It's spring training for ... MASN
So I just got an email from a friend watching the game tonight who was watching the game at home. He was enjoying the MASN broadcast, and they went to an interview with the team's third baseman ... Brian Zimmerman.
Now, I know it's spring training, and we all make mistakes. But this is the guy we should know, right? I mean, if there's one guy on the team ...
They'll be in fine form by the opener, I'm sure. Already hearing good things about Don Sutton as the color analyst. Even Bob Carpenter, who loved working with Tom Paciorek last season, said that because there are so many interesting storylines with the pitchers that it might be good to work alongside a pitcher this season. They had the game on in the clubhouse when I was just down there (we're allowed into the clubhouse in the spring after the starting pitcher comes out), and Jason Bergmann was pitching, and after he had cruised through two innings he got in trouble in the third, and Sutton pointed out that Bergmann's fastball was now belt-high, rather than having the sinking action from the previous two innings. Good stuff.
Here's Tim Redding on his outing: "Unfortunately, the first inning was obviously a very big disaster." Well-put. He seems to have a clear idea of the nature of this competition, and he knows other people have pitched better than he has. Simontacchi's injury, though, may give him one more chance. We'll see.
Going to the ninth, it's Braves 5, Nationals 3. And yes, that is it for the night. I'll get you news about the cuts in the actual ink-and-paper newspaper (just $.35).
