  1. Twins, Nationals fail to complete Denard Span-for-Drew Storen swap

    Jul 31, 2011, 4:20 PM EDT

    Drew Storen

    4:20 p.m. EDT update: We’re a bit late on things because WordPress, of all of the possible times to crash, picked 3:58 p.m. on deadline day.  Storen, anyway, is in the game against the Mets, so obviously nothing got done with the Twins. /// FOXSports.com’s Ken Rosenthal said on MLB Network that he believes the…

  2. The Nats and Twins are still talking about a Denard Span-Drew Storen trade

    Jul 29, 2011, 11:00 AM EDT

    Denard Span

    Last year the Nationals snookered the Twins into giving up a stud catching prospect for the most replaceable of all commodities, the Proven Closer.  But Matt-Capps for Wilson Ramos was one of those once-in-a-lifetime brain farts, right?  Surely Bill Smith and the Twins aren’t going to do something like that again, right? Maybe!  While it…

  3. Report: Nationals “not willing” to trade Drew Storen to Twins for Denard Span

    Jul 28, 2011, 2:14 PM EDT

    Drew Storen

    Earlier this week there were several reports about the Nationals pursuing Twins center fielder Denard Span and yesterday Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com wrote that they might even be willing to give up closer Drew Storen to get something done. Not so fast, according to Bill Ladson of MLB.com, who quotes “a baseball source” as saying…

  4. Rosenthal: Nationals may offer Drew Storen for Twins’ Denard Span

    Jul 27, 2011, 5:45 PM EDT

    Drew Storen

    It worked last year, as the Nationals picked up their long-term catcher by sending their closer to the Twins.  Now they could make a similar move, only grabbing a center fielder instead, if FOXSports.com’s Ken Rosenthal is correct. According to Rosenthal, Drew Storen may be in play in the trade talks between the Nationals and…

  5. Twins open to trading Denard Span, not Josh Willingham

    Jun 29, 2012, 1:02 PM EDT

    Josh Willingham

    The Twins lost 99 games last year. This year, they’re on pace to lose 96. Their minor league system boasts one potential star in Miguel Sano but is otherwise probably among the weakest in the game. Maybe cashing in the 33-year-old outfielder with a history of back problems wouldn’t be such a bad idea? According…

  6. UPDATE: chances of a Denard Span deal to the Nats are less than 50-50

    UPDATE: ESPN’s Tim Kurkjian is now reporting that the chances of Storen/Span deal less than 50-50 and that the Nationals may pivot to B.J. Upton in their search for a center fielder.  Are the Nats really that afraid to give up Drew Storen?  Seems kind of nutso to me, but then again, I just work…

  7. Nationals making progress in talks for Denard Span

    Jul 30, 2011, 4:36 PM EDT

    Oakland Athletics v Minnesota Twins

    UPDATE: ESPN’s Jayson Stark reports that the Nationals are “making headway” with the Twins in trade talks for center fielder Denard Span. The Twins are insisting that Drew Storen is included in the deal along with a second player. From Adam Kilgore’s report earlier in the day, we can assume that might mean Roger Bernadina. Mercy.…

  8. Denard Span hoping to return from concussion this weekend

    Jul 29, 2011, 5:17 PM EDT

    Denard Span

    As trade rumors continue to swirl around him, Twins center fielder Denard Span is finally on the verge of returning from the concussion that has sidelined him for the past two months. Span, who’s been rehabbing at Triple-A for the past two weeks while taking multiple days off, told Joe Christensen of the Minneapolis Star…

  9. Tweet of the Day: Denard Span addresses trade rumor, LOLs

    Jul 29, 2011, 1:50 PM EDT

    Rumors about the Nationals talking to the Twins about Denard Span have been swirling all week, so the center fielder took a break from his rehab assignment at Triple-A to tweet about the speculation:

  10. No, the Strasburg shutdown in 2012 is not why the Nats missed the playoffs in 2013

    The worst part of narrative-driven sports journalism is that it usually results in those who engage in it bending the facts to fit the narrative rather than identifying a narrative that springs logically from those facts. As an example I give you John Feinstein’s column on the Nats. Which came out today, but which you…

  11. UPDATE: Jayson Werth suffers broken left wrist

    May 6, 2012, 11:30 PM EDT

    Jayson Werth

    11:30 p.m. EDT update: It was announced after the game Sunday that Werth had suffered a broken left wrist. He’ll see a specialist on Monday as the Nats go about determining whether he has any ligament damage. If it’s a simple break, then 6-8 weeks is probably the best-case scenario. If there’s more damage, then…

  12. Report: Phillies never had agreement with Ryan Madson; Nationals interested?

    Nov 9, 2011, 4:22 PM EDT

    Chicago Cubs v Philadelphia Phillies

    This Ryan Madson situation is getting weird. Last night Madson was said to be signing a four-year, $44 million deal with the Phillies, but this morning several reports said the deal was on hold because ownership had yet to sign off and now Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com says the two sides never actually had an…

  13. Some initial post-trade deadline thoughts

    Jul 31, 2011, 5:18 PM EDT

    Wandy Rodriguez

    - I was stunned that the Yankees didn’t make so much as a minor deal, but they definitely stand out as obvious candidates to be busy in August.  Just how busy could hinge on Rafael Soriano‘s performance.  Still, whether it’s Wandy Rodriguez — who could clear waivers and again become a possibility to be dealt as soon as Wednesday…

  14. Daily Dose: Verlander wins seventh straight

    Jun 11, 2009, 1:32 AM EDT

    Justin Verlander took matters into his own hands Wednesday with Joel Zumaya and Fernando Rodney both unavailable after working three straight days, holding the White Sox to one run in a complete-game win. Jim Thome’s solo homer was the only damage, as Verlander struck out nine and walked one while topping 110 pitches for the…
