Found August 23, 2012 on Nationals Enquirer:
Oh, well, Nats dropped a tough one last night to the Braves on Chipper Jones Appreciation Night at Nationals Park. No sweep, no worries? Well, at the very least nobody got hurt (especially Ian Desmond and his hammy). Meanwhile, Bryce Harper achieved another Big League first last night: He swore not once, but twice in his postgame interview. Two s-bombs for Harper! In the video above (via, jump to the 1:11 mark), Harper can be heard dropping one of the two s-bombs he dropped in his postgame meet-and-greet with the media, talking about Braves starter Kris Medlen: "He threw the s--- out of it, so nothing you can do. Tip your cap." The other one? via MASN's Dan Kolko, on Prado's double that went over his head: "S---, he pissed on it. Nothing I can do. ... He backspinned the crap out of it."

Nationals' Strasburg shutdown is DC's big debate

The Washington Nationals' impending shutdown of Stephen Strasburg has caused the baseball team to do the once-unthinkable: steal attention from politics and the Redskins. It seems everyone has an opinion about general manager Mike Rizzo's plan to end the ace pitcher's season early - right in the middle of the city's first serious pennant race in more than a half...

Strasburg Shutdown: A Defense

Stephen Strasburg is up to 145 1/3 innings, and the Washington Nationals are sticking to their guns: once Strasburg hits 180 innings or so, he’s done for the year, and that’s that. There are two common arguments against this plan: 1) 180 is a number they picked out of thin air, and there’s no evidence that demonstrates that this type of shutdown will actually keep Strasburg...

Nationals are title contender even without Strasburg

I’ve been reading and watching a lot lately about the Washignton Nationals and their plans to shut down Stephen Strasburg for the season – including any potential playoff run – after 160-something innings. I come away with three observations. 1 – I can totally understand why teammates, fans, former players and even Strasburg himself might be upset by this situation (though...

145 1/3...

...but who's counting? Stephen Strasburg isn't - and he's not out there scouring the internet, either: "It's funny. Nobody talks to me personally about it. So I can either scour the Internet or watch all this stuff being said on TV, or I can just keep pitching and watch the Golf Channel, I guess." (Stephen Strasburg, via,...

Jarrod Saltalamacchia, Kurt Suzuki Among MLB Catchers Enjoying Benefits of Game Signs Signal Enhancers

Getting crossed up is a catcher's worst nightmare. Fortunately, it's becoming less and less of an issue because of a new product called Game Signs. Game Signs are bright-colored stickers that a catcher can place on his fingernails so that his signs are easily and effectively communicated to the pitcher. This ensures the two battery mates are on the same page, thus eliminating...

Nats Park North? Not Quite, and Other Musings On The Nats

You knew these kinds of stupid headlines were coming as soon as the Nationals pulled away from the Phillies, but still, seriously? Nats Park North? The Nats have had a really good year, playing their way to the front of the pack, even if I count myself as one of those saying it's lucky, and that they won't get this kind of luck in the post-season (or next year). To be fair...

Nationals-Phillies Preview

Despite being separated by 19 1/2 games in the standings, the Washington Nationals have had some trouble beating the Philadelphia Phillies. The NL East leaders, however, have yet to face them with the core of their lineup intact. That will change this weekend.
