Having already witnessed one David Wright home run on the day, Roger Bernadina made up his mind to never let it happen again. So when Wright bombed a ball over his head in center, Bernadina was going to catch that ball no matter what, even if it meant literally pretending nothing would stop him. Too

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!
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 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 [...]
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...
Big Stretch Upcoming For Nats
Last night’s thrilling win against the Mets in extra innings could act as a spring board to propel the Nationals on a hot streak as they prepare to host all four of their NL East opponents over the next two plus weeks in what could be the most important stretch of the regular season.

Between today and August 5th...
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...
Brian Goodwin, OF, Washington Nationals
Current Level: A
2012 Top 15 Prospects Ranking: 5th
Current Value: Value Up
The 34th overall pick of the 2011 draft, Goodwin signed for $3 million out of a Miami junior college. He’ll turn 22 in late 2012 so it’s a little surprising that he’s still in low-A ball after 57 games. The speedy outfielder is hitting .322 and has 43 walks compared...

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...
