Definitely. I'm just hoping that 6 or 7 years down the road we're not saying "what could have been" about him. That'd suck.
That would suck. While they haven't given him a long term deal yet, it would seem they have already invested a lot of their future into Zimm being the future of this club. I think it would be a mistake to continue thinking that he is automatically going to become the "franchise guy." With that said, it is hard not to like Zimmerman. He went to UVA, used to party down at JMU (where his GF went), and has had some serious clutch hits. I hope we don't have to look back at him as wasted potential.
