    This Washington Nationals Beard Is Glorious (Pics)

    As you probably know, the hipster invented the beard back in 2005. And since then, like all things the hipster knows and loves ironically—like skinny jeans, or Arcade Fire—the beard has gone mainstream and become, for the most part, totally uncool. There are a few exceptions, though. Every once in a while we’ll encounter somebody […]

    Jayson Werth Dances His Way Around Tag at Second Base (Video)

    When you think of Jayson Werth, you picture a big burly guy with a bushy beard who crushes extra base hits. You do not picture a guy with nimble feet who can tip-toe around a tag at second base. But that’s exactly what Werth did yesterday against the Houston Astros. In the bottom of the […]

    Bryce Harper Sent a Ball Into Orbit vs. the Marlins (Video)

    Bryce Harper entered Wednesday in the midst of an awful slump, hitting just .160 with zero home runs and zero RBIs in 17 at bats on the season… Then he did this: After being reviewed, Harper’s three-run homer would stand, bringing the Nats to within two runs of the Miami Marlins.

    With less than two weeks remaining in the regular season and their playoff hopes quickly fading, losing is no longer an option for the Washington Nationals.  And after winning their first game of a doubleheader against the Atlanta Braves, Tanner Roark made sure that the Nats completed the sweep with a lights-out effort on the […]

    Stat Line of the Night — 9/11/2013 — Dan Haren

    The Washington National’ playoff hopes may be pretty much dead, but don’t tell them that.  They entered last night with a four-game winning streak in tact and they seem to be playing their best baseball of 2013 during the final month of the season. Their winning ways continued on Wednesday in New York, as the […]

    Stat Line of the Night — 8/11/2013 — Steven Strasburg

    One year after putting together a 15-6 record on the mound, wins have not been easy to come by for Washington Nationals starting pitcher Steven Strasburg.  Despite posting a solid 3.01 ERA through his first 22 starts of the season, the 25-year-old righty was the not-so-proud owner of a 5-9 record.  He entered Sunday in […]

    With a .278 ERA, 15 home runs and 49 RBIs on the season, Ian Desmond has earned himself a spot on the ballot for the final roster position on the National League All-Star team; however, things haven’t been going well for the Nats’ shortstop as of late, as he was without a hit in two […]
