    Bryce Harper Injures Himself Running Face First Into the Outfield Wall (Video)

    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 […]

    Stat Line of the Night — 4/25/2013 — Gio Gonzalez

    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 […]

    Stat Line Of The Night — 9/4/12 — Adam LaRoche

      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 […]

    Stat Line Of The Night — 8/30/12 — Edwin Jackson

      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 […]

  • Stat Line Of The Night — 7/25/12 — Stephen Strasburg

    Stat Line Of The Night — 7/25/12 — Stephen Strasburg

    Throughout the entire season, Washington Nationals manager Davey Johnson has sworn to shut down pitching phenom Stephen Strasburg once he reaches his 160-inning limit.  But with the Nats sitting atop the NL East and looking primed for a playoff birth, shutting Strasburg down won’t be an easy move to go through with, especially when the […]

    Stat Line Of The Night — 6/26/12 — Adam LaRoche

    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 […]
