  1. Will the Nationals look to trade Michael Morse?

    Nov 20, 2012, 11:19 AM EST

    Michael Morse

    If the National succeed in re-signing free agent first baseman Adam LaRoche to a multi-year deal it could lead to a first base/corner outfield logjam in the not-so-distant future and Mark Zuckerman of CSNWashington.com has an interesting article wondering if that means Michael Morse could be on the trading block soon: Signed for one more…

    “There are people in and around the baseball world who give the knuckleball a bit of a knock,” MLB network analyst Dan Plesac said at the start of Wednesday night’s Cy Young Awards Show. Apparently those people are not well represented in the Baseball Writers Association of America. Mets right-hander R.A. Dickey was named the…

    Miguel Cabrera

    Miguel Cabrera is The Sporting News’ 2012 Player of the Year after being picked by 108 of the 203 players to vote. Mike Trout was second with 71 votes. No one else got more than five votes, and surprisingly enough, the player with five was Adrian Beltre. Likely NL MVP Buster Posey received just two…

  5. Nationals have all of the pieces for a longer run in 2013

    Oct 13, 2012, 2:04 AM EST

    Bryce Harper

    Yeah, that was a particularly gruesome way to lose. But that will only make the eventual payoff that much sweeter. Of course, the Nationals aren’t guaranteed anything going forward after losing in the NLDS to the Cardinals on Friday night. Shutting down Stephen Strasburg early was a move geared towards protecting the future, but the…

    The Nationals are pouring it on against the Cardinals in Game 5 of the NLDS. Bryce Harper led off the top of the bottom of the third inning with a solo home run. After entering tonight’s action 1-for-19 in the series, the 19-year-old phenom has a triple and a homer in his first two at-bats…

  10. Game 5 odds: Nationals are slight favorites, Yankees are big favorites

    gambling poster

    With a pair of winner-take-all games tonight I thought it would be interesting to examine the Las Vegas betting lines (for entertainment purposes only, of course). In the early game the Yankees are -200 favorites over the Orioles, which means you’d have to risk $200 to win $100 on New York. During the regular season…

  11. Looking ahead to two more Game 5s

    Washington Nationals' Jayson Werth rounds the bases after hitting a game-winning walk-off solo home run against the St. Louis Cardinals during Game 4 of their MLB NLDS baseball series in Washington

    Four best of five playoff series, four Game 5s. Life is good. We do it again two more times tonight, with the following action on tap: Orioles at Yankees, 5:07 PM ET, TBS:  It has been an offense-free zone for both teams, but it’s not surprising given the big names and big contracts that the Yankees…

    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…

  13. The Nats are on the brink, but let’s not blame the absence of Stephen Strasburg

    Ryan Zimmerman strikeout

    It wasn’t supposed to be like this. The Nationals had the best record in baseball and the best rotation heading into the postseason. But now, after consecutive awful outings by the pitching staff, the Cards lead the Nats 2-1 in this best of five series. They lost 8-0 today. Edwin Jackson was shaky out of…

  14. The Nats rotation is a cause for concern? But I thought that was impossible!

    Stephen Strasburg AP

    Thomas Boswell of the Washington Post on September 2: The four-man rotation, primed for October that I’ve described is Gio Gonzalez, Jordan Zimmermann, Edwin Jackson and Ross Detwiler. So all of the pundits who say the Nats can’t go to the Series or even win it, just because they won’t have Strasburg, can kiss my press pass.

    Tigers 5, Athletics 4: Don Kelly with the walkoff? Sure, why not? The A’s are in a deep hole now, down 2-0 in a best of five. How quickly the magic pixie dust from a late regular season run fades. Nationals 3, Cardinals 2: Gio Gonzalez walked the world, but the Nats rallied and Mike…

    Gio Gonzalez

    The Nationals have scratched Gio Gonzalez from his final regular season start tonight after clinching the NL East title last night. Washington is still fighting Cincinnati for the No. 1 seed, but manager Davey Johnson has decided that resting Gonzalez for a Game 1 start in the NLDS is more important. Tom Gorzelanny will take…
