The Washington Nationals concluded a six-game intradivisional road trip 3-3. That’s not horrible at all, but because of the way this team, a season removed from 98 wins and steady domination, it seems like a lost opportunity . At 10-8, the are proceeding at a 90 win pace which is probably good enough for a [...]
After a long hiatus, one of my favorite features returns — the guest prognosticator! To review, I ask people I know who are fans of the upcoming Washington Nationals opponent to talk about their team. Typically, I try to get a broad overview of both the team, the fan culture and a prediction for the [...]
While a sweep is always preferable, the Washington Nationals still “beat the Mets, beat the Mets” twice in this weekend’s three game series. By the way, I can’t say enough how attractive the series looks, particularly when the Nats wear their home whites. Take a look during Michael Morse’s grand slam (first of the year [...]
WASHINGTON, D.C. — I bicycled to Nationals Park, met my dad, and then watched the Washington Nationals struggle mightily against New York Mets knuckleball pitcher R.A. Dickey, possibly the “the Most Interesting Man in Baseball” (The Post). In 7 1/3 innings, a mere handful of balls hit by D.C. (mostly in the 8th inning) reached [...]
WASHINGTON, D.C. — Generally speaking, I’m not a big fan of wearing another man’s name on your back. However, I’ll say this New York Mets fan is doing it right (with the exception of the headspoon jersey instead of blue pinstripes).
Chico Escuela (just audio) is and always will be my favorite Mets player. I think [...]
WASHINGTON, D.C. — Recently I started putting pennants up in my son’s room. My alma mater and my father’s alma mater are represented on one wall. On the opposite wall, I have started putting up D.C. team pennants, starting with the Washington Nationals and Capitals. I’ll eventually get a Redskins pennant for him [...]
Once again, the guest prognosticator series returns. Leading off the 2012 Washington Nationals season is blogging pioneer Eric McErlain of Off Wing Opinion. Among countless other things, he’s the subject matter expert for former Shea Stadium teams. You may recall last year’s Q&As about the Mets and Jets.
WFY: Are the “new” Mets uniforms (really the [...]
For the first time in 4 years, the Washington Nationals have won 70 games, may this never be a milestone again. They did it by beating the New York Mets 2-0 behind Brad Peacock’s debut start. The rookie righty threw 5 scoreless innings.
Nationals vs. Mets: Brad Peacock earns win in his first major league start [...]
Last night in Flushing Meadows, the Washington Nationals came back to beat the New York Mets to win their 69th game of the 2011 season. Some numbers to ponder:
The Nats likely have 15 more games left in the season (a Los Angeles Dodgers rainout is unlikely to be played) and would have to win 12 [...]
Nats: Walking Roger Bernadina to get to Ryan Zimmerman with the bases loaded in the 9th?! BRILLIANT, Mets!
Like Charles Krauthammer said, “you go for the moments.”
The Washington Nationals just snatched victory from the jaws of defeat which they previously snatched from the jaws of victory. Who were they playing? The New York Mets of course!
Entering the 9th, the Nats were down 7-6 to the Mets with 8-9-1 in the batting order coming [...]
