Injury bug

Injury bug

Well, poop - I guess I at least caught Ryan Zimmerman's last game before he went on the 15 day disabled list. Saturday night, Zimmerman re-injured an abdominal strain sliding into 2nd base that first bothered him during spring training. Huge bummer! Things seem a bit touch-and-go with new first baseman, Adam LaRoche as well, initially bothered by a slight tear in his throwing shoulder and now a "slightly" strained groin suffered yesterday, which made for an interesting defensive alignment ...

You Can’t Judge A Season By One Series

Posted on April 5, 2011 at 10:15 am

But what about two with the Marlins series starting tonight? I kid, I kid! I have nothing much to say about Sunday's series finale loss at the brutal choking hands of the Braves. The notes in my scoresheet read simply: Bad bad D! Bad bullpen. Yep, that about sums it up. I'm sure most of you saw the game or already read the recaps, so no need to rehash it here, except to say GACK! I've been listening to Glee CDs on repeat ... Continue Reading

He can pitch! He can field!

Photo: Sean Burnett from Thursday's opener So was that game yesterday exciting or what?! That's the kind of game that is so fun to watch. It had everything from home runs to a successful suicide squeeze to hail to a suspenseful win! But I'm here to rave more about Sean Burnett. I think I'm in baseball love. I know pitchers, particularly relief pitchers, can be the most inconsistent players in the game, going from on top of their game to useless ... Continue Reading

The New Guys and Old Guys

Since there are still a few hours before the Nats' second game of the season, I can squeeze one more post out of opening day. So, I sounded pretty grumpy yesterday morning and I apologize. I should have just posted the pics and left it at that! One game is certainly not enough to judge a season or a player by, and should hopefully not set the mood for the rest of the season. Not that I did any judging, ... Continue Reading

Jordan Zimmermann and Today’s Pitching

Jordan Zimmermann and Today’s Pitching

The Nationals took the field as visitors in their new red unis. J-Zimm rocked today! And I don't mean that in the "he gave up a lot of hits/runs" sense, but rather was rockin' on the mound against the Marlins. He was the only player on the field rocking the high red socks look compared to the other 8 on the field with pants to their shoe-tops, and Zimmermann mowed through the Marlins lineup for 5 innings before turning the ...
