• The Day In Quotes: 

Ryan Zimmerman on Sirius/XM MLB Network Radio's Power Alley

Ryan Zimmerman on Stephen Strasburg's first week: "It's a zoo. You really don't see it in baseball as much as other sports, I think you see it in the NBA and NFL, people come out to watch LeBron, or people go to see the Cowboys or something like that, but I've never seen anything like it in baseball. For the amount of pressure and amount of hype, and everything that Steve has on him, I think he's done a great job and obviously his first two starts have been pretty good."

Drew Storen on ESPN 980's The Sports Fix

Drew Storen on Pitching To Pudge: "I tell you what, it's been a big part of the experience for me, coming in and throwing to a guy like that, and even Wil Nieves too, both of those guys are catchers that really take pride in what they call, and take pride in knowing a hitter. So that helps for us, when you come in, especially being a young guy and having a catcher that knows a hitter like that, you can kinda come in and let them take care of it, and let them call the game and you don't have to think too much, cause you have confidence in what they're calling...I talked to [Pudge] the other day after I came in against Cleveland, I talked to him on the bus after the game about what I was throwing and just for him to take pride in that and want to help me out is pretty unbelievable."
