Jordan Zimmerman (6-5, 3.03) is wondering who he is pitching against. The answer is Yohan Flande (0-2, 7.36). Zimmerman deadpanned, “Oh, did he get called up from the Little League World Series?” Translation: the Nats are looking forward to frolicking around at Coors Playground tonight as the 500-1 favorites.
The only beacon of light in the team is Ben Paulsen who made his debut last night without the frustration that everyone else are exhibiting. Paulsen was the only guy who didn’t swing for the fences and hit what the pitcher gave him. It was observed that most other Rockie players threw the bat and/or helmet in frustration while running to first base. The veterans need to observe Paulsen’s baseball conduct on the field.
By the way, don’t expect to see a post game report tonight as I will be at the game tonight and expecting to lose 23-1, nothing to write home about. The only “news” is that there are rumors going around that Walt Weiss and Bill Geivett aren’t seeing eye to eye which only increases the pressure on Dick Montfort to do something somewhere in the front office.
Tulo not listed in either starting lineup nor on the list of bench players. Waiting for update – likely Tulo going on DL and who is coming up?
