This reliever is throwing 90mph fastballs but has no control over where they go. We need to obliterate him.

He's channeling Jesus Colome.

I'd say 6, 2 for NL and 6, 3 for AL.

The gap is too big with those standards. That makes it the equivalent to 3 ERA in the NL vs 4.5 ERA in the AL as opposed to my idea which makes it 3 ERA in the NL vs 3.86 in the AL.

Here comes the Magnum ZI!  3 for 3 tonight, but I am sure he fizzles out now that we need him.

I don't like the Nats with bases loaded and 1 out, even with Zimm batting :?

Bases loaded, one out. That's always bad news on this team.

Don't talk about Kid Clutch that way.

A pitcher who throws a quality start in EVERY one of his starts is a pitcher with a 4.50 ERA.

That's not quality if you ask me. That measurement lowers the standard considerably.

Yep.  DP is all but guaranteed, esp with Dunn struggling lately.

not when the Lebron James of baseball is up. Zimmerman is UNSTOPPABLE right now.

nice RBI by Dukes and Kearns to cut the lead in half earlier...i don't think i've ever seen a dude get more hits off of pure strength alone than Dukes.

Just hit it Zimmy, a flyball would be enough to get a run.
