Ryan Zimmerman....

I watched Zimmerman play in person twice over the weekend, he's a baller. He'll be just fine. Sort of sad that he's the only legit player on the Nats...what terrible, terrible team.

Buy low, He's still better than he is playing and has shown signs of coming on.

Dude, you don't luck your way into 47 doubles in your rookie year.

Keep in mind the kid is still a kid. He turns 23 this year. Think Miguel Cabrera his first couple years. That's how good Zim is going to be. He's just going through a bump in the road.

He's .348/.444/.478 in the last week. Unbelieveably he has no RBI then, but he has 2 SB's to go with it. So, he's hitting doubles right now and getting on base. I would think he'll start heating up even more the rest of the week.

He is nowhere near as good as MCab but he is much better than how he's played.

If you mean in terms of power, probably not, but Zimmerman is a 5 tool player where as Cabrera is not.

I won't what you are smoking if you think any Nat will have over 20 sbs.... Felipe will probably lead the team at the end of the year with 15.

YardBirds wrote::-? How is Zimm a 5 tooler? Not with Manny Acta in the Dug out. I would say he'll put up 80 / 20 / 20 / .300 / 20 (Manny doesn't run on the bases alot, just ask Felipe Lopez). Think JD Drew in LA, but at 3B for the Nats.



there I fixed that for you.

Cabrera has far more hitting ability than Zimmerman can only dream of. And I like Zimmerman a lot.

Miguel is probably the only hitter comparable to Pujols.... Zim wishes he had that ability. And I make a substantial bet that Zim is nowhere close to 20 steals by the end of the season.
