(You wouldn't know if he won or lost from watching a Jordan Zimmermann postgame interview. Screencap via MASN/TV)
Nationals 4, Mets 3: Ho-hum. Just another series win for the Nats. 17 wins over .500.
Ho-hum; just another quality start for Jordan Zimmermann. His line: IP, 4 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 4 K, 95 pitches, 68 strikes. Hey, he got the W for this one!
The Washington Nationals were defeated by the New York Mets 9-5 this afternoon so the guys have the evening to themselves. Washington relief pitchers Drew Storen (who made his season debut today) and Tyler Clippard are planning to see the highly anticipated movie The Dark Knight Rises, like just about everyone else [...]
After getting out to a 9-0 lead on Friday, the Nationals found themselves on the losing end of a 11-10 loss after a stunning comeback by the Braves. It was a game Nats manager Davey Johnson called “probably the worst I’ve ever managed in my career.” Johnson was just as unforgiving with Stephen Strasburg, who went five scoreless innings before allowing four runs in the sixth...
Now that we've made it past the All-Star break, Ryan Zimmerman is due for another cortisone cocktail, according to the Washington Post. The shot in his shoulder will reduce inflammation in his AC joint, and prevent him from feeling pain when he hits. Zimmerman said that the ability he regained after receiving the shot made him “happier,” and it has been making Nationals fans...
Washington Nationals general manager Mike Rizzo says he and he alone will make the decision on when to shut down pitcher Stephen Strasburg for the season. No number of innings has been announced as the stopping point for Stasburg, who is coming off Tommy John surgery, but speculation has the limit at around the 161 1/3 innings that Jordan Zimmermann, also coming off elbow surgery...
As one of the most underrated starters in baseball, Jordan Zimmermann had a typical Jordan Zimmermann outing on Wednesday as the Washington Nationals beat the New York Mets 4-3 and win the series.
Zimmermann lasted six innings, surrendering just four hits and striking out four. He didn’t give up any runs or walks. It’s ben remarkable to watch how good JZimm has been, and it...
The Washington Nationals announced that they have activated Xavier Nady from the DL and have designated him for assignment. The move was necessary as a roster spot was needed for John Lannan as he is set to start game one of the double header today.
When Nady wasn't on the DL, he hit just .157 with 3 home runs and 6 RBIs in 102 at bats for the Nats.
The Nationals signed Nady...
Braves 11, Nationals 10. 11 innings. With AP Photos. Up by nine runs with Stephen Strasburg on the mound, the Washington Nationals seemed to be in perfect position to take the first of a four-game series with Atlanta and jump another game ahead of the Braves in the standings.
Then everything went wrong. Strasburg gave up four runs in the sixth inning, the Braves scored another four...
The hot stove is heating up with the non-waiver trade deadline coming up on July 31st.
Now seems like the right time to look at what players the Nationals could go after and what players Washington could offer in order to make a deal happen.
Last month we talked about the limitations the Nats may face as the deadline approaches. Now that we have seen Bryce Harper show that...

According to Adam Rubin in this tweet, when the Mets arrived in town the Nats inquired about the Mets interest in Rick Ankiel. The Nats were probably attempting to maintain some level of leverage prior to placing him on waivers, now that he's been designated if the Mets want him they can wait to sign him at league minimum.The Mets were rumored to be interested in Ankiel this...
WASHINGTON -- Adam LaRoche smacked a two-run home run, Steve Lombardozzi had two RBIs and the Washington Nationals survived two ninth-inning home runs for a 4-3 win over the free-falling New York Mets on Wednesday night. Jordan Zimmermann stymied the Mets with six shutout innings and three relievers danced around trouble over the final three frames to preserve second consecutive...
By Ben Standig WASHINGTON – What's the difference between urgency, pressing and panic? That's something outfielder Jason Bay pondered in the Mets clubhouse following New York's latest loss. Unless they snap out of their current slump, the Mets could experience all three soon enough. Adam LaRoche smacked a two-run home run, Steve Lombardozzi had two RBIs and the...
