Found April 10, 2013 on Suicide Squeeze:
Morning All What an interesting game that was yesterday. Anything that could happen did and I am almost afraid to see what today bring. Gavin Floyd is the starting pitcher and with the injury to Gordon Beckham I have no clue what the lineup will be for the game. The batters hit a large amount of foul balls, putting the pitchers on both side through a real workout. My link is fired up so Cinch it up and hunker down and let’s win this thing. Have a delay in the game starting, so as soon as I have info, will fill you in. (Umpires stuck in traffic) First Inning - Alejandro De Aza, Jeff Keppinger (single to center) Alex Rios (double) Adam Dunn (grounded to first,Keppinger scored) Paul Konerko.

Nationals fans seek to end 'The Wave'

A group of Washington Nationals fans are so intent to put an end to people in the stands at Nationals Park doing "The Wave" they have created a flier.

Gavin Floyd hung a slider to Bryce Harper and now he’s never going to see it again

On a night when Gavin Floyd had great stuff to start with (he had allowed only an Ian Desmond double to this point), Bryce Harper was waiting in the weeds. What follows in the video is his fourth home run of the season, and 26th of his career. It tied the game at 1-1 in a game the Nationals would eventually win 5-2. When you look at Harper, he doesn’t look like a guy who has...

Umpires in traffic delay game

The White Sox-Nationals game was delayed because umpires were stuck in traffic. Or at least that's what they told everyone.

Welcome back to Washington, Adam Dunn

Too bad there's no DH in the NL, eh? Seems like only yesterday Adam Dunn was wearing a "Natinals" jersey and  pleading for fans to save the baby oysters in the Bay and welcoming rookies to the Big Leagues, and sneaking up to talk to Bob Uecker in the Brewers radio booth, and, of course, hitting bombs. Raise your hand if you got nervous after Rafael Soriano turned...

HBO's Veep teams with Teddy in Nationals Presidents race (Video)

The Presidents race at Tuesday night's Washington Nationals game was turned into a shameless plug for the HBO series "Veep" as a 10-foot likeness of lead actress Julia Louis-Dreyfus was teamed with Teddy Roosevelt for the three-team relay race. Louis-Dreyfus plays United States Vice President Selina Meyer in the series, and a likeness of Meyer was sent to the game...

Davey Johnson on how to slow down Bryce Harper: Shoot him with a dart gun

There is no denying that Washington Nationals young superstar Bryce Harper plays the game with a youthful exuberance and a relentless aggressiveness befitting of his age. At 20, it shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone that Harper, while supremely talented and potential perhaps not yet realized, is still prone to making mistakes typical of an inexperienced baseball player with...

Beckham has Fractured Hamate Bone, Out 6 Weeks

In Tuesday night's game at Washington, Gordon Beckham hit his left wrist on catcher Wilson Ramos' helmet in the follow-through of his swing. While it was first expected that he'd just miss a few days to a week, we've now learned that he has a fractured hamate bone in his wrist and will be out up to or around 6 weeks. The tough keeps getting tougher for...

Nationals 5, White Sox 2

Bryce Harper homered, Ian Desmond had three extra-base hits, Danny Espinosa provided his first two RBIs of the season, and the Washington Nationals beat the Chicago White Sox 5-2 Wednesday night to stay unbeaten at home. In a game that began 16 minutes late because, the Nationals explained, the umpires got stuck in traffic, Washington starter Jordan Zimmermann (2-0) limited Chicago...

Nats Hold On To Earn Fifth Victory Of The Season

  The Washington Nationals survived yet another poor bullpen performance last night en route to their fifth victory of the season, a 8-7 win over the Chicago White Sox. It was a sloppy game overall for the Nationals. While they officially only committed one error in the game, multiple mental mistakes both in the field and at the plate cost them throughout, making the...

Betting On baseball: Favourites To Win The World Series This Season

Washington Nationals game delayed because umpires were stuck in traffic

The start of the Washington Nationals-Chicago White Sox game was delayed on Wednesday night because the umpires were stuck in traffic. Seriously. The game was scheduled to begin at 7:05 p.m. ET but didn’t start until around 7:20 p.m. because of the umpires’ delayed arrival. The late start may have affected the rhythm of Nats starter Jordan Zimmerman, who gave up two hits and...
