With all the hubbub about the Nats efforts in this winter's free agent sweepstakes, it seems to me that we have forgotten about another potential issue? Why haven't the Nats resigned Ryan Zimmerman? Has anyone else beside myself, been asking themselves that question? Please correct if I am wrong, but didn't Zimmerman say that he did not like to talk contract during the season and looked to this winter to get a new contract? I believe, he also indicated that if the Nats did not sign him before the start of the 2012 season, he will probably become a free agent next winter. I remind folks that the Phillies need a new third baseman, and probably would be more than accommodating to sign Zim for whatever he wanted. So what has any one else heard on this matter?
