    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 […]

    Before the 2013 MLB season started, lots of experts were saying the Washington Nationals were the best team in baseball, and that they would win the National League East in a cakewalk. Unfortunately, real life has a way of playing havoc with predictions. The Nats have had a pretty rough year, relatively speaking. After getting […]

    After making the post-season and winning just their second division title in franchise history one year earlier, the Washington Nationals entered the 2013 MLB season with the highest of expectations.  However, they have failed to live up to those expectations thus far, as they entered Sunday’s action two games under .500 and eight games back […]

    Warning tracks on baseball fields are intended to warn outfielders chasing down fly balls that they are approaching the outfield wall.  Whether or not they actually work is up for debate, but I can almost certainly state that Bryce Harper would argue against their effectiveness. With the Washington Nationals leading the Los Angeles Dodgers by a score […]

    Stat Line of the Night — 5/1/2013 — Jordan Zimmerman

    Shutting down the Atlanta Braves’ potent line-up is no easy task, but don’t tell that to Washington Nationals pitcher, Jordan Zimmermann.  He was able to do just that during last night’s game at Turner Field, and he actually made it look quite easy. Zimmermann would allow a single in the first inning and a double […]

    After putting together a 21-8 record and a 2.89 ERA in 2012, Gio Gonzalez stumbled out of the gate in his second year with the Washington Nationals.  He has failed to last more than six innings in any of his first four starts in 2013, and he entered last night’s contest with a 1-1 record […]

      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 […]

    Jayson Werth Makes A Nice Barehanded Catch (Video)

    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. In reality, of course, they mostly just complain about how today’s players just don’t play the game “the right way.” And by “the right […]
