View Full Version : I talked to Zim and he’s

So if Colin Kaepernick and Eric Reid can’t get hired because they won’t commit to standing for the anthem Ryan Allen Jersey (http://www.patriotscheapstore.com/ryan-allen-jersey-cheap) , Wednesday’s uncompromising compromise fashioned by owners who fear a tweet or an base-inspiring rally remark removes the last impediment to their unemployment, right?

I mean, Kaepernick and Reid now know the rules. They have to “respect” the flag. If they refuse, there will be consequences.

So problem solved, right? The burning desire to win! should result in a land rush for their services. And when they sign, there will be no confusion or misunderstanding: No kneeling, no sitting Jarius Wright Jersey (http://www.vikingscheapstore.com/jarius-wright-jersey-cheap) , no fists in the air, no disrespect of any kind for the flag.

By solving one problem, the owners potentially have exacerbated another, because with the primary impediment to the unemployment of Kaepernick and Reid — the fear that they’ll still kneel — gone, there’s no reason to avoid them.

And of course we know that won’t be happening. Ultimately, this entire issue is not about patriotism or race or revenue but control. The owners, in crafting the anthem policy William Hayes Jersey (http://www.dolphinscheapstore.com/william-hayes-jersey-cheap) , had left a thermal exhaust port in the Death Star, and Kaepernick jammed a couple of photon torpedoes right into it. The owners resent that Kaepernick discovered the loophole, exploited it, and taught his peers to do the same.

Kaepernick, and to a lesser extent Reid, are the lingering reminders of the fact that the players outsmarted the owners on this one, and that when the owners tried to assert control by keeping them out of the league DeVante Parker Jersey (http://www.dolphinscheapstore.com/devante-parker-jersey-cheap) , they took action to advance their rights.

Keeping them out based on their refusal to commit to standing was convenient, because no one expected them to bow to the league’s will.聽No one expects the league to bow to the will of Kaepernick and Reid, which means that the owners would much rather write them a fat check than let them ever set foot on the stage that the owners own and, once again, control.

The Washington Nationals activated right-hander Stephen Strasburg from the 10-day disabled list and first baseman Ryan Zimmerman from the 60-day DL ahead of Friday’s series opener against the Atlanta Braves.

Strasburg (6-6, 3.46 ERA) started Friday against Washington’s NL East foe. The right-hander landed on the DL June 10 with right shoulder inflammation. In 13 starts, Strasburg has 95 strikeouts and 19 walks.

The 33-year-old Zimmerman last played on May 9 after suffering a strained right oblique. He was transferred to the 60-day disabled list on June 30. Zimmerman is hitting .217 with five homers and 16 RBIs.

Washington’s starting first baseman before the injury was not in the lineup against Atlanta. Manager Dave Martinez elected to start the lefty-swinging Matt Adams against Braves starter pitching Anibal Sanchez. Adams batted .342 in his last 11 games and has 15 home runs on the season.

”He is going to play Logan Paulsen Jersey (http://www.falconscheapstore.com/logan-paulsen-jersey-cheap) ,” Martinez said of Zimmerman. ”I mean Matt Adams, he’s pretty much killing right-handers right now. He deserves to play. I talked to Zim and he’s going to come off the bench today.”

Washington opened roster space by optioning pitchers Wander Suero and Trevor Gott to Triple-A Syracuse.

The Nationals, fresh off hosting the All-Star Game, are third in the NL East. Washington is 5 games behind Philadelphia and five back of Atlanta.
