NL East-Leading Nationals Continue To Be Popular Draw In Ticket Sales

View image | gettyimages.com The Washington Nationals storm into July looking every bit as good as they were expected to be leading up to the 2015 MLB season. Already atop the NL East, Bryce Harper and co. look to distance themselves even further from the pesky New York Mets as they aim to secure the division and return to the playoffs. After a slow start because of injuries...

Max Scherzer making clever pitches for pinch-hitting duties

Given that Max Scherzer openly — and apparently jokingly — campaigned earlier this season against pitchers hitting in the National League, relegating the practice to the annals of baseball history, it’s surprising that the Washington Nationals ace apparently openly — and again perhaps jokingly — campaigns for pinch-hitting duties. Even better, he does so in...Read More...

All Clint Robinson Does Is Hit Home Runs

After spending much of his professional career in the minors, Nationals utility player Clint Robinson has finally got a chance to show his talents. In his first full season in the majors, Robinson has been a delight for Washington. On Tuesday night he hit his third home run of the season in his 128th plate appearance of the year.

Washington Nationals trade rumors: Ian Desmond edition

Poor, poor Ian Desmond. Even when he smashes a 458 foot homer over the seats at Citizens Bank Park,  he still can’t shake the constant buzz surrounding his awful 2015 season with the Washington Nationals. The shortstop has recently looked like he may be slowly heading in the right direction with his bat, but it is still quite probable that he will be pawned off before the trade...

Dan Uggla playing 'big role' with Nationals despite limited playing time

Baseball fans don't see much of Dan Uggla anymore these days, but that doesn't signify that he's not having a significant impact on the Washington Nationals in his first year with the team. Uggla has only received 85 at-bats as a member of the Nationals this season, in which he's compiled a batting average of .235, hit a home run, and driven in 12 runs. While that's not much of an...

The Mets offense is reeling, but they are able to stay afloat in both the NL East and Wild Card race...

Jeff Francoeur makes one of the worst throws in history

In one play Sunday afternoon, Jeff Francoeur just about summed up the Philadelphia Phillies’ entire season. It’s been a rough season for the Phillies who are among baseball’s worst teams, and it must be even worse for a veteran like Francoeur, a once can’t-miss prospect who’s bounced around baseball looking for work. On Sunday, Francoeur’s season might have hit rock...

Washington Nationals trade rumors: Aroldis Chapman edition

Washington Nationals’ Max Scherzer is proving to be money well spent

Max Scherzer is currently the best pitcher in the National League and possibly in the majors. He is coming off one heck of a stretch. In his last start he threw a no-hitter and was so close to throwing a perfect game. Some believe that the batter he hit a pitch with leaned into it. No matter what, Scherzer was very close to throwing a perfect game. On Friday night, for the third...

Anthony Rendon back to the DL for the Washington Nationals

When Washington Nationals third baseman Anthony Rendon has been on the field this season, he has played solid baseball. Rendon owns a .290 batting average with an on-base percentage of .375. Unfortunately for Rendon and the Nationals, he has been unable to stay on the field, as injuries have derailed a majority of the 3rd year pro’s season. Rendon already spent time on the disabled...
