    After last night’s walk-off homer Fluffy Thoughts Cakes in Washington, D.C. decided to make a Jayson Werth cupcake to sell today for $5. Sarah Kogod of the Washington Post has a photo and it’s pretty great:

  3. Deep Thoughts: ex-Phillies edition

    Oct 12, 2012, 10:30 AM EDT

    Philadelphia Phillies v Arizona Diamondbacks

    Forgot to mention this earlier, but I was really wondering last night how it felt for Phillies fans to see Raul Ibanez play hero on Wednesday night and then, less than 20 hours later, seeing Jayson Werth play the hero for the Nats. If Scott Rolen had gone yard instead of striking out to end…

  4. Looking ahead to two more Game 5s

    Oct 12, 2012, 9:11 AM EDT

    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…

  5. And That Happened: Thursday’s playoff highlights

    Oct 12, 2012, 5:45 AM EDT

    Division Series - San Francisco Giants v Cincinnati Reds - Game Five

    What a ripoff. Instead of the 12 hours of baseball craziness we got on Wednesday, Thursday’s games only gave us eleven and a half hours. I want my money back. Giants 6, Reds 4: Buster Posey with the big bomb. Dusty Baker with a bomb of his own. San Francisco moves on to face the…

    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…

    Oct 7, 2012, 7:01 PM EDT

    Division Series - Washington Nationals v St Louis Cardinals - Game One

    Adam Wainwright held the Nationals to one run over 5 2/3 innings Sunday in Game 1 of the NLDS and recorded the most strikeouts (10) by a Cardinals pitcher in a postseason game since Bob Gibson. Gio Gonzalez, meanwhile, issued a career-high-tying seven walks over just five innings of work. But the Cardinals couldn’t capitalize…

  14. Jayson Werth acts very Jayson Werthy in Philly

    Sep 27, 2012, 9:13 AM EDT

    Jayson Werth

    Jayson Werth is a bit of an odd duck. He’s not a cliche guy. Indeed, he’s something of a curious speaker for a ballplayer. Hard to explain it exactly, but when you hear interviews with him you can sort of tell that he’s on a different mental track than a lot of baseball players. He’s…

  15. And That Happened: Wednesday’s scores and highlights

    Baltimore Orioles Machado rounds the bases after hitting a home run against the Toronto Blue Jays during an MLB game in Baltimore

    Orioles 12, Blue Jays 2: Bombs away. Chris Davis and Manny Machado each had two homers and the O’s hit seven in all, keeping pace with the Yankees, who maintain their one and a half game lead. Yankees 8, Twins 2: CC Sabathia looks to be back on his game, and that will be huge for the Yankees in…

  16. Settling the Score: Saturday’s results

    Marlins Nationals Baseball

    The Nationals keep winning in all sorts of ways. On Saturday evening in D.C. it was Jayson Werth playing the role of hero with a game-tying solo home run in the bottom of the ninth inning following a rain delay of nearly three hours. Corey Brown then iced the victory in the 10th inning on…

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

    Sep 8, 2012, 1:01 PM EDT

    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…

  18. 2013 Top 111 Free Agents: Nos. 50-1

    Sep 7, 2012, 12:10 PM EDT

    Josh Hamilton

    Here’s the top 50 of a rather weak free agent class. Again, I didn’t include Robinson Cano, R.A. Dickey and some others whose options are sure to be picked up. Also absent is Mark Reynolds. He is not eligible for free agency, though there’s a good chance he’ll be non-tendered this winter. All ages are…

  19. The Cubs apparently think this is Little League

    Sep 7, 2012, 8:23 AM EDT

    Chicago Cubs v Washington Nationals

    The scene: Nationals Park, during the fifth inning of the last night’s Cubs-Nats game, Nats up 7-2. The incident: Cubs bench coach Jamie Quirk is jawing from the dugout — after he was ejected umpire Jerry Layne referred to it as “screaming out obscenities,” and Nats third-base coach Bo Porter jawed right back at him.  The reason,…

  20. The Nationals are dinger crazy

    Sep 6, 2012, 8:23 AM EDT

    Adam LaRoche

    The Nationals hit six home runs last night.  They also did it on Tuesday night.  That’s only the third time a team has hit six homers on consecutive nights ever. The previous two: the Angels did it against the Expos in 2003 and the Dodgers in Colorado in 1996. Caveat: the former did it in…

  21. Jayson Werth and Davey Johnson dump on Jim Riggleman

    Aug 27, 2012, 4:30 PM EDT

    Jim Riggleman

    Bill Ladson of MLB.com has a story up about how the Nationals have a new offensive identity this year. The crux of it: Davey Johnson — unlike seemingly every broadcaster you’ve ever heard — is NOT a fan of his hitters always trying to take the ball the other way. Rather, he wants his hitters…

  22. Cliff Lee earns rare win as Phillies finish sweep of Nationals

    Aug 26, 2012, 5:56 PM EDT

    Cliff Lee

    Cliff Lee bested Jordan Zimmermann on Sunday, pitching seven innings of one-run ball to earn his third win as the Phillies topped the Nationals 4-1. The Phillies held the Nationals to just five runs over three games in pulling off a home sweep to improve to 61-67. It’s the first time they’ve been within six…

  23. Red Sox could seek out big-name targets this winter

    Aug 25, 2012, 4:22 PM EDT

    Josh Hamilton

    The Red Sox have had an average payroll in excess of $170 million the last three years. With Adrian Gonzalez, Carl Crawford and Josh Beckett departing and David Ortiz, Daisuke Matsuzaka and Cody Ross all set to become free agents, they’re currently looking at something less than half of that for 2013. It figures to give…

  24. Nick Swisher is going to seek a “Jayson Werth” deal? Good luck with that.

    Aug 21, 2012, 1:31 PM EDT

    Nick Swisher Getty

    Jon Heyman hears whispers about the free agency future of Nick Swisher: Word going around is, Nick Swisher, the Yankees’ eternally upbeat rightfield power supply, may seek a “Jayson Werth contract” when he hits free agency at the end of the year. To baseball fans, that is well-known to mean $126 million over seven years. In other…

  25. And That Happened: Thursday’s scores and highlights

    Aug 3, 2012, 6:00 AM EDT

    Ryan Dempster

    Rangers 15, Angels 9: Ryan Dempster was shelled in his Rangers debut, but it didn’t matter because C.J. Wilson was shelled too. Josh Hamilton drove in four. You have to wonder if Wednesday night’s game was some kind of turning point in this race. Rockies 8, Cardinals 2: Homers in four straight games for Josh…
