Dusty Baker Entering A Capitol Mess In Nationals

To say 2015 was a mess for the Washington Nationals is as big an understatement as saying Caddyshack 2 was not as good as the original. When the season began the only question for the Nats was, how many games could this team win. There was never any doubt after adding Max Scherzer to the already formidable rotation, that the Nats were going to win the NL East. Of course,

Washington Nationals: Nats Pull Another Late-Season “Choke Job”

If you reach back to the recesses of your mind all the way back to say, March of this year, and ask who was going to win the NL East, I would venture to say 100% of the people in the know would have said the Nationals. The only questions were, how many games were they going to win and how early would they clinch the division? Somehow this superteam

MLB: Bryce Harper Needs To Win The N.L. Triple Crown

The Triple Crown is the most prestigious single season accolade a ball player can obtain. The honor is so rare that it has only been accomplished 17 times, the last coming in 2012 when Miguel Cabrera led the A.L. in batting average, home runs and RBI's. Although, the National League hasn't seen a Triple Crown winner since 1937, it's extremely plausible that we see one this season. Bryce Harper is

MLB: Washington Nationals/Montreal Expos All-Time All-Star Team

For 36 years, many All-Stars showcased their talents north of the border – even though there was no championship ring to show for it.

This is the starting lineup of those who best represented either the Montreal Expos or Washington Nationals at All-Star break along with the seasons in which they were most qualified. C:

Sports: Nats Clinch NL’s Best Record, Home-Field Advantage In Playoffs

http://gty.im/455562682   For most teams, playing at home has its advantages, especially when it comes to the playoffs. That couldn’t be truer for this year’s Washington Nationals. The Nats clinched home-field advantage throughout the National League playoffs with their afternoon victory over the Miami Marlins on Friday and with the way they’ve been at home this season, the significance of owning the NL’s best record cannot be understated. Only four

Washington Nationals: Sabermetrics Not Fans Of CF Denard Span’s Defense

http://gty.im/455744452 2 Washington Nationals center-fielder Denard Span, to some, is considered one of the better defensive outfielders in the majors today. His ability to seemingly get to every fly ball has launched its own hashtag: #Spanning. Nationals analyst F.P. Santangelo has said constantly to “give that man [Span] a Gold Glove.” As much as he is visibly pleasing to watch in the outfield, sabermetrics and more detailed statistics indicate that

MLB: Nationals, Orioles Ready To Celebrate Division Titles

    When the Washington Nationals started their third season in the nation’s capital in 2007, baseball wasn’t an exciting thing to talk about. The Nationals already had two mediocre seasons under their belt after bringing baseball back to Washington, while the Baltimore Orioles were an afterthought in baseball circles. Now, just a decade later, both the Nats and O’s have a chance to win their respective divisions on the

MLB : Uninspired Mets Fans and Organization Drop The Ball on 9/11 Anniversary

  The world observed the 13th anniversary of the September 11th terrorist attacks on Thursday with countless memorials and the yearly ceremony at Ground Zero. At Citi Field, the two major affected cities, Washington D.C. And New York, met in a series-opening game of America's pastime.  Unfortunately, the Mets' fans (and partially, the organization) dropped the ball on what is now called Patriots' Day, as an uninspiring crowd showed up
