Rockies 7, Nationals 1: Death, taxes, and Dan Haren stinking out the joint.
Dear Andy Feffer: If Dan Haren makes his next home start, we propose a "Dan Haren Beachball Giveaway" night.

No Kidding. Strasburg: "I'm not a kid anymore."

The Washington Nationals are preparing to send struggling starter Dan Haren to the DL. Amanda Comak of the Washington Times tweeted that the news first came from Nats radio man Charlie Slowes, but it was subsequently confirmed by GM Mike Rizzo.

So today was Bryce Harper Bobblehead day at Nationals Park, and Harper apparently put on a show during batting practice (photo of Harper taking his hacks by @ZacBoyer), his first since going down with his knee injury almost a month ago. Harper was impressed with the standing ovation and adoration he received from the early arriving crowd:
Well that felt unreal! #BP #Lovethefans...
The sun rises, the sun sets, and Jayson Werth suffers another injury due to...dehydration? Up above, Jayson Werth giving the cut sign to the Nats dugout after his base hit in the fourth inning.
"I think it’s a situation where I’ve been kind of sick the last couple of days, haven’t really eaten a whole lot, probably pretty dehydrated." (Jayson Werth, via Washington...
Dan Haren has shown no signs of turning around a season-long slump.
The right-hander allowed six runs over 3 1-3 innings with seven hits including his 19th home run surrendered and an RBI single to opposing starter Jhoulys Chacin, who pitched seven shutout innings as the Washington Nationals fell to the Colorado Rockies 7-1 on Saturday afternoon.

Your browser does not support iframes. Washington Nationals center fielder Denard Span proved he make a catch in the outfield while blowing a bubble with some gum at the same time during Friday's game in D.C. Span had no trouble tracking down the fly ball by Colorado Rockies leadoff batter Dexter Fowler in the first inning and didn't lose his focus despite the potential...
"I’m not a kid anymore. ...You know, I should be allowed to stretch a little bit out there… No big deal. Obviously he cares about me and wants everything to be OK, but there was nothing to be worried about."

Nationals 2, Rockies 1:...
“Almost” has been the story of the Washington Nationals’ (37-37) flirtation with momentum for the past month. Every time they almost string enough wins together to start giving fans a little hope, another unfortunate loss happens and they find themselves sitting back at .500.
This time, the unfortunate loss came at the hands of the Colorado Rockies (38-38), who capitalized...
Once again, the Nationals struggled for runs when Stephen Strasburg was on the mound.
With the right-hander dominating against the slumping Rockies, two was enough.
Strasburg struck out nine over seven innings, Ian Desmond homered in his third straight game to help give the righty his first win in June and Washington beat Colorado 2-1 on Friday night.
''He threw great...
Washington Nationals center fielder Denard Span took multitasking to a whole new level on Friday night during his team’s 2-1 win over the Colorado Rockies Friday night. Take a look at Denard blowing a perfect bubble and at the same time making a perfect catch on a fly ball. And they say guys aren’t good at multitasking…

Before you read this post, no one who has ever read this blog at any length can simply say we’re being ‘haters’. We have stated numerous times that Bryce Harper is the greatest young talent we’ve ever seen enter the game of baseball in our lifetime. We never thought we would make a post like this.
Since the relative beginning, we’ve been following Harper. Knowing what he...
Remember the Washington Nationals, chic preseason World Series pick? Well, the Nationals have scuffled thusfar this season, but lately, they're showing signs of putting it all together. Washington has won three in a row, and knocked off the Rockies 2-1 last night in a vintage performance from Stephen Strasburg (and an all too common performance from their offense this season...
Momentum has been a concept that has eluded the Washington Nationals (37-36) for over a month, but on Friday night they scratched out a 2-1 win over the Colorado Rockies (37-38), which resulted in a long awaited three-game winning streak.
Stephen Strasburg was key to the Nationals’ victory, as he kept the game close for seven innings, allowing only one run on five hits...
Happy Saturday and welcome to the best day of the week to be a baseball fan. We’ve got baseball games from nearly sun up to sun down today, with the Rockies in Washington to kick off one of those whacky but relatively cool 12:10 starts in D.C. on Bryce Harper Bobblehead Day.
And again, because we’re obsessed with classic ballgames; you’re going to get an education on some 80′s...
Welcome to this week’s Triple Play. This week, we look at a Red-hot outfielder, a National disaster of a starter, and more (including our weekly Wainwright Walk Watch). Off we go:

Sorry for the pun up above. But take a look at that the Reds’ right fielder has done over the past two weeks and you’ll understand: a .322/.349/.796 slash...
