Nationals 3, Tigers 1: Ho Hum, Jordan Zimmermann was spectacular again (7.0 IP, 7 H, 1 R, 2 BB, 7 H, 101 pitches, 72 strikes). Raise your hand if you're kicking yourself for not taking those 25/1 preseason odds for J-Zimm winning NL Cy Young.
Meanwhile, good on the Nationals for reversing their rainout ticket policy earlier today, but now we demand an explanation for the t...
Not surprisingly, MLB did not fine or suspend Byrce Harper after his ejection at the hands of fightin' John Hirschbeck on Sunday in Pittsburgh. And, not surprisingly, Harper said all the right things when he heard about the decision:
"It's great. I'm glad I don't have to pay the $1,000. That's
another $1,000 in my pocket, so that's good. That...
The Washington Nationals have decided to overturn their new rainout ticket policy after receiving heavy criticism from both fans and the media.

Looks like Denard Span, Ian Desmond,...
Nationals’ slugging outfielder Jayson Werth has played in only one game since
April 29 -- and none since May 2 -- due to a sore right hamstring. A May 9 MRI
showed no structural damage to the hamstring, but Werth still feels the strain.
He is not in the May 9 starting lineup against the Detroit Tigers. Team doctors
want to examine the hamstring more closely.
Jayson Werth is still battling to get back on the field for the Washington Nationals. According to James Wagner of the Washington Post, Werth will have an MRI on his right hamstring on Thursday. Werth's recovery is not being aided by a stomach bug and Nationals manager Davey Johnson said Werth will also see an internist to deal with potential dehydration and cramping problems...
I know I'm a bit late to the game here, but I was unable to write until today, so I figured it was better late than never to talk about Bryce Harper's ejection by third base umpire John Hirschbeck from Sunday afternoon's game in Pittsburgh. The more I watch the video, the more amazed I am at the ejection and the set of circumstances that unfolded following the game. First...
One day after announcing a new rule regarding the use of tickets from postponed games, the Washington Nationals have reversed the policy.

In the eighth inning of the Nationals 3-1 win over the Tigers, the team's first win over the Detroit ballclub since 2005, Tyler Clippard came in to face Miguel Cabrera and Prince Fielder, which isn't the easiest task in the world. Clippard has struggled with keeping his pitches down in the zone, but his pitch location chart from this 34-pitch outing against the Tigers is...
On a day when rain postponed the start of a much-anticipated series against the Detroit Tigers, the Washington Nationals got some good news.
Manager Davey Johnson said left fielder Bryce Harper would not be suspended or fined by Major League Baseball for being ejected in Sunday's 6-2 win at Pittsburgh. Harper was ejected by third base umpire John Hirschbeck for disputing a checked...
The Nats did exactly what we thought they needed to over the last week, as Craig mentioned in Episode 51 of the podcast. We talk about Jordan Zimmermann's insane performance, Bryce Harper's ejection and injury, and Ryan Zimmerman's throwing, among many other things. Enjoy the listen and pay attention for the word of the week and share it with us on Twitter.
The Washington Nationals (17-15) have never won a game against the Detroit Tigers (19-11), but they will try to break that losing streak during the Tigers’ first visit to Nationals Park.
