    Tampa Bay Rays' Price pitches against Boston Red Sox  during MLB American League Baseball game in Boston

    Rays 5, Red Sox 1: David Price tossed a one-run, five hit complete game, with a solo homer by Mike Napoli the only real blemish. He needed a mere 97 pitches. That’s what happens when you throw 72 strikes. The Sox and Rays are once again tied in the loss column. Dodgers 8, Blue Jays…

    Last night featured round one of what should be a compelling NL East battle between the Braves and Nationals. While the Nationals had the early advantage behind an excellent effort from Ross Detwiler, the Braves came roaring back in the late innings for an eventual 6-4 win in 10 innings.

    Washington Nationals Kurt Suzuki waits on the ball as Atlanta Braves Jason Heyward slides in safe in the third inning at their MLB game in Atlanta

    We’re only nine games into the season, but this weekend we have what you might consider to be the first big series of the season: Braves vs. Nationals at Nats Park. Atlanta is 8-1, their best start since winning 13 of 14 to begin the 1994 season. It’s hard to get a true gauge on them…

    Washington Nationals v St Louis Cardinals - Game Two

    Via James Wagner: The initial word on Christian Garcia’s visit with a Baltimore-based hand specialist is that the right-hander will need two more weeks of rest before he can resume throwing.

    Interesting PED discussion involving Nationals players in this Amanda Comak story at the Washington Times. They’re talking about the increased or altered PED penalties, noting some of the inherent problems in the system and how to best address them. Ian Desmond — admitting at the outset that he’s just sort of riffing — has a…

  8. Drew Storen was dealing with “excruciating” back pain during the NLDS

    Feb 22, 2013, 8:05 PM EST

    Drew Storen

    This is of little consolation to Nationals fans after the club lost in heartbreaking fashion during the NLDS against the Cardinals, but it turns out that Drew Storen wasn’t quite at 100 percent when the season came crashing down. In fact, CBS Sports’ Jon Heyman hears that Storen was pitching through “excruciating” back pain. It…

  9. Rafael Soriano will be the Nationals’ closer

    Jan 18, 2013, 2:50 PM EST

    Rafael Soriano Getty

    General manager Mike Rizzo left no doubt that Rafael Soriano will be the Nationals’ new closer after signing a two-year, $28 million deal, saying: “Suffice it to say, Raffy is here to pitch the ninth inning.” That means last year’s primary closer, Tyler Clippard, moves back into a setup role after saving 32 games, and…

    The Nationals and right-hander Drew Storen have avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $2.5 million contract. Storen’s agent, CAA Baseball, made the announcement on Twitter and added that the deal includes $1 million in performance bonuses. This is a pretty nice chunk of change for Storen, who was arbitration-eligible for the first time this…

    Jan 15, 2013, 2:27 PM EST

    Detroit Tigers v New York Yankees

    Well, this certainly came out of nowhere. Jeff Passan of Yahoo! Sports reports that free agent reliever Rafael Soriano has agreed to a two-year, $28 million contract with the Nationals, who lose their first-round draft pick in order to sign him. Soriano was one of three remaining free agents with draft pick compensation attached. All…

    Major League Baseball just announced something very cool: a charity auction to benefit the Stand Up to Cancer. The initiative was inspired by the numerous cases of public relations officials in the sport who have been diagnosed with cancer in recent years.

  13. Mike Rizzo wasn’t kidding about Davey Johnson winning a fishing tournament

    When talking to reporters yesterday about why Davey Johnson remains unsigned Nationals general manager Mike Rizzo noted how the manager was keeping himself busy: “I know he was in a fishing tournament.

    From the Associated Press, via NBCSports.com: Washington reliever Drew Storen, who failed to hold a ninth-inning lead against St. Louis in Game 5 of the NL division series, is among six extra players eligible for salary arbitration this winter under baseball’s new labor contract.

    Drew Storen AP

    As if giving up four runs and taking the loss in Game 5 of the NLDS against the Cardinals last night wasn’t bad enough, Nationals closer Drew Storen was faced with this after the game: Via Chase Hughes of NatsInsider.com, Storen summed it up pretty well in his post-game comments. “It’s part of the job.…

  16. Sorry Nats fans, but history is not written by the losers

    Oct 13, 2012, 8:53 AM EST

    Stephen Strasburg

    Yeah, it’s totally crazy to think that the team is better with one of the best pitchers in baseball.  In a postseason where anything can happen, and where nine of the ten teams who enter will not leave alive, it’s always the case that the best on-paper team wins it. The ones who lose never…

  17. Davey Johnson fiddles as D.C. burns

    Oct 13, 2012, 12:43 AM EST

    Davey Johnson

    No major league team had ever blown more than a four-run lead to lose an elimination game. No team until the Nationals managed to let a six-run lead slip away in a 9-7 loss to the Cardinals in Game 5 of the NLDS. One imagines Davey Johnson will put much of the blame for Friday’s…

    Incredible. Just incredible. Drew Storen took the mound in the top of the ninth with a 7-5 lead and needed just three outs for the Nationals to advance to the NLCS. But the Cardinals fought back by scoring four runs to take a 9-7 lead. Nationals Park was completely juiced going into the inning, but…

    The Nationals just added some valuable insurance in the bottom of the eighth inning, as Kurt Suzuki smacked an RBI single up the middle to push the score to 7-5 going into the top of the ninth. Jason Motte allowed back-to-back singles to Adam LaRoche and Michael Morse to begin the inning, but bounced back…

    We’re going to have yet another Game 5 in this already thrilling postseason. Jayson Werth clubbed a walkoff solo homer to lead off the bottom of the ninth inning this evening to power the Nationals to a 2-1 victory over the Cardinals in Game 4 of the NLDS. It forces a fifth and deciding game…

    Nationals Werth shakes beer and champagne out of his hair while celebrating with teammates after they defeated the Phillies in Washington

    I’ve always wondered what exactly goes into a team’s celebration after clinching a playoff spot and James Wagner of the Washington Post has some details on the Nationals’ post-division title bash Monday night: The revelry was organized and the cleanup spearheaded by longtime clubhouse manager Mike Wallace. For the celebration, he ordered 60 bottles of…

  24. Nationals make Tyler Clippard, Drew Storen co-closers

    Sep 21, 2012, 7:52 PM EST

    Drew Storen

    Why mess with what’s working? Tyler Clippard is 32-for-35 saving games since taking over as the Nationals’ closer in late May. However, manager Davey Johnson announced Friday that he’d have Clippard and Drew Storen share save opportunities going forward. “The fact is, I told [pitching coach Steve McCatty] that I have confidence in both of…

  25. The Nationals could still make a run without Stephen Strasburg

    Sep 8, 2012, 1:01 PM EST

    Nationals Getty

    The Nationals enter today’s action with the best record in baseball at 85-53. Yet with the attention given to the unique situation involving the shutdown of Stephen Strasburg, one would think they would be doomed without him. That’s just not the case. And it’s really a discredit to a well-balanced ballclub. Nationals starters are first…
