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.
