A co-worker asked me this morning about the Washington Nationals. He’s a casual fan going to the Sunday game against the Los Angeles Dodgers, whom he expected to be a better opponent. I suggested that the Dodgers were better than their record now that Yasiel Puig was on the team. I also suggested that the [...]
There has been a lot of discussion and pixels generated over Washington Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper’s collision into the right field wall the other night. All of this talk about toughness and such (I’m guilty of it too) has overshadowed the the actual story — a fairly inexperienced outfielder took a bad route on [...]
Zimmermann, Nats beat Dodgers 6-2; Harper runs into a wall and is listed as day-to-day, but aren’t we all?
After another brutal game 7 loss for the Washington Capitals (more on that later) what D.C. fans absolutely did not need was Washington Nationals OF Bryce Harper running into a wall.
That’s from SB Nation: Bryce Harper injury: Nationals outfielder hurt after colliding with wall.
Probably not a good idea in a 6-0 game to go for [...]

Last night’s Washington Nationals 4-1 win over the Los Angeles Dodgers clinched an appearance in the NL Wild Card at minimum, but it is really a play-in-game in the new format. I can’t get excited yet. The Cincinnati Reds clinched the play-in appearance earlier in the day too. If neither [...]

I go away for a family wedding (and sun, surf, food & drink, etc.) on the Grand Strand (more to come) and it gets a little exciting in Natstown. Or at least on Washington Nationals first western road trip of the season. I thought the timing of my spring break and that trip were ideal, [...]
WASHINGTON, D.C. — The rain that had people tubing down US 29/50 in Fairfax was playing havoc with the Washington Nationals. Two days earlier, they somehow got Stephen Strasburg’s start in against the Los Angeles Dodgers, but lost after a rain delay. The previous day’s game was postponed until yesterday as part of a doubleheader. [...]
Once again, a Washington Nationals weekday afternoon game is in danger of being rained out. This happened back in May when the Pittsburgh Pirates were in town. Like that day in May, there are $2 tickets available for the game. If the game gets rained out, I you can exchange today’s ticket for a future [...]
After a day of hand-wringing over the weather, the ominous skies above Nationals Park remained threatened rain, but held off long enough for Stephen Strasburg to make his long-awaited return to the Washington Nationals. The Nats fans who braved the elements and uncertainty were rewarded with 5 innings of shutout baseball from Strasburg who pitched [...]
CHARLES KRAUTHAMMER: The best show in town – The Post
…I can finally devote a summer column to the finest efflorescence of that season this city has to offer: the Washington Nationals.
They are a baseball team. Not yet very good, mind you, but it matters not. When you live in a town with a great team, [...]
