Jordan Zimmermann: About Last Night (September 08)

The storyline from last night’s Nationals/Mets game belongs to the bullpen failings of the Nationals, Matt Williams qualifications for continued employment, Matt Harvey‘s struggles after his innings limit announcement, and the Mets comeback in some such order that depends on which broadcast you happened to watch last night and what color blue to which you’re …

MLB Daily Heat Check Wednesday, September 09

Here you’ll find information regarding the pitchers that light up the radar gun each and every night. I’ve listed for both starters and relievers the top average pitch velocity with a heading for type. It doesn’t equate to quality of an outing or take into consideration the end result of the pitch (sometimes really, really …

Jordan Zimmermann: About Last Night (September 03)

I haven’t followed the Braves this season. Other than reading about another trade, my Braves viewing came at the beginning of the year when they played either the Mets or the Nationals, so the last would be the beginning of July. After seeing the pinball type numbers the Yankees dropped on them and hearing they’d …

Jordan Zimmermann: About Last Night (August 29)

I don’t think you could have faulted Jordan Zimmermann (11-8) if he’d lost all ability to think coherently and grooved one to Derek Dietrich after Martin Prado nearly decapitated Zimmermann with a comeback liner in the fourth. Ichiro Suzuki had just worked his way on with a single, and on the next pitch Prado unleashed …

Jordan Zimmermann: About Yesterday Afternoon (August 23)

It certainly didn’t look good early for Jordan Zimmermann (10-8). After Scooter Gennett singled on a curve that just broke lazily, Jonathan Lucroy hit a two-run home run to left center on a slider that was just broken. Oh, Ryan Braun then hit a fastball off the base of the right field wall. Is any …

Jordan Zimmermann: About Last Night (August 18)

If your starters have struggled staying in the game, as have the Nationals (Joe Ross‘ 4+ innings on Sunday was the longest by a Nats starter over the last three games entering Tuesday), then playing a game in Colorado probably isn’t ideal. According to the MASN graphic to kick off the broadcast, an average of …

Jordan Zimmermann: About Last Night (August 12)

Back in the 80s and 90s you had set the VCR to record if you were likely to miss a show on television. This is obvious to individuals of a certain age. The VCR was such a great invention. I remember recording Voltron episodes, somehow stumbling on a young Sarah Michelle Gellar in some kid’s …
