WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) Ryan Zimmerman finds it odd that so many teams now feel the need to announce they are trying to win.
"I try and win every day," the veteran Washington Nationals first baseman said Sunday. "I think that's kind of the point of sports. That's kind of what the whole basis about professional sports is - you try and win. When you have teams actively saying that we're going to go into this free agent market in a win-now mode, I don't know that you should have to state that it's a win-now mode, but I guess that's where we're at. I think that's troubling,"
Zimmerman made the comments while sitting at his locker, a few feet from where one of the offseason's two premier free agents once dressed.
