Day two of Zimmerman sitting out of spring training. This can't last long can it?

I read where they expect him on the field early this week.

I don't get why they didn't have him in game one after all the questions from last year. Is he not ready or did he just not want to play?

Pretty cool of Zimm to get the entire team to stick around in the dugout for Barrett's inning.  Good leadership.

I will never understand the hate for Ryan Zimmerman among a small number of Nats fans.

.264 / .337 / .486 last year

Do we also need a "Where is Matt( .239 / .309 /  .477) Adams Killing Us More" thread too?

Maybe it's not "hate" as much as a guy who took off last spring and batted .264 in 85 games.     :shrug:     The thread could be changed to simply "Where is Zimmerman?"

There's no guarantee that had he played in more games in the spring his season would have been any different.  I guess we'll see what happens this year.

IMHO     It's just a bad look.

No guarantee, but he was pathetic in April, and good after that. That says to me that he probably would have had a more productive April had he played more spring training games.

Cool your jets, Zimm haters.  He'll get plenty of spring training starts, ok ?  Geez...

Ryan Zimmerman, though, spoke to his Nationals teammates before Saturday night’s Grapefruit League opener and made it clear no one was to leave the dugout until the completion of the fifth inning, until Aaron Barrett had completed his first appearance in a big league game in 3 1/2 years

IIRC I read it was to be Tuesday. No sense in him having a 5 hour bus ride today.

Soto is the only starter playing today.

Here we go again.  Game four, only position player who hasn't appeared (Suzuki plays today).

Hasn't Zimmerman been doing this since about 2016 when he said he was taking an old man approach to preparing in the spring so he could stay of the field more in the regular season?

Not sure what the big deal is. We have Matt Adams. And we can always sign Harper and put him at first.
