I hope the players union pushes hard for the DH in all leagues if they intend to strike before 2020. The current CBA expires after the 2021 season, and this issue of platooning a 1B wouldn't exist. With the DH and a 26 man roster, an extra utility hitter could be utilized to play the hot hand. Zim would be the starting 1B or DH depending on if he needed a day off, and Adams could be the opposite for RH opponents and lefty opponents would have to face the other utility guy, preferably right hitting.

Won’t need to.  Zimm will get hurt.

If he does, I'm jumping off the Zimm bandwagon.  And I'm the driver of that bus !

Dude's 34 years old, not exactly a geezer.  But he's being paid serious money to play, and has been having geezer "injuries".

No more defense from me now.  You're hurt ?  Then retire.  If not, get your fat ass out there and play !

Not to mention that he's probably the slowest guy on the team now (except for Adams).

And probably the smartest guy on the team.

He needs to use that intelligence to make up for the fact that he's apparently now a gimpy 34 year old !

That's how he figured out how to throw the way he does.

Hurts to watch that, doesn't it ?

Now, he needs to learn how to run when it hurts....

Plantar fasciitis ?  Play trough it !

Gets paid the same either way.

I am thinking that, as the Original National and Face of the Franchise, Zimm won't want to be seen in that light.

In the post-PED era, 34 is old.

Zimmerman just hit his first HR of the spring.

I don't disagree.  But still...

I'm 20 years older than my favorite player.  And I could still run the bases without going on the DL.

Not to mention the fact that I don't have a guaranteed 8 figure salary this year.

PF hurts like hell. It's not the kind of annoying, aching pain that you can ignore. You take a step and your body defends itself from the pain. You can wince through it after the first step, but that first step... you don't will yourself through it. The only answer for PF is prolonged rest.

You might be able to trot your old, decrepit self around the bases, but even broken down Zim would be at 2nd before you  got to first. You're giving yourself way, way too much credit.
