If Gio gets the first pitch over for a strike, he's money.

Yeah I think the average goes down to like .180 when he goes 0-1

Zim talks about today's game.

-----------
"If we had lost that game," Zimmerman said, "it would've been hard for me to sleep tonight."

...

"That was one of my worst games," he said. "But, we won. So I don't even remember it anymore."
---------

Zim shows again why he is such a fan favorite.

Nice call by FP predicting the wild pitch.

Good teams make the opponent pay for mistakes. Good teams pat their lead in the standings by mercilessly beating up on bad teams.

So far, the Nats are doing both of those things. There's more to being a good team than that, of course, but so far so good.

I haven't seen this team beating up on anybody.  They need to start finding a way to produce runs themselves because I'm starting to get pretty optimistic about what the pitching is capable of.

Damn, so this is only the second time we've been over .500 after just our fifth win in eight years. That's depressing, to think six of eight years we were under .500 when we notched win number five, but a Damn good sign this year. Numerous uno in the NL East, baby! Suck on that, Fidelity loving Marlin's jerk!

Now, now, before we go printing up the NL Champion banner let's get a couple of more months into the season.  That said, yesterday was unreal.

Fun game!

I was sort of upset hammonds and I didn't run into any WNFFers. Only a matter of time until we do.
