Found May 16, 2012 on Fox Sports:
Nationals catcher Wilson Ramos said Wednesday he will have surgery on his torn right anterior cruciate ligament in two to three weeks, forcing him out for the remainder of the season, The Washington Post reported. Ramos was injured as he chased a ball in the seventh inning of the Nationals' 2-1 win over Cincinnati last Saturday. The 24-year-old said he had not suffered any further damage, other than the ACL tear, and he hoped to be back for spring training. "Just the ACL," Ramos said. "They say it's normal surgery. I think I'm not coming back this season. But I will be good for next season." Ramos, 24, was batting .265 this year, with three home runs and 10 RBI.

How Do We Weigh Henry Rodriguez's Stuff With His Inconsistent Performance?

Up three runs last night, the Washington Nationals rolled the dice and allowed Henry Rodriguez to attempt to close the game for them. The gamble worked. Rodriguez retired three of the four batters he faced with the one batter reaching base on an Ian Desmond error.

Easy as 1-2-3

(Sean Burnett cleans up H-Rod's mess in the 9th, turns 1-2-3 double play to end the game. Screengrabs via MLB.TV/MASN) "I still haven’t lost confidence in Henry, but probably was asking a lot with that was his third day in a row going and he threw a lot of pitches in Cincinnati. So I’ll probably give him off tomorrow regardless. But I still have a lot of...

So a horse and a giraffe go to a Washington Nationals game… (photos)

While the title above sounds more like a lame opening to a silly joke, it was actually literally the case during the Cincinnati Reds-Washington Nationals game on Sunday afternoon at Nationals Park. Well, the two aforementioned creatures weren’t technically a horse and giraffe but instead were two fans wearing horse and giraffe heads, which begs [...]

Stephen Strasburg, embarrassed or didn't really get BENGAY on his balls?

Nationals Fall Short In Another Late-Inning Rally

It looked like it was going to be a really rough day for the Washington Nationals through five innings on Thursday at Nationals Park. Pirates starter John McDonald had electric stuff. He struck out 10 of the first 15 batters he faced, and took a no-hitter into the sixth. Things came unraveled for McDonald in the sixth though when he gave up a lead off double to Jesus Flores followed...

Former Bucs Out-Slug Current Bucs

Pittsburgh Pirates vs. Washington Nationals – Game 37

#Correia4Bullpen No rest for your Buccos.  They obviously slept with whoever makes the schedules significant other.  No rest traveling from Pittsburgh to Florida to Washington to Detroit back to Pittsburgh?  Seems fair on top of the hardest schedule in baseball.  You know how I feel about fairness though. First Pitch: 7:05 PM EST Where to [...]
