This just might be the most bizarre sequence of events to have occurred in the bigs this season. Washington Nationals’ Michael Morse hits his 4th career grandslam. The ball just barely cleared the wall, it actually hit the top of it. The ball then ricochets off a second wall, back onto the field.
They initially, called him ‘out’ after failing to get back into first base and being tagged; he was about to turn second. Then, after reviewing the play, the umps awarded him the grandslam and forced him to ‘renact’ the at-bat… you actually just need to watch the entire play.

Washington Nationals new found ace, Gio Gonzalez registered his 21st win in 2012 Thursday night against the Philadelphia Phillies.
Gonzalez pitched six innings, striking out six batters and allowing three earned runs on the road in last night’s contest.
The win gives Gonzalez the most in MLB so far this year, easily making him one of the most surprising pitchers this season.
ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Michael Morse circled the bases for a grand slam after taking an imaginary swing, and the Washington Nationals cut their magic number for winning the NL East to one Saturday night, beating St. Louis 6-4 on Kurt Suzuki's two-run double in the 10th inning.
The Nationals were forced to wait at least another day when second-place Atlanta won.
St. Louis' magic...

Cardinals 10, Nationals 4: No clinch today. Captain Hook didn't have a quick enough hook for an awful Ross Detwiler, handed the game to Chien Ming Wang. Det N' Wang combined line: 4.2 IP, 7 H, 9 R, 5 ER, 6 BB, 2 HR, 2 wild pitches...
Washington Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper has been crowned “The Chosen One” since he graced the cover of Sports Illustrated as a 16 year old. His talent has forever been impressive, but his God’s-gift-to-baseball status has rubbed more than one traditional fan the wrong way. His haircut, mustache, and tenacity are unfamiliar to a game so often accused...

It's been more than a week since the story of famed ballhawk Zack Hample getting kicked out of a Washington Nationals game for, alledgedly, selling baseballs hit the internets.And, like everything you read online nowadays, dude's story is not without controversy.Wednesday, after Hample teased that his story was going to be re-posted here at The Hall, I was greeted with this...
OG Nats blog Capitol Punishment is doing a thing where it names the “most Natinals players.” You know, from the 2006-10 period of Nationals baseball when they were pretty much the laughingstock of Major League Baseball (if not all of sports).
Which got me thinking when I saw this Cristian Guzman dirt collage. Is it the most Natinals memorabilia? And, if not, what could possibly...
