OK, so Zim is NOT playing tonight and the worry meter is indeed off the charts.
I'm starting a pool, give your guess in the comments section - what day will Zim go on the 15-day DL? Not the retroactive date, the day the club actually makes the move. Add your guess on when he'll play again, too, if you'd like.
I should have made it my poll question for the week, and I would have had time considering how slow the Nats are about making these kinds of decisions. It will still be "a little tight, just a precaution" in a week or so when he finally goes on the DL.
Also, I won't be repeating this post this season.
I'm watching the Orioles now and they're about to fall to 1-8. They look awful. They drew 9,100 and change the other night. The hotshot new closer is already on the DL and, apparently, on the managers Sh** List.
I don't much understand it. I don't pay attention too closely but I thought the Orioles were putting it together a little bit last season. Their version of Greatness, Matt Wieters, is still on the club.
This is about to be an 0-6 opening homestand. They could have a crowd of 11 when they come back from the west coast.
I still like their hats.
