Stephen Strasburg is struggling with his command, over 65 pitches through three.
On the other side, knuckleballer R.A. Dickey is dominating the Nats with a bevy of offspeed pitches that have befuddled the team.
Yet, I'm optimistic. Sure, maybe the Nats don't win today (I'm not giving up hope... I'm just saying "if") but I feel a good vibe around the team.
Call me optimistic, but I'm happy with the direction of the team. Zimm, Dunn, Hammer provide a credible 3-4-5 and Strasburg teamed with Zimmermann gives the team a 1-2 tandem at the top of the rotation.
I'm optimistic... I think everyone else should be as well.
