I don't think he deserved to be bashed after that outing. He's a young pitcher. If he developed a patter of that I would agree but not after one game. I bet you wouldn't do the same if it has been ZNN.
i wasn't here last night and from what i saw zimmermann made mistakes, he gave up 5 runs ... not good. flores and zimmermann should know better to throw a fastball right down the plate on 3-0.
both zimmermann and martis are young. but martis had a bad outing on monday, i wasn't going to sit back and say good job young fellow. he was given a big lead and blew it.
these kids are learning. strasburg / zimmermann / lannan / martis and hopefully balester/olsen/etc can fill out our rotation for years to come.
