    Minnesota Twins v Cleveland Indians

    CBS Sports’ Jon Heyman reports that the Brewers are “making a push” to sign free agent Mark Reynolds, who is said to be “leaning toward” signing with them. Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports also hears that a deal is close. It was reported earlier this week that the Nationals had expressed interest in Reynolds, but…

  8. Nationals interested in Mark Reynolds

    Jan 14, 2014, 10:47 AM EDT

    Minnesota Twins v Cleveland Indians

    Washington paid a premium to add Nate McLouth as a fourth outfielder and now Bill Ladson of MLB.com reports that the Nationals are trying to beef up their bench even further with Mark Reynolds. According to Ladson they’ve “expressed interest” in Reynolds, who split last season between the Indians and Yankees while hitting .220 with…

    Adam Kilgore of the Washington Post has the story: Let there be no confusion: [Ryan] Zimmerman will remain the Nationals’ everyday third baseman in 2014. But, Zimmerman confirmed Tuesday afternoon that the Nationals’ plans for him next season include spot duty at first base. Zimmerman will take some grounders at first base during spring training,…

    The Nationals must have received the group discount. Mark Zuckerman of CSNWashington.com passes along word that Stephen Strasburg, Bryce Harper, and Adam LaRoche all underwent surgery in recent days. Fortunately for the Nationals, all of them appear to be minor. Strasburg had surgery yesterday to remove bone chips from his right elbow. The 25-year-old is…

  11. Projecting the 2013 Gold Glove winners

    Oct 25, 2013, 1:54 PM EDT

    Manny Machado

    Let’s go down the list: AL, catcher: Matt Wieters, Joe Mauer, Salvador Perez Mauer is still the AL’s best defensive catcher, but he played a mere 660 innings behind the plate this year, compared to 1,200 for Wieters and 1,115 for Perez. Wieters has won the last two, so he’s the favorite here. Still, I…

  12. Michael Wacha loses no-hitter with one out to go

    Sep 24, 2013, 9:55 PM EDT

    michael wacha getty

    We’re on the verge of history at Busch Stadium. Making good use of his vicious changeup and high-90s fastball, Cardinals rookie right-hander Michael Wacha has no-hit the visiting Washington Nationals through the top of the seventh inning. The Cardinals will carry a 2-0 lead into the bottom of the frame. Wacha has yielded just two…

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

    Sep 24, 2013, 2:32 PM EDT

    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…

  14. Bizarro World: Craig Kimbrel blows a save, Andrelton Simmons commits a game-ending error.

    Unicorn

    Well that’s something one doesn’t expect to see every day. The Nationals sprinted out to a 3-0 lead in the first game of today’s doubleheader against the Braves. Then Mike Minor settled down and didn’t allow another run through the sixth. The Braves scored runs in the sixth and seventh to bring it to 3-2.…

  15. And That Happened: Thursday’s scores and highlights

    Sep 13, 2013, 7:23 AM EDT

    Cleveland Indians v Chicago White Sox

    Indians 14, White Sox 3: Ryan Raburn went 3 for 3 with a homer and five RBI. The Tribe put up a seven spot in the fifth inning in which the first nine batters who came to the plate reached. They keep pace with the Rays, who also won, and remain one and a half games…

  16. Adam LaRoche can’t take BP because he’s losing too much weight

    Sep 5, 2013, 1:40 PM EDT

    Adam LaRoche

    We just learned that Ben Revere is bootylicious. Seems that Adam LaRoche is anti-bootylicious. Like, he literally can’t keep weight on and now that’s keeping him from taking batting practice: Part of the issue, however, has been the weight loss caused by the medicine he takes to combat ADD (attention deficit disorder). LaRoche is so desperate…

  17. Nationals bench coach Randy Knorr questions Bryce Harper’s hustle

    Aug 31, 2013, 10:49 AM EDT

    Bryce Harper AP

    Bryce Harper‘s hustle (or lack thereof) was the big topic of conversation following the Nationals’ 3-2 loss to the Mets last night at Nationals Park. With two runners on and two out in the bottom of the eighth inning, Harper hit a weak grounder to Mets second baseman Daniel Murphy. Assuming that he would be…

  18. Zack Greinke is hitting .340 (oh, and he also took a shutout into the ninth inning)

    Aug 27, 2013, 10:15 AM EDT

    Chicago Cubs v Los Angeles Dodgers

    Not only did Zack Greinke take a shutout into the ninth inning against the Cubs last night to improve to 13-3 with a 2.86 ERA, he also went 1-for-2 with an RBI single and a walk at the plate to continue a remarkable season offensively. Greinke is hitting .340 with a .426 on-base percentage in…

    Rockies 4, Marlins 3: The Rockies won this game but the Marlins took the 1993 Expansion Cup for this season, closing out the year with a 4-3 record against Colorado. What — you don’t keep track of the 1993 Expansion Cup? There’s a great ceremony at the end of the series each year in which either…

    Lost in the Nationals’ eventual 8-7 win Saturday against the Braves was another big offensive performance from Atlanta’s Jason Heyward. Heyward, 24, hit a 420-foot solo home run to right-center field in the bottom of the first inning and then tied the game at 7-7 with a 415-foot two-run shot off closer Rafael Soriano in…

  22. Nationals fire hitting coach Rick Eckstein

    Jul 22, 2013, 3:15 PM EDT

    rick-eckstein-nationals

    Hitting coach Rick Eckstein is the first person to take the fall for Washington being one of the most disappointing teams in baseball this season, as the Nationals announced that he’s been fired and minor-league hitting coordinator Rick Schu will replace him. After scoring the fifth-most runs in the league last season the Nationals kept…

  23. Stephen Strasburg strikes out nine in a dominating performance

    Jun 22, 2013, 9:57 AM EDT

    Colorado Rockies v Washington Nationals

    Now witness the firepower of this fully ARMED and OPERATIONAL Stephen Strasburg! The Nats’ ace was a bit rusty in his first start back from the disabled list, but there was no rust to be seen last night against the Rockies. He allowed one run in seven innings, giving up five hits walking no one and striking out…

    New York Mets v Atlanta Braves

    Mets 4, Braves 3: Good news: two solo homers for David Wright and five scoreless innings from the bullpen. Bad news: The reason the pen was needed for five innings is that Jon Neise had to leave the game with shoulder problems. Braves news: ugh, you guys have looked positively crappy of late. Tigers 4,…

  25. Adam LaRoche: Nationals have “played like crap”

    Jun 2, 2013, 9:45 PM EDT

    Adam LaRoche

    The Nationals dropped this afternoon’s affair with the Braves 6-3, falling below .500 at 28-29 in what has been a disappointing season. A popular pre-season World Series pick, the Nationals have dealt with injuries to key players and poor performance from others. First baseman Adam LaRoche wasn’t going to mince words when he spoke to…
