WASHINGTON, D.C. — The Washington Nationals continued their strong start at Nationals Park, beating the Chicago White Sox, 5-2. Jordan Zimmermann pitched efficiently, giving up 2 runs over 7 innings. He threw only 90 pitches. He also escaped danger — comebackers and broken bats and was typically nonchalant about it. Another good performance for the [...]

Nationals owners may be waiting for the perfect pitch to sell park’s naming rights – The Post
Nationals Park was expected to be a temporary name for the home of the Washington Nationals, yet 5 years and 5 days after it opened, the name has become “permanent.” Wrong again, Stan Kasten.
Now, with the team much [...]

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Yesterday morning, I wondered if Teddy would finally win the President’s Race:
I’d like to think that clinching the division and heading to the playoffs is sufficient motivation to end this on the final day of the season. From my perspective, having him win in the playoffs takes attention away from the achievements [...]
WASHINGTON, D.C. — The 2012 Washington Nationals regular season came to a close with 5-1 beatdown of the rival Philadelphia Phillies. Behind Edwin Jackson’s six strikeouts over 6 2/3 innings of 1-run ball, the Nats won their 98th game of the season, exceeding everyone’s expectations. Home runs by Ryan Zimmerman, Tyler Moore and Michael [...]

Edwin Jackson had 10 strikeouts over 8 innings, most of them in the first three [...]
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. —On Saturday evening, I briefly talked to Washington Nationals radio play-by-play broadcaster Charlie Slowes during batting practice. Slowes strongly emphasized that my source in my blog post about his contract status was inaccurate. Slowes did not elaborate on the length of the contract, but it would have to run at least through 2013. [...]
