A framed, color photograph of Adam Dunn in the batter's box hangs in the corridor leading to the home clubhouse at Nationals Park. And when he stepped out of a taxi Tuesday before his Chicago White Sox opened a series at the Washington Nationals, Dunn was greeted warmly by a security guard. ''Like I was here yesterday,'' Dunn said. He played for the Nationals in 2009 and 2010, when the losses mounted but the groundwork was being set in place for a team that suddenly soared to a majors-high 98 wins and an NL East title last year. ''I think everyone saw it coming,'' Dunn said about the Nationals' turnaround. ''You probably didn't see it coming as quickly as it did. But it was just definitely a matter of time. They've got the right people in the right places. They've got people making good decisions that should be making the decisions. They've got a good thing going over here.''

Welcome back to Washington, Adam Dunn

Too bad there's no DH in the NL, eh?

ChiSox's Beckham nursing wrist injury

Unsure how long he'll be sidelined, Chicago White Sox second baseman Gordon Beckham wore a thick wrap nearly the size of a football to keep ice on his injured left wrist Wednesday. Beckham said his wrist did not feel much better when he woke up Wednesday, but it did improve after getting treatment. He still has not swung a bat since leaving Tuesday night's game in the third...

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...
