      Most of us figured the Washington Nationals would be better in 2012, but few may have expected them to be as dominant as they have been this late in the season.  In addition to leading the NL East by a whopping 7.5 games over the Atlanta Braves, the Nats have also put together a […]

      The Washington Nationals have a plethora of talented starting pitchers.  Those that easily come to mind are Stephen Strasburg and Gio Gonzalez, but we also shouldn’t forget about Edwin Jackson.  And for those who have forgotten about him, he was kind enough to provide us all with a simple reminder via a terriffic performance […]

    Most broadcast booths around Major League Baseball contain at least one former ballplayer, because of the idea that they can provide insights into the game that us regular folks never could.

    The Washington Nationals have been quite the pleasant surprise this season, as they entered last night’s game against the Colorado Rockies with a 41-30 record, good enough for first in the entire National League.  Much of their success has been the result of some great pitching, but yesterday it was the Nationals’ bat that were […]

    Choosing the right walk-up song is as important to the sport of baseball as batting practice. Well, okay, it probably isn’t, but it is in some ways an interesting glimpse into a player’s personality. That might be the case with Washington Nationals wunderkind Bryce Harper, who recently changed his walk-up song to “Boyfriend” by fellow […]

    The Washington Nationals have been making a habit of dousing their nightly heroes with a cooler of Gatorade.  And while some have come to believe that these Gatorade showers are actually intended for Nationals sideline reporter Kristina Akra, last night’s was meant for one man, and one man only.  That man is Bryce Harper.
