The Zimm boys, Jordan and Ryan ganged up on the Phillies last night (June 3). What a fun game to watch!
Ryan lived up to all the ridiculous hype and actually did play left field. His first at bat said it all, as he blasted a rocket down the line in left for a double. For an encore, just in case there were one or two doubters remaining, he did the same thing into the corner in right field:) Many have said in amazement that Ryan usually shows up for Spring Training and from the first day will usually spray line drives all over the field! I believe it.
Jordan for his part found his feel and command of all his pitches again and put his problems of May in the rearview mirror! He easily pitched 8 strong innings and could have continued for a CG. Knowing how steady he is I’m confident we are in for “smooth sailing ahead” from J-Zimm.
As to what will happen with Ryan when Bryce Harper returns in mid-July, “Manager Matt’ said publicly “we will deal with that when it happens, based on how everyone is playing at that time.” I am not going to speculate therefore on something so complex, with so many variables, including possible future injuries, that will influence the team’s decision-makers.
One thought on “The Attack of the Brothers Zimm”
Everybody’s saying the right stuff but I just don’t see who you sit this year when Harper comes back. I could see a combo routine with Harper and Zim in LF for a while when Bryce first comes back just for health reasons but then what? Rendon is where he needs to be and no chance Harper replaces Span in CF. Werth aint goin’ anywhere either. I could see not staying with LaRoche next season and left Zim and Moore platoon at 1B but that’s a long way off. Your thoughts?
