Found July 23, 2012 on The Nats Blog:

The past week of Washington Nationals baseball hasn't been a dull one. The Nats had an epic collapse, an exciting rebound, and an old friend came to visit.

Ian Desmond Diagnosed with Oblique Tear

The NL East leading Washington Nationals received some bad news on Sunday as shortstop Ian Desmond was diagnosed with an oblique tear. Desmond, a first time All-Star in 2012, is in the midst of a career year, with 17 home runs and 53 RBI’s in just 89 games this season. In his previous four big league seasons, Desmond failed to top more that 10 home runs. According to a report in...

On Lannan Replacing Strasburg

One of my favorite baseball happenings of 2012 occurred yesterday, when John Lannan returned from minor-league exile to stop the Nats’ two-game skid and extend their NL East lead to 2.5 games. It was a big game, as far as July goes, both for the team and the man, who was demoted this spring in favor of Ross Detwiler and Chien-Ming Wang after being the rotation’s bedrock through...

Sources: Nats' Jackson drops Boras

Washington Nationals right-hander Edwin Jackson is changing his representation, leaving Scott Boras for the Legacy Agency, according to major league sources. Jackson, 28, signed a one-year, $11 million free-agent contract with the Nationals last offseason after turning down multiyear deals from other clubs. The Pirates offered him a three-year contract for around $30 million, sources...

Braves blasted in finale against Nationals

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Ryan Zimmerman homered twice and drove in three runs, and Danny Espinosa and Roger Bernadina each had three hits and two RBIs as the Washington Nationals beat the Atlanta Braves 9-2 to split a four-game series between the top two teams in the NL East. After Washington blew a 9-0 lead Friday night in an 11-10 loss, the teams split a Saturday doubleheader. The Nationals...

Shark Week Comes Early In DC

On August 12, the Discovery Channel will begin its highly anticipated, 25th annual “Shark Week”, highlighting some of the craziest shark related stories in history. However, for some special “shark” fans in Washington, this two-week wait has become nonexistent, with the Nationals’ own “shark”, Roger Bernadina, headlining his own show this July. In the past 22 days...

Lannan, Detwiler Fuel Series Split Against Braves

Things didn’t look all that good for the Washington Nationals half way through this four-game series against the Atlanta Braves. But a former Nats number one starter and the best number five pitcher in baseball had something to say about that. Friday night was a particularly hard loss for the Nats, as they had a nine-run lead through five innings, which they eventually blew in...

Gio, Nats, make Mr. Met cry...

Nationals 5, Mets 2: Ho-hum, just another series win for the Nats. Gio Gonzalez makes up for last time out against R.A. Dickey, dominates Mets. Sorry, Mr. Met. Gio's line: 7.0 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 2 BB, 4 K, 87 pitches, 53 strikes. Oh deer! Adam LaRoche hits a bomb into the upper deck. Video here. Bryce Harper: 0-4, 3 K vs. Dickey...

May the Force Be With Us: Washington Nationals (55-39) @ New York Mets (47-48)

This is just wrong LOL.  Photo courtesy of readtheapple.com   Well folks, it’s Star Wars night again.  Even Jabba the Hutt, er I mean Snooki, will be in attendance.  Now I have to go shower because I wrote her into this report. Hopefully a bit of “Force” can break the Mets out of this horrendous slump that has put them below .500 for the first time this season.  However...

Nationals 8, Mets 2(10)

Bryce Harper homered his first time up in New York, then hit a tiebreaking single to key a six-run burst in the 10th inning Monday night that sent the Washington Nationals over the Mets 8-2. Shortstop Ruben Tejada's error on a potential double-play ball set up the big 10th. Ryan Zimmerman hit a three-run double and Michael Morse added a two-run homer as the NL East-leading Nationals...

Snooki visits NY Mets, gets booed

The NY Mets took a break from their ERA and OPIs and got some GTL. Nicole ‘Snooki’ Polizzi visited the team as the Mets took on the Washington Nationals. “I was obsessed in the early 2000s when we had [Bobby] Valentine,” Snooki told MLB.com. “I loved [John] Franco, Robin Ventura, all of them. I was obsessed.” The MTV reality star, who is pregnant, revealed she became...

Nationals Want To Take Advantage Of Plummeting Mets

Just like last week, the Washington Nationals (55-39) are gearing up to face the New York Mets (47-48) after finishing a four-game series split against a division rival to hang on to first place. And just like last week, the Mets are still in third place and in the midst of a terrible losing streak that has gotten even worse. The Mets are on a serious downward spiral, and have...

Nationals 5, Mets 2

NEW YORK-Adam LaRoche's two-run homer-the third of five straight two-out hits off R.A. Dickey-broke a tie and started a four-run sixth inning for the Washington Nationals, and Gio Gonzalez allowed an unearned run on two hits over seven strong innings as the Nationals beat the reeling New York Mets 5-2 on Tuesday. The Nationals' fourth straight win improved their National...

Split in DC

*pat pat* I was really hoping for a series sweep in our nation's capital (weren't we all?), but I'll take a split. Those first two games were amazing! Let's look at some pictures from all of them... WASHINGTON, DC - JULY 20: Michael Bourn #24 of the Atlanta Braves hits a triple in the ninth inning against the Washington Nationals at Nationals Park on July 20, 2012...
