Brewers Friday: Milwaukee makes room for Nelson in rotation

MILWAUKEE -- After discussing the switch over the last couple of weeks, the Milwaukee Brewers officially moved Marco Estrada out of the starting rotation Thursday night to make way for top pitching prospect Jimmy Nelson. What made the timing right for Nelson to come up now? The right-hander was simply pitching too well to stay in Triple-A. "I think it had both to do with him...

Jimmy Cracked Corn, Insert Team He’s Facing

Now that I'm married Jimmy Carter's line, "I've looked on a lot of women with lust. I've committed adultery in my heart many times." Really stands out to me. I don't necessarily want to think about Jimmy Carter in lust, or even contemplating lust. The thing he doesn't say is if he wasn't married, he'd be lusting too. Men are men, and...

5 New Questions About the 2014 Brewers

Before the season started, I had 10 Questions About the 2014 Brewers.  It’s interesting in hindsight to see what I was concerned about at the time.  In many cases, the players I was unsure of have exceeded expectations – including Khris Davis, Aramis Ramirez, and Matt Garza.  Now that more than half of the 2014 season is ancient history, I thought it might be worth raising...

Estrada pitches well but Brewers can't solve Jays' Hutchison

With Drew Hutchison on his game for Toronto on Tuesday afternoon, the Milwaukee Brewers needed to take advantage of the few opportunities they had in order to win the series opener over the Blue Jays. The Brewers collected just four hits, went 0-for-5 with runners in scoring position, left seven on base and struck out 11 times to waste a solid start from Marco Estrada in a 4-1 loss...

Brewers looking to pad NL Central lead prior to All-Star break

More than in any other team sport, early-season success is generally met with suspicion by baseball fans, and that skepticism only grows when the club in question finished 14 games under .500 at the conclusion of the previous campaign. Following a dismal 74-88 record which landed them fourth in the NL Central and 23 games back of the St. Louis Cardinals in 2013, the Milwaukee Brewers...

Brewers dodge sweep behind Gennett's first career grand slam

MILWAUKEE -- Three key bats were out of the lineup against one of the best young pitchers in baseball, a struggling starting pitcher was on the mound and the bullpen was taxed after a 16-inning loss the night before. It seemed like everything was stacked against the Milwaukee Brewers on Wednesday afternoon. But instead of being swept for the first time this season, the Brewers pounded...

Milwaukee Brewers: Marco Estrada should move to the bullpen

The title of this is a bit misleading, I must say. Milwaukee Brewers starter Marco Estrada has only recently begun struggling on the mound, so this piece will not be suggesting that Estrada should be permanently removed from the rotation. In his last three starts, Estrada has only made it through six innings once and has given up 18 earned runs on 22 hits. He has also given up...

Brewers' offense leads the way in wild win

After the Milwaukee Brewers and Colorado Rockies combined to score five runs in the first inning Friday, Ron Roenicke knew it was going to be one of those nights where it was going to take a crooked number to win. It was one of those nights at Coors Field. The Brewers tied a season-high with 19 hits, as five players had at least three hits to help Milwaukee to a 13-10 slugfest of...

Daily DraftStreet Picks: Friday, Jun 20

Yesterday, for the first time, we unveiled two Official Lineups. Originally I constructed my lineup with an Athletics stack, but I had one major concern: Full disclosure — I’m a little unsure of this stack because while [Jake] Peavy often allows a lot of home runs, he’s rediscovered his control, limiting walks, and Boston’s bullpen looks to be firing on all cylinders.

Brewers' Estrada vows to be better after Sunday's shaky outing

MILWAUKEE -- Despite another start in which he struggled to keep the ball in the ballpark and runs off the board, Marco Estrada's spot in Milwaukee's rotation appears to be safe -- for now. Brewers manager Ron Roenicke offered a bit of support for his struggling right-hander after Estrada gave up three more home runs and five runs over five innings in Milwaukee's 13-4...

Brewers 3, Mets 1: Wily Peralta pitches a gem

For the second consecutive night, a Brewers starting pitcher was outstanding at allowing very few walks. Last night, Marco Estrada still managed to give up six earned runs because of his unholy ability to allow home runs. Tonight, Wily Peralta was a bit more effective. Peralta managed to pitch into the seventh inning, allowing just four hits to a weak-hitting Mets squad. New York...

Estrada, Roenicke frustrated after Brewers setback versus Mets

After yet another start in which he was burned by the home-run ball, Marco Estrada's spot in Milwaukee's rotation may be in jeopardy. Estrada gave up his major-league leading 19th and 20th home runs of the season, as the New York Mets scored six runs on just five hits in a 6-2 victory over the Brewers at Citi Field. A two-run home run by Daniel Murphy got the Mets on the...

WATCH: Mets Catcher Taylor Teagarden Hits A Grand Slam

The New York Mets catching situation this season has been, to say the least, pretty bad.

With the bases loaded and two outs in the sixth inning facing Marco Estrada of the Milwaukee Brewers, he did something only one...
