In our first installment of "Get to know Anthony Rendon before he gets sent back to Harrisburg when Zim gets back even if he's hitting .900", we focused on how Rendon talks fast in postgame interviews, and that Jayson Werth made him carry his bag. Tonight, something else we didn't know about Rendon until a clip on Nats Xtra on MASN before Tuesday night's Nats-Cards game: Anthony Rendon is partially tatted up. Looks like a pair of Jesus hands with cross on his chest, and thorns and a rose on his sleeve. Thankfully, no Yadier Molina-style neck tat (cc: C_St_Adam).

So Bryce Harper's hair continues to be a "thing" this season. And now we have a better idea how Harp gets his hair to do that rockabilly pompadour thing as seen in the screencap above from a recent postgame interview on MASN, thanks to this Tweet from Harper on Sunday night:
Best product around! @suavecitopomade #boom

When Washington Nationals’ top prospect Anthony Rendon was called up from AA Harrisburg after Saturday’s win against the New York Mets, many fans and pundits across baseball wondered how the injury to Ryan Zimmerman could affect the Nationals and their “World Series or bust” proclamation by Manager Davey Johnson. While this injury seems like it could have a negative impact...
Washington Nationals relief pitcher Ryan Mattheus created a unique rally cap in the bullpen during Wednesday's afternoon game against the St. Louis Cardinals.
The Nationals were down early as the Cards scored three runs in the first inning. Mattheus created his unique look by flipping his cap inside out and attaching Gatorade cups to his ears in the middle of a sixth...
With seven dingers in 74 appearances at the plate, Washington Nationals wunderkind Bryce Harper seems destined to honestly challenge Roger Maris’ single-season record of 61 home runs. Technically, Mark McGwire (70) and Sammy Sosa (66) in 1998 and Barry Bonds (73) in 2001 already surpassed Maris’ mark. However, considering the trio of McGwire, Sosa and Bonds used enough performance...
Stephen Strasburg took his fourth loss of the season on Wednesday as the Nationals fell to the Cardinals. Strasburg allowed three runs in the first inning but settled down to hold the Cardinals scoreless over the next six frames.
The Nationals have struggled to score in Strasburg’s starts totaling just nine runs in his five outings.
Today the Nationals scored just two runs to back...
It is not uncommon for balls to travel over the protective screen behind home plate, but usually that happens when a lazy, high foul pop-up comes off the bat of the hitter, not caroming sky-high after a wacky bounce during a wild pitch by an erratic pitcher.
But that exact situation occurred on Tuesday night when Washington Nationals relief pitcher Henry Rodriguez’s wild pitch...
Zebulon, N.C. –Potomac Nationals first baseman Kevin Keyes hit a two-run homer that shattered a light bulb in left field to give Potomac the 2-0 win over the Carolina Mudcats on Wednesday night at Five County Stadium.
The Nationals held the Mudcats scoreless for the first time this season. With the offense failing to score, Shawn Morimando suffered the loss for Carolina despite...
And so, while the Cleveland Cavaliers and Brooklyn Nets have apparently courted Phil Jackson about a coaching gig recently, Jayson Werth just wants Jackson to pay a visit to the Washington Nationals clubhouse, burn some sage, and adjust the feng shui:
"Somebody was talking about Phil Jackson the other day. We need to call him up, have him come in & burn some sage or...
Either Denard Span is trying to vault off Allen Craig here like he’s a pommel horse, or this is some kind of deliberate attack using a yet unknown martial art.
It was an ugly one offensively once again for the Nationals as they were shut out by the Cardinals at home. Davey was frustrated following the loss, indicating it was time to “get a little mad” and that there would be some changes in the lineup for Wednesday’s afternoon game. Hopefully, it’s enough to give the Nats a boost. Until then, the Nats have to sit on a 2-0 loss as...
