Just wonderful news to wake up to this a.m., Zimmerman to the DL. They don't plan on actually playing Casto, do they?
To quote a Dr. Seuss book, I do not like this. I do not like this one little bit.
I'll add this: Fix it right, whatever it takes, even if it means missing a huge chunk of the season. I think we're safe in saying a playoff spot is out of the question. So do not bring the Face of the Franchise back one second before he's 100 percent. Take no chances.
And get him signed while he's out. It isn't his signing shoulder that's injured.
The Nationals.com version has the tidbit that Nick Johnson has had a setback in his recovery. I wish I could say I'm shocked. I love Nick but the poor guy is a "double" with every injury it seems - it takes him double the time it should to get back.
This is five from the Opening Day lineup on the DL, right? LoDuca, Johnson, Belliard, Zimmerman and Kearns?
