No! Why did it have to be Ryan Zimmerman (again!) with a walkoff against the Yankees?

Here is today's edition of "Behind the Squawkers," and it relates to last night's horror show against the Nationals. Cue flashback music. It was way back in June 2006, the first year of this blog. Squawker Jon and I had gone to Washington, D.C. to visit my brother, who lived in Arlington, Virginia then, and to watch the Yankees play the Nationals. The weekend was a bit of a nightmare...

Watch: Ryan Zimmerman Hits 10th Career Walk-off HR to Push Nats past Yankees

  View image | Bryce Harper may be the Nationals‘ headliner, but the “Original” Ryan Zimmerman stole the show with his 10th walk-off home run of his career to give the Nationals a 8-6 win over the New York Yankees in the 10th inning. Nearly nine years to the date of his first walk-off homer, coincidentally against the Yankees, Zimmerman stole another...

Staying the course has helped Zimmerman get out of his slump

April was not a good month for Washington Nationals first baseman Ryan Zimmerman, who started the season with a .217 batting average. But the season is long, and over the course of 162 games, the numbers even out. Which is happening for him right now. A third of the way through May, Zimmerman’s average is steadily rising, as he’s now batting .236. So what did he do to break...

Ryan Zimmerman Hits Ball Twice with One Swing

On the box score it will appear Ryan Zimmerman collected his second RBI with a single up the middle to score Ian Desmond in the seventh, nothing special. But what will not show up in the box score is the swing that gave the Nationals a 4-0 lead was anything but normal. Zimmerman managed to hit the ball twice with one swing. The ball initially hit near the handle of the bat and rode...

Ryan Zimmerman's tremendous diving catch (Video)

Raise your hand if you were concerned about Ryan Zimmerman adjusting to life on the other side of the diamond (we're looking at you, Matt Williams). Up above, video of one of two great plays by Zim at first in last night's 2-1 win over the Mets. Oh, Zim mashed a 2-run bomb as well (video here). He's gonna be OK over there. (Screencap via video)

When Ryan Zimmerman is Miguel Cabrera

Look at this nonsense: I should probably explain this nonsense: That’s Ryan Zimmerman. He’s swinging at a pitch from Jacob deGrom. As you can tell, that’s Zimmerman making contact with a pitch from Jacob deGrom. And that contact resulted in a dinger. It put the Nats up in the first inning. Washington wouldn’t score again. They’d win anyway. It can […]

Nats place Ryan Zimmerman on DL

After missing 44 games this season to a fractured thumb, the Washington Nationals have again placed 3B Ryan Zimmerman on the MLB disabled list.   This time Zim goes to the DL with a strained hamstring.  Zimmerman injured his hamstring last night in the sixth inning when he drove in a run on a ground ball.  After passing and stepping on first base, Zimmerman instantly felt discomfort...

Video: Ryan Zimmerman hits go-ahead HR in the 16th inning, makes spectacular catch

So Ryan Zimmerman picked a pretty good time to hit his first home run since returning from his DL stint, blasting a 2-run home run in the 16th inning to give the Nats a 4-2 lead in the longest game in Nationals team history. And then there was his amazing catch in the bottom of the inning; fittingly, Zim also caught the final out of the game, Nats win 4-2. Here's Zim's catch. He...

Ryan Zimmerman, left fielder

Well, guess it won't really be official until the first time Ryan Zimmerman trots out to left field for the real, live, Washington Nationals, but Saturday marked the debut of Ryan Zimmerman, left fielder, albeit for the Potomac Nationals. On Sunday, Zim saw his first defensive chances, which may or may not have led him to try to pull the plug on the whole experiment with another...
