I defended the Nationals’ decision to shut down Stephen Strasburg before the end of the regular season and prevent him from pitching in the postseason. Few outside the team were defending the decision publicly then, and even fewer are doing it now, with the team on the brink of elimination — they...

SEE YA IN GAME 5
In Thursday's NLDS game four, the Cardinals and Nationals both struggled terribly on offense, combining for just two runs and five hits going into the bottom of the ninth. Jayson Werth led off the inning for Washington against Lance Lynn of the Cardinals, and battled Lynn for the first 12 pitches, fouling off seven pitches after starting out the at bat in an 0-2 hole. On the...
Since it's been a Jayson Werth sort of day around these parts, what with the cupcakes and Photoshops and whatnot, what better way to celebrate Ryan Zimmerman's first inning 2-run HR than with a screencap of Jayson Werth, howling.

The Washington Nationals signed Jayson Werth to show them how to win. His game-ending homer Thursday night extended their surprising season.
Werth led off the bottom of the ninth inning by driving Lance Lynn's 13th pitch into the left-field stands to give the Nationals a 2-1 victory over the defending World Series champion St. Louis Cardinals and force a Game 5 in their NL division...
The Washington Nationals finally brought winning baseball back to the nation's capital. They also collapsed in the postseason in a way that will be tough to live down.
The Nationals' historic season came to an end Friday night with a 9-7 loss to the St. Louis Cardinals in Game 5 of the NL division series. Washington sported the best record in baseball during the regular...
No, Washington Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper is not really tired or been possessed by the devil, nor has he crossed over and become a vampire or werewolf or zombie or some other member of the undead, no no need to sharpen up a wooden stake, arm yourself with holy water or arm yourself with silver [...]
Bryce Harper tripled during an early burst, then the Washington teen homered the next time up as Gio Gonzalez and the Nationals took a 6-0 lead over the St. Louis Cardinals after three innings Friday night in the deciding Game 5 of the NL division series.
A night after Jayson Werth capped a 13-pitch at-bat by hitting a winning home run in the ninth inning, the Nationals needed only...
I need this Jayson Werth cupcake immediately. Hook me up Fluffy Thoughts Cakes!
WASHINGTON (AP) Jayson Werth's Washington Nationals were as good as it got during the regular season, compiling a majors-high 98 wins.
That doesn't count for much come the postseason, where the St. Louis Cardinals excel. So what if manager Tony La Russa retired after last year's World Series title? Who cares that slugger Albert Pujols left via free agency? Just like...
Lance Lynn needed only a few words to describe a 13-pitch at-bat.
''Three-two heater. He beat me.''
There were more questions for the St. Louis Cardinals reliever, of course, but the answers were more or less the same. He went mano-a-mano with Jayson Werth in the bottom of the ninth inning of a playoff game, losing the battle when the Washington leadoff hitter put...
This has been a compelling postseason and it is getting more intriguing with each day. At the start of the season I projected the Giants and Yankees to meet in the World Series, and that’s still in play.
The Yankees’ showing makes them hard to figure out, but one thing is for certain, and that’s things will never be the same for Alex Rodriguez and how he’ll respond to being...

(Eds: With AP Photos.) By HOWARD FENDRICH AP Sports Writer For their first seven years, filled with on-field losses and off-field gaffes, the Washington Nationals merely existed, barely mattered.
That's why so much that happened in 2012 felt new and significant to them. All the regular-season wins - a best-in-baseball 98 - and the NL East title, the postseason highs and lows...
