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.
