Anderson has given up 4 runs or less in every start but one (17 of 18, 94%).
Nelson has given up 4 runs or less in 23 of 27 (85%).

I'll agree Nelson has the better stuff but there are days he just doesn't have it. Anderson has been consistently above average in pretty much all his starts.

Well sure when you start 50% fewer games you have a lot fewer chances at a bad start. Give each of them 100 starts and I highly doubt Anderson is more consistent. Nelson is also going deeper into games giving him more chances to turn that 3 run game into a 4 run game. Some of those runs were also unearned, runs are a team stat.

I can't imagine we'll really have much of a choice who would start a wildcard game in reality. If we are a few games ahead in the wildcard, we almost certainly would have won the division. Wildcard would come down to the last game or two of the season and we'd likely start whoever's turn it is. The gap between Nelson and Davies right now isn't much...Davies has had some gems lately. Anderson is a bit further behind due to his time off but hopefully he'll get locked back in down the stretch here.

A little irrelevent talking about wild card implications for a division winner...


The Brewers are 2.5 games back of the Cubs for the division, and 3 games back of the Rockies (5 of the Diamondbacks) for the Wild Card. It's probably just as likely that we catch one of the Wild Card teams as it is that we catch the Cubs.

Gotcha. I like the optimism.

I definitely still think the WC is our most likely way in. Only gotta catch 1 team out of 2, both with tough schedules instead of 1 our of 1 with an easy one.

Also not totally sold on the legitimacy of either WC team compared to the Cubs

Of course that would set us up with L.A. if we even win our play-in game, but we've played them tough.

3-3 against the Dodgers this season, and held them to 3 or fewer runs in five out of six. I like the team's chances. I think the Dodgers are cocky enough to think the Crew is a pushover... and the Crew could take them, especially if a Suter or Davies is red hot and the offense shows up.

I have to give you credit, Clancy. [tongue] You could probably find a way to work Brent Suter into a conversation about diced ham.

It is very unlikely that Suter would face a single batter in the post season if we make it.

I agree that Suter is far from the most important player to get hot, but with a lineup consisting of LH batters Bellinger, Gonzalez, Seager, Utley, and Granderson, I'd guess that Suter would get some time on the mound if the Brewers faced the Dodgers in the post season.

I know it isn't related, but on that same guys twitter he has a thing for hard hit ball leaders and Braun is in 2nd. He's having quite the unlucky season, as his K rate isn't THAT bad to offset being 2nd in baseball in hard hit rate.

Yep, Braun has been unlucky a bit but part of it as well is that he seems to not get many balls elevated. Not sure if his swing pattern has changed or what but if he could get the ball elevated again, dingers and doubles will happen.

“There's a fine line between being confident and cocky, or overconfident. This is an extremely humbling game. But if you don't believe in yourself, no one else is going to believe in you.”

Yea I saw a comment in the bad offense thread saying how awful BRaun has been. Yes, he had that really out of character 10 games or so there in late August with bad ABs and popups. But the 2 weeks before that he's never been hotter and overall he's hit the ball hard all year. That stat totally passes the eye test. I'll post the JSonline article for the 3rd time to hopefully dispel this notion. Granted, this was written right before the weird cold spell with lots of popups from a guy who almost never pops up, so stats would likely be a bit worse now.

We still have 3 starters in Davies, Anderson, and Woodruff that I feel confident in. We need to find a 4th in the next couple weeks if we're going to play beyond that. Hopefully Jungmann can be it.
