Ryan is putting all the blame on the starting pitching:  :|

On paper, the Nationals are supposed to have a better offense with the additions of Milledge and Elijah Dukes, but the team is hitting .238. So what's wrong? Ryan Zimmerman had a tough time finding the answers.

"I don't know," Zimmerman said. "We have to keep working hard. Hopefully, things will turn around. There's no real answer, I don't think."

But a few seconds later, Zimmerman added that pitching is the key to success.

"As the pitching goes, we go, I think," he said. "That's the way it is with everybody. Look at the team in the other clubhouse. They have been playing well all year because their guys have been throwing well.

"When we went through that good stretch, we had solid starting pitching. It seems unfair to throw it on the starting pitching, but if you look at any good team in Major League Baseball, they have good starting pitching. We're young. We are going to go up and down. The biggest thing is, we have to learn from our mistakes and don't do it again the next time."
