelson entering the season was he didn’t have a pitch to get lefties out. However, that notion changed once I saw how...

DraftKings: Going Full Nelson On Your Opponents

Greetings one and all...oh who am I kidding. Greetings the one that is all. Thanks for reading! So, in full truthiness, I went and googled 'Full Nelson'.

The Impact Of Jimmy Nelson’s New Curve

The lone bright spot for the Milwaukee Brewers so far this season has been the stellar performance of Jimmy Nelson, who boasts a 1.35 ERA and 0.70 WHIP through three starts. The 26-year-old right-hander has racked up 17 strikeouts while issuing just four walks in 20 innings of work this spring. Nelson’s encouraging early results have been one of the most compelling fantasy storylines...

3 Waiver Wire Pickups, Week 3

Two weeks ago I started off our Waiver Wire articles in the opening week of the season. I advised caution and patience with the guys you drafted. You drafted them for a reason, and two to three days of o-fers doesn’t change that. But, I did recommend three guys that should be picked up if you were facing injuries, or if you drafted injured players to stash on the DL.  Those three were...

Brewers at Pirates preview

The Pittsburgh Pirates and Milwaukee Brewers scored the most runs in the NL Central last season, but they're struggling ahead of this weekend's series at PNC Park.

With the MLB week now over half done, our attention (in H2H leagues) turns to those last-minute pitcher adds to seal up the counting stats or preserve the ratios. Remember, if you’re in a league where you have spare weekly transactions or no transaction limit at all, you can make defensive adds by claiming the day’s best starters even if you have no intention of using them.

It’s April and the Pirates can’t hit again

Welp, stop me if you’ve heard that one before. I am still very confident that this is a good offense. A couple of awful games doesn’t change that. They are in a slump.
