Ryan Zimmerman was not a farm product...he was already an all-star college prospect from UVA. Flores was a rule five acquisition from the Mets organization and Lannan, Martis and JZ have not been knocking the socks off anybody. Please.
We drafted RZ though. We have developed Flores. He was a meager mediocre A-ball prospect when we acquired him.
Lannan has a 3.63 ERA. solid. Martis is 5-0 and has looked pretty impressive at times. JZ has struggled a bit but he will be a good one for a long time.
How can you not be excited about the offense and rotation we are building for the future? The main thing keeping us from winning games right now is those pieces of crap in the pen. 15 of our 28 losses right there.
With an average bullpen we would be 18-21 right now and 3.5 games out of first place.
