Jul 15, 2011, 6:30 PM EST

In his latest blog entry for, Ryan Zimmerman talks about his recent ziMS Foundation event at Nationals Park, the opportunity the Nats have put themselves in to make things interesting during the season’s second half and Tyler Clippard’s All-Star selection.

Oh, Zimmerman also reveals what he did over the break. Hint: It required a passport and probably plenty of sunscreen.

    My "realism" in the previous thread notwithstanding, I'm glad he thinks they have a chance. I'd be disappointed if he didn't.

    You got to believe, otherwise why play the game…

    You play to win the game.

    Because of injuries and slumps, anything can happen, so play to win.

    We have to sign this guy long term. The sooner the better. What would be the point for either side to wait? I am sure there are reasons but I am not a business person.Love his blog and its the first time I have read it. I also voiced "reason" but I want to see us win as many as possibleGo Nats

    I'm with sec3 and UNTERP. I like that Zim (and Espi and others) believe in themselves. After all, the game is 90 percent mental, and the other half is, um, I forget…can I get back to you on that one?

    I haven't read the article but it sounds like something interesting and right now it is great that writers have their own blog because you can know more about them.
