Good, bad, ugly (and chat time change)

Here is the good.

Here is the bad.

And thus, even with four wins in five games, the Nationals have a bit of an ugly situation on their hands. Chad Cordero, the closer, is down for at least a couple of weeks, he said last night, because of the strained muscle in the back of his right shoulder. All this could be related to his tendinitis. It feels like just a matter of time before we hear about a surgery being scheduled for him. But he's got another MRI today, and he's hoping nothing's wrong -- again.

Zimmerman: Apparently, whenever he gets in a slump, I should write a story analyzing that slump, because he'll respond by going 3 for 4 with a homer and a tie-breaking two-run double. First three-hit game of the year. And the at-bats were noticeably better. Manny Acta said afterward that Zimmerman's head was much more still in his final at-bat, when he hit the double in the seventh. That comes from working with Bob Boone, who was here over the weekend. The Nationals need Boone -- who is also scouting their potential first-round pick -- to morph into like five of himself so he can be lots of places at lots of times.

Today: Strange 4:35 p.m. game time. Shawn Hill on the hill. As the notebook reported, he's still clearly dealing with issues.

CHAT UPDATE: Because of the strange starting time, my weekly chat has been moved to 3 p.m. You can still submit questions early, but please join me at that time.

I'll get you lineups and such when I get to Nationals Park.
