We talk more about the Nats' managerial position now that it seems like the talk about Cal Ripken, Jr.'s interest in the job is more than just speculation. Then, we dig into our end-of-season superlatives, like MVP, LVP, and many best and worst categories, and we read many of your responses to those questions.
The DC-Internet Baseball Writers Association released its post-season accolades Monday afternoon. After much deliberation, I've included my votes for the awards followed by the overall results from my fellow writers and bloggers. Stay tuned to our Twitter feeds (@
At the beginning of every season, Dave Nichols of District Sports Page puts out the DC Internet Baseball Writers Association survey for current and former Nats bloggers to make predictions for the upcoming season. Well, it's time for me to remain accountable to you, fine readers, on how I did with my projections. You can […]
It's the first episode of the offseason, so we talk about the end of the Nats season. Then, we discuss the Rookies of the Year, Cy Youngs, MVPs, and Managers of the Year from both leagues. It wouldn't be a podcast if we didn't discuss the Nats managerial position, and then Joe and Craig defend […]
The Nationals 2013 season may have come to a close, and it's never too early to start discussing offseason moves. And Baseball America brought up a fascinating one this morning. Ben Badler of BA believes that the Nats are among the top five teams who could sign Jose Abreu this offseason. At this point, you […]
It was a trying season for Nats fans as many expected 2012 to simply be a sign of what was to come in 2013. Unfortunately, a host of factors, including injuries, caused the Nationals season to end today. There will be no baseball in October in our Nation's Capital. But despite this disappointment, there are […]
Even though it was Pete Kozma's bad throw that allowed Ryan Zimmerman to break up Michael Wacha's no-hitter last night, it appears the curse of Game 5 is still alive. The Cardinals wore down Jordan Zimmermann in his final start of the season, denying him a chance at 20 wins, and beat the Nationals (83-76) […]
At the beginning of the season, it looked like this day might never come. Two weeks after the All-Star break, it looked it would come all too soon. But now the speculation is done, and the fateful day is here. Rookie sensation Tanner Roark (L, 7-1) was not as sensational tonight, giving up four runs […]
Tonight’s game was a lot like riding a mechanical bull: after you’re in a good position, hold on for dear life. An eventful first inning saw the Nats lead 3-1, but a hit-prone Gio Gonzalez and bullpen kept the game interesting until the very end, as the Nats (82-71) held on to win, 3-2. With […]
We talk about the Navy Yard shooting and its effect on the Nats on Monday. Then, we talk about the doubleheader and the Nats extended streak of really good baseball. Finally, we further evaluate their playoff hopes.
Given how much the Braves have beaten up on the Nats this season, today was a welcome respite with a pair of feel-good wins. Tanner Roark locked down the Braves, allowing only two hits in seven innings, and the offense came alive with three runs in the eighth as the Nats (81-70) locked down the […]
After an emotional Monday following a shooting at the Navy Yard in Washington, DC, the game between the Nationals and Braves scheduled for that evening was cancelled. Action between those two teams got underway in game one of a doubleheader on Tuesday afternoon. It was a game of highs, lows, and one of the most […]
This morning, at least 12 lives were lost in the Washington Navy Yard near Nationals Park in a shooting incident. Many details are unknown about the circumstances around the shooting, but law enforcement officials are still searching for two individuals who may have been involved in the incident at the time of this post. The […]
All season, I've had the opportunity to talk to Michael Cerio, host of From The Phans on CBS Radio in Philadelphia, prior to every series between the Nationals and Phillies. We had our last talk of the season yesterday afternoon, which is available here. My segment is the last one of the show, so you'll […]
It has certainly been a long and frustrating season for the Washington Nationals. Injuries, underperforming offense, and bullpen inconsistency have all led the Nats to where they are now: six games back of the NL Wild Card with just 18 games left and a division title that is out of reach. Of course, the team […]
