When Zimmermann Comes Back, Stick With Him | Tim's Tidbits | Washington Nationals Daily News

"When Zimmermann went down last season, it was a major blow to the Nationals. But it should have also been an opportunity for another young pitcher to step up. Instead, fans were treated to night after night of 5-inning, 4-run performances by the likes of Garrett Mock, Ross Detwiler, J.D. Martin and others. And that type of mediocrity has continued and even spread to some previously reliable pitchers."

Washington Post - D.C. Sports Bog - Dan Steinberg - "Bring your 'K' posters to Businessman's Strasmas"

"Wednesday is the first Businessman's Strasmas of the season, and it promises to be a scorcher, with predicted 99 degree temperatures and an over/under of 15,999.5 jokes linking "Stephen Strasburg" and "high heat." In fact, Capital Weather Gang is running a poll on which will be higher, the speed of Strasburg's first pitch or the temperature at gametime."

MASNsports.com - Byron Kerr - "Strasburg will be an All-Star for years to come, but maybe not in '10"

"We are less than three weeks away from Anaheim it what could be a Nationals-laden and Nationals headline-heavy week at the All-Star Game. Bryce Harper, the Nationals number one overall selection, will be there, attending the Golden Spikes Award presentation as the only junior college nominee."
