Pretty sure Zimm is still injured and is playing through it.

I still think it's just really bad luck on balls in play and HRs being just short (or wind taken away).

I think the shoulder is robbing his power. Did you see how shocked he was that ball wasn't a homer the other day?

Does Ryan Zimmerman even hit homers in batting practice?  Has anyone seen him in BP recently?

Mark Zuckerman was on the Sports Reporters (980 AM) today and said that Zimmerman has been crushing the ball during BP.  He doesn't believe that he's still injured.

Radio guys were saying that Davey was working with Zim on his batting stance. Said that Zim had started to really raise his hands and that Davey was emphasizing lowering his hands so the bat will come around quicker (particularly coming off a sore shoulder)

So ... maybe that will help

FP or Rob last night said the same thing.

So I don't get it.

Maybe his vision just isn't as good, or he's not at good at adjusting. BP is thrown from closer to the mound with no deception at all.

He signed the big contract this year. He'll struggle. Next year he'll be awesome.

Zimmerman is now down to 0.1 WAR on Fangraphs.

Will this be the night he hits zero? I hope not, I'm going tonight.

The Ryan Zimmerman dilemma

Move him down to 7 or 8 in the batting order? Or give him a short vacation?

Time for a change.

The best solution would be to find out what kind of morals clauses he has in his contract and then entrap him into violating them.

It's called a slump. All good hitters go through them.

Who do we have thats as good defensively?  RIPKEN went through it and he's a HOFer.  I could see moving him up and down but not off!

DL. He's hurt. He's trying to play through the pain, but his bat is killing this team. Put him on the DL, play Lombo at third and Moore in LF.

If his shoulder were still hurt, he couldn't make the terrific defensive plays he always makes.  I think this is HUGE CONTRACT HAVE TO PERFORM-itus.
