Bryce Harper: “I’m not going to be Mr. Tim Tebow”

RG3 Wants Bryce Harper to Teach Him How to Slide

It isn’t that difficult Robert, you don’t have to be Vince Coleman out there. Feet first and get on the ground, but RG3 of course was a little over the top with his comments when asked about sliding. “I mean, if Bryce [Harper] wants to do that I’m definitely up for that,” Griffin said. “Bryce, we can do that if you want to, buddy.” “The problem is I’m not a great...

Nationals Looking Back on Dismal Year

As of September 27, the Washington Nationals sit at 84-75 and out of the playoff race. Their season was effectively over this week when they were swept by the St. Louis Cardinals and knocked out of wild card contention.

D-backs try to bounce back against Haren, Nationals

The Diamondbacks need to win each of their final two games to finish this season above .500.

Davey Johnson: Nationals ‘probably’ would have won in playoffs with Stephen Strasburg

Washington Nationals fans are left to forever wonder what could have been if the team allowed Stephen Strasburg to pitch in the 2012 postseason rather than shutting him down because of an innings cap. The Nationals certainly could have used another arm in the 2012 NLDS when they lost to the St. Louis Cardinals in […]

Strasburg wins final start 8-4 over D-backs

In 2013 Stephen Strasburg swapped his exasperating innings limit for a series of minor calamities controversies and oddities some within his control and some not. What remained was the gnawing perhaps unfair sense that his frequent excellence remains a tease for what he can become. “He’s good” catcher Wilson Ramos said. “And he will be better.” The Washington Nationals...

D-backs return home to finish season against Nationals

Paul Goldschmidt will bring a 16-game hitting streak into the Diamondbacks' final series of the season at Chase Field, a three-gamer against a Nationals team that opened the season with expectations of using the weekend as a springboard to the playoffs.

Zimmermann Falls Short of 20th Win As Nats Get Swept

Even though it was Pete Kozma's bad throw that allowed Ryan Zimmerman to break up Michael Wacha's no-hitter last night, it appears the curse of Game 5 is still alive.
