    Jul 24, 2013, 7:07 AM EDT

    Cleveland Indians v Seattle Mariners

    Mariners 4, Indians 3: The M’s just keep on winning. That’s eight in a row, with this one ending interestingly. The Indians had runners on the corners with no one out in the ninth. Then Drew Stubbs got caught in a rundown he probably shouldn’t have gotten caught in between third and home, ending the…

    Looking for another weapon to combat left-handed pitchers, the Nationals picked up Scott Hairston from the Cubs on Sunday night, a source told FOXSports.com’s Ken Rosenthal.

    As expected the Nationals have activated Bryce Harper from the disabled list after the 20-year-old outfielder missed the past 31 games with a knee injury stemming from his May 13 collision with the wall at Dodger Stadium.

  9. Jayson Werth has a theory on why the Nats aren’t winning this year

    Jun 21, 2013, 2:00 PM EDT

    Jayson Werth

    Hitting? Pitching? Defense? Injuries? Nah. It all came too easily last season, he tells Jayson Stark of ESPN: “Last year, we cruised,” right fielder Jayson Werth found himself saying this week, reflectively. “You don’t learn how to win that way. So when you get into those big games in September and in the playoffs, when you’ve led…

    Jun 20, 2013, 8:23 AM EDT

    Washington Nationals v Philadelphia Phillies

    Jonathan Papelbon blew a 2-1 lead in the ninth in yesterday’s Phillies-Nationals game. And he did take responsibility for not making the right pitches to Jayson Werth who singled in the tying run. But he also called out his entire team and, it seems, coaching staff, for playing poor fundamental baseball. Jim Salisbury has the…

    May 10, 2013, 6:21 PM EDT

    from @MaxBatBaseball

    It seems Louisville Slugger has a monopoly on the pink labels for Mother’s Day bats permitted by MLB.

    Apr 27, 2013, 8:57 AM EDT

    Jordan Zimmermann AP

    It was easy to sense a tiny bit of panic in the air after the Nationals dropped four in a row this week to fall under .500 for the first time since 2011. However, the past two games can put any of that silliness to bed. After Gio Gonzalez limited the Reds to a solo…
