He was spotted a lead against Cy Young candidate Dickey and couldn't hold it. And he couldn't even go 6 innings. Discouraging. At least we don't have to worry about him facing the Braves in that pressure environment this weekend.
Wait a minute, he was spotted a lead? A one run lead and the Mets aren't the worst hitting team out there. He just didn't pitch well, and still only gave up 2 runs. True he should be going deeper into games and something is making me think he just isn't right considering his control is all over the place lately.
For the Nats to win, they must get into the bullpen. Also, don't blame Zimmerman who yes is cooling off lately and is making horrible throws recently (just throw sidearm, kid) just because he is having trouble sizing up a KNUCKLEBALL. It's the hardest pitch to hit because you can't track it.
