I'm not surprised that Zimm is playing through pain. He's a gamer and a team-first guy.
What I am surprised a bout is how dumb he is being about this. He admits that he cannot get around on fastballs. And it seems like his plate approach is just to keep trying to get around on fastballs. Hey Ryan, how about making some kind of adjustment and just trying to slash a few doubles into the gaps, singles up the middle and when you run into one, great. But to keep trying to pull a pitch you cannot get around on? That's maddening.
