October 4, 2014. Jordan Zimmermann pitched 8 and 2/3 innings of 1-run ball, allowing 3 hits vs. the Giants and when Matt Williams came to get him and pull him from the game, the Giants road to the World Series became possible.
The Nationals are loaded. Dusty Baker has been brought in to lead the troops and that is scary because Giants fans know first-hand how much better the Nationals will be now with Dusty running the team. But the team will more than likely not re-sign Zimmermann with so many other pitchers on their staff making big money.
Every Giants fan remembers how dominant Zimmermann looked that night in October, and every fan should be hoping that the free agent market thinks as little of Zimmermann as Williams did that night. Hopefully he falls into the laps of the Giants and he becomes the one who gets paired with Bumgarner.
So by the power vested in me by the state of the internet, I proudly pronounce Jordan Zimmermann signed by the San Francisco Giants.
