Ryan Zimmerman got to 30 HRs on Friday night, so it is time to finish up the Zimmerman March to 30 HR uniform gallery:
Not too much to say other than “I told you so.” I’m not usually big on that phrase, but I’ve been saying Zim is a 30+ HR guy since 2007, when the then 22 year old hit 24 HRs. But nobody outside of this fan base seemed to believe it was possible. Well, there you have it. Yes, it’s an arbitrary number, but 30 HRs is a symbol of being a power hitter. Congrats to Ryan, and congrats to the Nats for signing this guy to an extension. Everyone who criticized that deal, how does a 30 HR gold glove third basemen not deserve this money?
