Still not convinced of Zimmermann's holiness. He is racking up the losses and that ERA is climbing and there are a bunch of stats (that Linty likes to point out) that he really isn't excelling in to be successful. Will he be a good pitcher? Probably. A back-up to Strasburg? I am losing that faith.

Yep. What's really worrying me is that Zimmermann seems to have that bona fide beast stuff that was promised to us, but he doesn't pitch like a beast. He's going after grounders and trying to nibble and be deceptive and clever, rather than just beating the crap out of opponents. The result is a mediocre player.
