Blogger Conference Call Notes - (Paraphrased by yours truly)...
1st Segment - John Lannan, Jordan Zimmermann, Ross Detwiler, Craig Stammen...
McCatty vs St. Claire? -
John Lannan - "Saint" more into the video aspect...likes to talk video, statistical analysis, McCatty is more about feel and what you see...Couldn't ask for a better pitching coach than they have now.
? For Zimmermann and Detwiler about throwing so many strikes...
Detwiler - My problem was giving up hits, was throwing strikes early, but (strikes were) too good, needs to throw more quality strikes...
Zimmermann - Problem is he gets ahear 0-2 and makes too good a pitch, throws it over the plate instead of wasting one...
Any Draft Day Memories?
Stammen - It was one of those deals where I was just happy to be drafted, and get the opportunity to play major league baseball.
Zimmermann - Really excited, didn't take too long to sign, a week or so, and headed right to Vermont...
Detwiler - Had no idea where I was going, when he heard it was the Nationals he was pretty excited, knowing he could come up quicker in DC.
Lannan - Happy to be drafted, and get going and start professional career.
Any Advice For Strasburg?
Stammen - Stay humble, keep a level head and keep working hard, doing what he's been doing...
Injury for Jordan Zimmermann?
Zimmermann - Elbow is just fine, a little tired, be ready to go on Saturday. (No lingering effects?) - Nothing.
