How much is Ryan Zimmerman struggling? He's currently slugging 56 points lower than Jordan Zimmermann.

He's probably hurt again for reals this time.

Not just Zimmerman but add LaRoche , Morse and Desmond and they are a combined 1 for 26 this weekend.

Looks like all are being pitched away. Zim may be hurt.

3, 4 and 5 need to be adjusted.

Could be in his yearly slump right now. Or he could be hurt like usual. We dont know.

LaRoche and Desmond are just cooling down. Morse just needs to get in to the groove.

Zimmerman is quickly becoming a liability. I have to wonder if signing him to that extension was such a good idea

Sometimes I think they should just find a ball to swing at, and try to bloop it into the outfield. Or bunt. Get humble. Go from there. Not making contact is habit forming.

Even before the GIDP, I couldn't figure out why Davey didn't have Zimm bunt with two on and no out today as bad as he's been hitting.  Wish he hadn't made contact in that AB.

Some guys get married to an "approach."

You never bunt your three hole hitter no matter how bad you think he's going.

It's probably time to mix up the lineup again

Espinosa
Lombardozzi
Harper
Morse
Zimmerman
Laroche
Desmond
Flores

Executing a bunt would have given us runners on second and third with one out, in a 3-2 game, in the 8th inning.

...but you "never bunt your three hole hitter no matter how bad you think he's going"...   :roll:

he sucks - that is the problem - seriously I think they are afraid to give him hitting tips because he is the "face" - he should look at 3 strikes unless 1st base is empty

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

Unfortunately, a bunt has to be properly executed to be successful.  You can't assume it's a 100% lock when you call for the play.

Since he's in a slump, wouldn't it have been wise to have him bunting in the 8th inning with Lombardozzi and Harper on base?  Let him try to break out of the slump after we tie/win the game instead of deepening his slump by grounding into a DP.  :|
