Washington Post Live! March 10, 2009

I’m long overdue for a TCN episode, so this will have to do for now. I think I’m getting a little better especially at following the rapid fire change of topics, and I realize I’m my own worst critic, but there were a couple awkward moments there. Like, how many times could I say Jordan Zimmermann?! (not that there’s anything wrong with that) At least it was relevant as he pitched yesterday, successfully working out of jams for the first time this spring — because it was the first time he’d found himself in one. I’d love to see the kids continue that consistency and poise, but I am curious to see how long it takes for hitters to figure him out at the major league level? Also, I totally brain-farted and forgot to mention that seeing a healthy Nick Johnson at first base and hitting home runs was definitely cause for optimism! Elijah Dukes has been hitting the ball well too, but I didn’t actually see him play much while there, so he didn’t pop into my head either.

  1. Very impressive and good insight. Bernadina probably deserves to make the roster ahead of Kearns and Willingham, but I think he is the odd man out. If he and Maxwell can get the reps in AAA, that will probably be better in the long run as next year there should be a chance to be a starter.

    Next year, I see Dunn moving to 1st base when Nick Johnson departs so that should create 1 opening as well as Wily Mo and Austin Kearns will be out of contract.

    On Jordan Zimmermann, I wouldn’t be surprised to see him start the year in AAA if Hill, Balester and Martis are all viable. Starting rotation of Lannan, Olsen, and Cabrera only leaves 2 openings.
