Comeback Falls Short as Nats Split Series in Baltimore

The Nats fell into a 4-0 hole early, but Gio Gonzalez rebounded to hold the Baltimore Orioles (50-41) down for the rest of his start, and the Washington Nationals (49-41) stranded nine as they missed opportunities and could not complete the comeback, falling 4-3. Gonzalez’s (L, 6-5) scoreless innings streak came to an end very […]

Federal Reserve: Nationals’ Minor League Options Limited For Shortstop Acquisition

On Tuesday, Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports reported that the Washington Nationals are “actively seeking to add a young shortstop” to replace Ian Desmond if he leaves via free agency after 2015. Rosenthal noted that Washington has a few major-league-ready prospects to offer in a trade, including catcher Sandy Leon, infielder/outfielder Zach Walters, and outfielder […]

Nationals Beat Orioles with Offense and Pitching, Retake First Place

The Washington Nationals (49-40) took advantage of the hitter-friendly Oriole Park at Camden Yards on Wednesday as they teed off with three home runs on the way to a 6-2 victory over the Baltimore Orioles (49-41).

Three-Homer Eleventh Helps O’s Sink Nats

For a team with one of baseball’s best bullpens, you would not expect the Washington Nationals to be 2-8 in extra-inning games. Well, you might if you saw how they pitched tonight. After strong starts from Chris Tillman and Stephen Strasburg led to extras, the Baltimore Orioles (49-40) crushed three home runs in a six-run […]

Covering The Nationals’ Biggest All-Star Snubs

I’ve gone on some fairly extensive rants about the MLB All-Star Game in the past. From allowing fan voting in a game that decides who gets home-field advantage during the World Series to managers selecting their own players rather than those who are most deserving, the game is a spectacle. That said, I’m still going […]

Nats Aim to Stay Hot Against Cubs

The Chicago Cubs (37-46) have been synonymous with losing and disappointment for years, and famously hold the longest title drought in professional sports: 106 years. It’s certainly easy to write the Cubs off, given their past, but the 2014 iteration of this cursed franchise will be no pushover for the Washington Nationals (46-38). The Cubs may […]

Adam LaRoche Joins MLB Players Honoring The 75th Anniversary of Lou Gehrig’s Farewell Speech

As we approach the 75th anniversary of Lou Gehrig’s farewell speech, in which he announced his retirement from baseball following his ALS diagnosis, MLB has put together this wonderful video. Gehrig starts it off, and then it intersperses a number of current major leaguers, each reading a few words from the iconic speech. Washington Nationals first baseman Adam LaRoche appears in the video, along side guys like Chris Davis, Albert Pujols, Joe Mauer, and Derek Jeter. This is worth watching, and if you’re like me, it’s worth having a tissue nearby when you do.

Strasburg Brilliant as Nats Demolish Rockies

In the two games since his return, Bryce Harper has not been transcendent at the plate, but he sure seems to have inspired his teammates. The Washington Nationals (45-38) controlled all phases of the game today, reaching base 17 times and giving up just one run, as Stephen Strasburg tossed an amazing 7.2 innings against […]

Nats Cruise Past Rockies in Harper’s Return

They say you don’t know what you’ve got until it’s gone. But tonight, the Washington Nationals realized just how much they had been missing without Bryce Harper. Impressive showings from thumb injury brothers Harper and Ryan Zimmerman, who figured prominently in a five-run sixth inning, led the Nats (44-38) to a huge 7-3 victory over […]

Top 16 Washington Nationals Vines for June 2014

May was a tough month for the Washington Nationals, both on the field and in the Vine world. June was much more fruitful, which you can see in month’s clips below. There was no shortage of defense for the team, and the infielders (and former infielders) really shined with the leather. Jayson Werth Stop Steal […]
