    Don’t sleep on the Nationals. Aided by seven scoreless innings from Gio Gonzalez and home runs from Jayson Werth, Bryce Harper, and Ian Desmond, the Nationals wrapped up a three-game sweep of the Marlins tonight with a 9-0 victory at Nationals Park.

    From Adam Kilgore of the Washington Post comes word that Nationals outfielder Jayson Werth is in the starting lineup for Sunday afternoon’s series finale against the Royals despite being diagnosed on Saturday with an infection in his right foot. The exact type and extent of the infection is unclear, but Werth has likely been prescribed…

    All that speculation about how the Nationals didn’t necessarily even want David DeJesus when they claimed him off waivers and then acquired him from the Cubs last week? Looks pretty spot, as they’ve now traded him to the Rays. That means DeJesus’ stint with Washington lasted all of three games and four plate appearances, which…

    This is about the Philadelphia Phillies, but let’s start with the Chiefs. I have always been fascinated by the Kansas City Chiefs of the 1970s. You probably know that the Chiefs of the late 1960s and early 1970s were among the best teams in football. They played in Super Bowl I, and they won Super…

    Milwaukee Brewers v Chicago Cubs

    Mark Zuckerman of CSNWashington.com reports that the Nationals have acquired outfielder David DeJesus from the Cubs for a player to be named later. Washington is 60-63 and 9.5 games out of a playoff spot, so the pickup obviously isn’t for this season. DeJesus’ contract includes a $6.5 million team option (or $1.5 million buyout) for…

    Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper was hit twice by Braves pitchers last night, the second of which, thrown by reliever Luis Avilan, garnered a standing ovation from the home crowd in Atlanta. Braves pitchers have been at fault three of the four times Harper has been hit by a pitch this year. Recall that the benches cleared…

    Intentional or not, Bryce Harper‘s body continues to be a magnet for Braves’ pitchers. After benches cleared when the 20-year-old was hit by a pitch back on August 6, he was hit two more times last night. Harper was hit in the back by a curveball from starter Alex Wood in the top of the…

  8. Jayson Werth would like to see Charlie Manuel manage the Nationals

    Manuel Werth Getty

    When Charlie Manuel was let go by the Phillies yesterday, many speculated whether he has managed his final game in the big leagues. He turns 70 in January, so that’s a legitimate possibility. Still, one of his former players, Jayson Werth, told Mark Zuckerman of CSNWashington.com that he would love to see him manage the…

    During the first inning of last night’s Nationals-Giants game starting pitcher Gio Gonzalez and right fielder Jayson Werth had a verbal altercation in the Washington dugout that was caught on camera.

    Nationals outfielder Jayson Werth was lifted from tonight’s game against the Brewers after grounding out to third base in the top of the sixth.

  13. And That Happened: Tuesday’s scores and highlights

    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…

  14. Jayson Werth on Nationals after getting swept: “We’re a good team.”

    Jul 21, 2013, 10:15 PM EDT

    Washington Nationals v New York Mets

    With a 9-2 loss to the Dodgers today, victims of a series sweep and losers of six out of their last seven, the Nationals fell to 48-50 in third place in the NL East. Jayson Werth provided all of the offense this afternoon with two solo home runs; the rest of the lineup had just…

  15. Report: Nationals acquire Scott Hairston from Cubs

    Jul 7, 2013, 11:36 PM EDT

    Scott Hairston

    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. Rosenthal says the Cubs will get a minor league pitcher in return. Hairston had to be expecting a bigger role than the one he found in Chicago after signing…

  16. And That Happened: Monday’s scores and highlights

    Jul 2, 2013, 6:34 AM EDT

    Arizona Diamondbacks v New York Mets

    Mets 5, Diamondbacks 4: Arizona took two leads in this game: a 3-0 lead they held for most of it and then, after the Mets tied it in the ninth, a 4-3 lead in the 13th. The ultimate rally was capped with Andrew Brown’s two-run single. The best part of that, though: Kirk Gibson ordered…

    Bryce Harper Getty

    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. Harper went 4-for-11 with a homer and three total extra-base hits during a brief minor-league rehab assignment, which…

    Washington Nationals v New York Mets

    Nationals outfielder Jayson Werth had to leave this afternoon’s game against the Rockies after suffering a left groin strain, due in part to dehydration from the flu, reports Adam Kilgore of the Washington Post. Werth had singled to lead off the inning, but was pinch-run for by Roger Bernadina. Werth entered today’s game with a .256/.312/.413…

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

    Jun 21, 2013, 2:00 PM EDT

    Jayson Werth AP

    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…

    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…

    Davey Johnson

    Nationals manager Davey Johnson isn’t happy with his team’s offense, which enters tonight’s series opener against the Phillies having averaged 3.38 runs per game, the second-worst rate in the league. Looking for a quirky way to motivate his team, Johnson says he will not shave until the offense makes an appearance: The Nationals manager apologized…

    Jayson Werth AP

    The Nationals have Bryce Harper back in the starting lineup tonight against the Giants, but it appears that Jayson Werth‘s absence from a hamstring injury will be a little longer than initially expected.
