(Jordan Zimmermann talks with the media after Sunday's loss to the Cubs. Screengrab via MASN.com video.)
Cubs 4, Nationals 3: Once again Nats' offense shows up late; but this time without the magic. Thanks, Xavier Nady. Jordan Zimmermann was good, but Jeff Samardzija was better.
Chaditude fails to ignite: Chad Tracy 0-1 (K).
Left ankle sprain for Anthony Rendon Saturday night.

Drew Storen still has discomfort in his pitching elbow and the Washington Nationals closer will be examined by Dr. James Andrews.
Nationals manager Davey Johnson says Storen's elbow felt tender after the right-hander threw a simulated game Sunday at the team's spring training complex in Viera, Fla. Storen, who saved 43 games last year in his first full major league season...
Don't fear the reaper. That's just "renowned" orthopedic surgeon Dr. James Andrews approaching with his scalpel. (As an aside: We challenge you to find a report referencing "Dr. James Andrews" where the adjective "renowned" is not also included. Is this qualifier necessary so as not to confuse the "renowned" Dr. James Andrews with...
Top Nats hitting prospect Anthony Rendon had to be helped off the field last night in Class A Potomac after he hurt himself rounding third in just his second minor league game. Apparently, it was not a pleasant scene.
Bill Ladson of MLB.com is reporting this morning that the injury was to Rendon’s left ankle. The slugging infielder had previously hurt his right ankle severely...
Washington Nationals closer Drew Storen had a setback in his attempt to return from an elbow injury and will visit with Dr. James Andrews.
Storen threw a simulated game Sunday and his elbow came away feeling tender. He is currently on the 15-day disabled list and was expected to return this month.
Manager Davey Johnson said that it's possible Storen may have a bone chip in...
After missing most of spring training and the start of the season with elbow issues, Washington Nationals closer Drew Storen got the news no pitcher ever wants to hear, “it’s time to see Dr. James Andrews.”
During spring training, Storen had some discomfort in his throwing elbow, so he was shut down and was given a wet MRI to check for any ulnar collateral ligament damage...
With this week's episode, the Washington Nationals regular season is officially underway, and there's quite a bit to talk about. At the top of the ledger is injuries and the issues with Drew Storen's elbow. We talk Michael Morse and Rick Ankiel, and Anthony Rendon's ankle, too. We spent a lot of time talking about Adam LaRoche's crazy start, and if you throw...
The 2012 Cubs are about to jump the shark. Sending Jeff Samardzija to the mound is about as desperate an idea as when TV shows add Ted McGinley or have the Very Special Pregant Woman Gives Birth in a Stopped Elevator episode in an effort to boost ratings. The lineup that Sveum has constructed to [...]
I'm really liking that the minor league season has begun at the same time as the MLB season this year. It's usually a week after MLB starts. Iowa Cubs Josh Vitters was 1-3 again. He also walked again. I'm not holding my breath, but if Vitters could learn to become more patient he'd suddenly have [...]
CHICAGO | On a perfect summer Saturday afternoon in July of 1995, my girlfriend and I were walking down Clark Street about an hour before a Cubs-Phillies game with no plans to actually go inside the park. We hadn't planned ahead and figured we'd have to pay scalper's rates, so we were just out strolling around the Wrigleyville neighborhood, which we lived in at the...
The Brewers dropped their opening series to the Cardinals, losing to Jaime Garcia and Lance Lynn in three relatively high-scoring games. The Cubs, meanwhile, did their best to try to have the bullpen/defense blow late leads in all three games against the Washington Nationals. This will be Aramis Ramirez's first appearance in Wrigley not wearing [...]

Today’s edition of Real Talk is all about Pitches N’ Hoes. That’s right, the dudes slinging that ish are dominating this post. Oop, I think I just pitched inside... my boxers.More after the jump:
-If you were paying attention in Spring Training, Jeff Samardzija and his brilliant season debut shouldn’t come as much of a surprise...
