    Oct 17, 2014, 2:14 PM EST

    Rafael Soriano

    Soriano was fantastic in the first half with 22 saves and a 0.97 ERA, but then he posted a 6.48 ERA in the second half while being stripped of closing duties.

  2. Nationals still in great position for 2015

    Oct 8, 2014, 1:28 AM EST

    Anthony Rendon

    Few changes are needed for the club with the NL’s best record in 2014.

  3. Matt Williams’ must-win strategy could use some work

    Division Series - Washington Nationals v San Francisco Giants - Game Four

    Yeah, but it’ll be all hands on deck for Game Never on Thursday.

    Facing elimination, the Nationals got a big start out of Doug Fister.

  5. Matt Williams on decision to pull Jordan Zimmermann in Game 2: “I kicked myself all night.”

    Matt Williams

    Matt Williams says he kicked himself “all night” for taking out Jordan Zimmermann with two outs in the ninth inning in Game 2 of the NLDS against the Giants on Saturday night. But was his decision really wrong?

  6. Thoughts from an 18-inning marathon

    Oct 5, 2014, 1:02 AM EST

    Jordan Zimmermann

    Jordan Zimmermann versus Drew Storen was not a gimme.

  7. Brandon Belt’s 18th-inning homer sends Giants up 2-0 in NLDS over the Nationals

    Oct 5, 2014, 12:02 AM EST

    Brandon Belt

    The Giants very nearly lost Game 2 of the NLDS against the Nationals, but rallied with two outs in the ninth inning to force a tie before finally emerging victorious after 18 innings thanks to a Brandon Belt solo home run.

  8. Giants tie NLDS Game 2 in the ninth, go-ahead run denied on reviewed play at the plate

    Yet more drama in the 2014 post-season: the Giants seemed destined to be victims of a Jordan Zimmermann shutout, but rallied with two outs in the ninth to send Game 2 of the NLDS into extra innings.

  9. The Nationals announce their playoff roster: Rafael Soriano is there

    It’s rather surprising to see Soriano there.

  11. Rafael Soriano making strides, but won’t reclaim closer’s role yet

    Sep 14, 2014, 9:25 PM EST

    Rafael Soriano

    Rafael Soriano has made some mechanical adjustments but the Nationals aren’t ready to hand him back the closer’s role yet.

  12. And That Happened: Sunday’s scores and highlights

    Sep 8, 2014, 6:47 AM EST

    Nelson Cruz

    A third of all of yesterday’s games were shutouts. Three dudes had two-homer games. Happy 2014.

  13. After yet another blown save, Rafael Soriano could be out as the Nats’ closer

    Sep 6, 2014, 8:56 AM EST

    Rafael Soriano

    Another blown save — this with the help of a homer from Ben Revere of all people — could cost the Nats’ closer his job.

  14. It’s been a trying year for Bryce Harper

    It’s been a trying year for Bryce Harper, but the Washington Nationals are in first place despite the struggling star.

  15. Nationals interested in Grant Balfour; would like to trade Drew Storen

    After a flubbed signing with the Orioles, free agent reliever Grant Balfour has recently drawn some interest from the Nationals, Ken Rosenthal reports on FOX Sports. The Nationals have a trio of relievers who could close, but as Rosenthal explains, they would prefer Rafael Soriano‘s $14 million option for 2015 not to vest and for…

  16. Nationals interested in free agent Grant Balfour

    The Orioles scrapped a two-year, $15 million pact with free agent right-hander Grant Balfour after a pre-signing physical revealed some previously-undiscovered issues in the reliever’s wrist and knee. But Balfour shouldn’t be out of work much longer. According to FOX Sports’ Ken Rosenthal, the 36-year-old native of Sydney, Australia is now drawing interest from the…

  17. Cubs interested in trading for Drew Storen or Tyler Clippard

    Dec 9, 2013, 6:29 PM EST

    The Cubs are one of a handful of clubs without a closer and it appears that they could turn to the trade market to fill the role. According to Gordon Wittenmyer of the Chicago Sun-Times, the Cubs are eying deals for Nationals relievers Drew Storen or Tyler Clippard among other possibilities. Adam Kilgore of the…

  18. Nationals acquire Doug Fister from Tigers

    Dec 2, 2013, 8:31 PM EST

    UPDATE: It’s done. The Nationals just announced that prospect left-hander Robbie Ray will also be sent to Detroit. So it’s Fister for Ray, Krol, and Lombardozzi. Interesting. Ray has really improved his stock as a prospect over the past year, but it’s surprising that the Nationals were able to acquire Fister without giving up a…

  19. Mariano Rivera to Drew Storen: “You don’t need my cutter”

    Nov 22, 2013, 8:15 PM EST

    Drew Storen Getty

    Adam Kilgore of the Washington Post put together an in-depth look at Drew Storen’s late-season turnaround. It’s a great read, chock full of charts and stats, but perhaps the most interesting part came in the opening paragraph. Drew Storen had the privilege of meeting Mariano Rivera. Knowing such an opportunity is fleeting, Storen asked Rivera…

  20. Adam Wainwright’s second Game 5 needs to go better than his first

    Oct 7, 2013, 7:33 PM EST

    Pittsburgh Pirates v St Louis Cardinals - Game One

    For the second year in a row, the Cardinals will turn to Adam Wainwright in a decisive NLDS Game 5. Last year, they escaped with a win, but it was with no help from their ace. Wainwright was tagged for six runs in 2 1/3 innings by the Nationals in Game 5 of the NLDS…

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

    Sep 24, 2013, 2:32 PM EST

    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…

  22. Bryce Harper out with the flu

    Aug 13, 2013, 5:44 PM EST

    bryce harper getty

    Bryce Harper is out of today’s game against the Giants due to flu-like symptoms. He came down with it yesterday. Scott Hairston will take his place. I highlight this only as a reminder of the Nationals’ discriminatory flu policies.  A couple of weeks ago Drew Storen had the flu and the Nats not only made…

  23. Nationals give extension and promotion to GM Mike Rizzo

    Aug 1, 2013, 10:03 PM EST

    Mike Rizzo

    The Nationals are in the midst of a disappointing follow-up campaign to their National League East title from last year, but general manager Mike Rizzo isn’t going anywhere. In fact, he’s getting promoted. The team announced this evening that Rizzo has signed a new long-term contract and has been promoted to the new title of…

  24. Tyler Clippard says the Nationals have handled Drew Storen “very poorly”

    Jul 27, 2013, 9:45 AM EST

    Drew Storen AP

    Drew Storen was demoted to Triple-A Syracuse after yesterday’s doubleheader against the Mets. It’s a dramatic fall from grace for someone who looked like one of the best young relievers in the game just two years ago. Coming off his implosion during the NLDS last October against the Cardinals, Storen owns a 5.95 ERA through…

  25. The Mets totally shellack the Nats in the first game of today’s double header

    Jul 26, 2013, 5:02 PM EST

    New York Mets v Washington Nationals - Game One

    I don’t guess one game of a doubleheader is usually that notable, but since it was the only day game today the Mets-Nats affair got my attention. And even if it hadn’t beforehand, man, it would have after it got going. The Mets demolished the Nationals 11-0. Jenrry Mejia got the start for New York…
