    That’s patently ridiculous, of course. But that’s the kind of nonsense you get when you start attacking guys for their alleged lack of hustle.

    A ton of guys had multi-homer games yesterday. Ryan Braun led the pack with his three. I’m sure that won’t bother anyone.

  10. Jayson Werth isn’t fond of his 2014 Topps baseball card

    Feb 28, 2014, 10:35 PM EDT

    Jayson Werth

    There have been some bad baseball cards in the past. Billy Ripken’s infamous “[Expletive] Face” bat. Jay Johnstone’s umbrella hat. Chuck Finley’s bat/guitar. But at least it was unmistakable who was in it. Jayson Werth isn’t the only visible National in his card in the Topps 2014 set, something he isn’t too happy about, according…

  11. Anthony Rendon, Danny Espinosa involved in “open competition” at second base for the Nationals

    Feb 16, 2014, 10:30 PM EDT

    Anthony Rendon

    Danny Espinosa didn’t exactly have a great 2013 season. Due largely to playing with a fractured wrist, Espinosa posted a .465 OPS, resulting in a stint on the disabled list and a demotion to Triple-A Syracuse. Anthony Rendon took over and was more or less average offensively with some hiccups on defense. Nonetheless, an upgrade.…

    We have a new member of the BSOHL club and his name is Danny Espinosa. During an appearance at NatsFest today, Espinosa told Chase Hughes of CSNWashington.com that he hired a personal trainer this offseason and feels stronger now than he’s ever felt. However, there was an interesting quote among the typical offseason hyperbole, as…

    Philadelphia Phillies v San Diego Padres

    Padres catcher Yasmani Grandal suffered a torn ACL on July 6 when Nationals second baseman Anthony Rendon slid into him on a play at home plate. The initial timetable for his return was set between 9-12 months and that appears to still be the case, according to Bill Center of the Union-Times. Grandal underwent surgery…

    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,…

  15. Nationals shopping infielder Danny Espinosa

    Danny Espinosa lost his starting second base job to Anthony Rendon this past season and now he could be on the move. According to Jeff Passan of Yahoo! Sports, the Nationals are listening to offers on the 26-year-old infielder. Espinosa attempted to play through wrist and shoulder injuries in 2013 while batting just .158/.193/.272 with…

    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…

    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.…

  18. Nationals “trying to trade” Danny Espinosa

    Aug 28, 2013, 2:44 PM EDT

    Danny Espinosa, Allen Craig

    Last week the Nationals indicated that they’re unlikely to call up Opening Day second baseman Danny Espinosa from the minors when rosters expand in September and now Bill Ladson of MLB.com reports that they’re “trying to trade” him. Espinosa hit .158 in 44 games for the Nationals to earn the demotion and is hitting .208…

  19. Nationals likely to leave Danny Espinosa in the minors

    Aug 22, 2013, 11:51 AM EDT

    Danny Espinosa AP

    Opening Day second baseman Danny Espinosa has become a forgotten man since the Nationals demoted him to Triple-A in mid-June and it sounds like he won’t be returning to the majors this season. Rosters expanding on September 1 would make it easy for the Nationals to call Espinosa back up, but manager Davey Johnson indicated…

  20. Bryce Harper makes first career start in leadoff spot

    Jul 14, 2013, 11:20 AM EDT

    Bryce Harper

    Bryce Harper has hit mostly third (51 times) and occasionally second (five times) this season, but manager Davey Johnson chose to mix things up today, moving him into the leadoff spot and dropping Denard Span down to seventh. Obviously, this has more to do with Span’s poor play and the struggles of the Nationals’ offense…

    Jul 9, 2013, 10:15 AM EDT

    grandal injury getty

    San Diego placed Yasmani Grandal on the 60-day disabled list even before getting the results of his MRI exam, so the Padres knew his right knee injury was bad. And sure enough, the catcher has been diagnosed with a torn ACL and is expected to miss 9-12 months following surgery. Grandal suffered the injury when…

    As first reported by MLB.com’s Corey Brock, the Padres have put catcher Yasmani Grandal on the 60-day disabled list with a right knee injury suffered Saturday when Anthony Rendon slid into his legs at home plate while trying to break up a double play.

    Philadelphia Phillies v San Diego Padres

    Padres catcher Yasmani Grandal needed assistance leaving the field of play at Nationals Park this afternoon after Anthony Rendon aggressively slid into him at home plate in the bottom of the third inning.

    Danny Espinosa AP

    Danny Espinosa was demoted to Triple-A last week after Anthony Rendon overtook him as the Nationals’ second baseman and now Adam Kilgore of the Washington Post reports that Espinosa is playing shortstop in the minors.

  25. Nationals activate Danny Espinosa from the DL … and send him to the minors

    Jun 19, 2013, 12:46 PM EDT

    Danny Espinosa AP

    Danny Espinosa is recovered enough from his wrist injury to be activated from the disabled list, but the second baseman was so bad before being shut down and so bad during his rehab assignment that the Nationals have decided to option him to Triple-A. Anthony Rendon hitting .338 filling in for Espinosa at second base…
