Ticket sales are going to suck wind next year, with Strasburg being out. But knowledgable fans realize that Zimmermann, Desmond, and Espinosa represent a really nice core of young, new talent infused into our team that will give us something to look forward to in 2011.
I'm kind of interested in seeing Balester get some extending 'pen innings this fall too. Everytime he goes down, then comes back up, he's added an MPH to his fastball. I'm ready for 98 this time.
Yes, I know. I will be there this weekend so I hope he gets some innings too. He's hit 97 mph a lot with 94-96 most of the time. That curve ball, though, is his out pitch... It just drops off the table.
