Jimmy Nelson’s Attack

Last night, righty Jimmy Nelson continued his positive developments in 2015 by pitching his third consecutive quality start, and his sixth start with three-or-fewer runs since June 18. Stated simply, the youngster is dealing, improving his performance from a below-average-but-serviceable -7 runs prevented, 83.3 IP… [More]

Tuesday Morning Coffee: SP, Lucroy, Aramis, Trade Season

After scoring at least four runs in 12 of their first 16 games in July, the Brewers offense has gone completely cold. That cold streak extended from Phoenix to San Francisco, as Milwaukee lost to the Giants last night in a 4-to-2 affair. The game… [More]

Taylor Jungmann’s Debut

With another strong start in Arizona — even in a tough loss, Brewers starter Taylor Jungmann catapulted himself into a Top 30 WAR ranking against all other MLB pitchers. Consider this: based on WAR alone, Jungmann is a #1 ranking starter in 2015, having produced… [More]

Thursday Round-Up: Draft, Kirby, Nelson, 2014 Trades

Last night, our beloved Milwaukee Nine cast aside their terrible season and performed another evening of solid baseball, dismissing the contending New York Mets once more. Surely, one must cue the “we can’t even beat the lowly Brewers” talk from New York fans and media,… [More]

Friday Round Up: Draft, Tanking, Biogenesis, Comeback Win

Last night, the Brewers’ hopes looked dismal during an error-plagued start by Matt Garza, but the bats answered each of the errant frames with runs against Tanner Roark to tie the ballgame. Newly recalled second-baseman Scooter Gennett supplied the game-winning RBI in the bottom of… [More]

Tyler Cravy: Best Brewers Debut?

Let’s forget the offensive woes for a moment, and praise Tyler Cravy for his exceptional Major League debut. Last night, the organizational righty worked each of his pitches against the Cardinals, varying speeds and planes to confound Cardinals batters. While BaseballAmerica suggested a sinker /… [More]

Rebuilding Lessons: Cubs & Brewers Preview

In the upcoming series against the Cubs, the Brewers run their trio of organization arms against the Lakeview Nine. It’s hard not to see this series as a potential referendum on our Milwaukee club’s young arms. Wily Peralta (amateur, 2005), Jimmy Nelson (2nd, 2010), and… [More]

Tuesday Morning Coffee: Lose ‘Em All

The 2015 Milwaukee Brewers are hopefully on a mission to show that Spring Training truly does not matter. The Brewers lost again on Monday, their third consecutive one-run loss at the hands of organizational depth. Fortunately, there are a slew of interesting stories emerging, such… [More]
