Rockies Scutaro hit in helmet by Strasburg's pitch

Colorado's Marco Scutaro has walked off the field under his own power after being hit in the helmet by a fastball from Washington's Stephen Strasburg in the sixth inning Monday night. The Colorado second baseman was hit by a 95 mph pitch from Strasburg, the ball loudly ringing off his helmet, one pitch after Dexter Fowler hit a triple. Scutaro got up quickly and stood while...

"We need to score more. That's not in question."

"We need to score more. That's not in question." (Ryan Zimmerman, via NatsInsider, 6/24/2012) Peter Angelos's team beats Ted Lerner's team in 2012 Battle of the Beltways. MASN-Nationals battle still undecided. Smart money is on Lerner for that one. Orioles 2, Nationals 1 (Sunday): Seems only fitting that the only run the Nats could muster was...

Ailing Zimmerman keeps plugging along for Nationals

Maybe the Nationals won't be losing Ryan Zimmerman again after all. Earlier in the weekend, manager Davey Johnson said the Nationals might have to give the third baseman another cortisone shot for his inflamed right shoulder and possibly a spot on the disabled list once more. But Sunday, Zimmerman said that might not take place. The third baseman got a cortisone shot before...

Could We See John Lannan In July?

With the incredible Washington Nationals starting pitching staff this season, many have completely forgotten about John Lannan toiling down in Triple-A Syracuse. A few doubleheaders are coming up in the next couple months for the Nats, so it’s probably about time to remember that he’s there. Lannan struggled through most of the season in Syracuse, posting a 4.66 ERA and a 1...

Nationals’ Highest-Paid Starter Earning His Pay

Edwin Jackson’s major league career has been irregular to say the least.  Since his debut in 2003 at the young age of 19, he has played for seven teams in his first ten seasons.  In addition, he has spent his past two seasons with three different teams.  Last year he even helped lead the St. Louis Cardinals to the their eleventh World Championship before being released back...

The Colorado Rockies Jeff Francis Out Duels Nationals Strasburg

Denver, CO – Jeff Francis threw only 66 pitches through 5 innings to out duel the Washington Nationals ace Stephen Strasburg. Francis did not get the win but stepped up to limit the Nationals to 2 runs and only 5 hits.

Rockies reassign pitching coach Apodaca

The Colorado Rockies are reassigning pitching coach Bob Apodaca to special assistant to general manager Dan O'Dowd at Apodaca's request. Apodaca approached O'Dowd on Tuesday and asked for the change, Rockies manager Jim Tracy said. Bullpen coach Jim Wright and Triple-A pitching coach Bo McLaughlin will serve as co-pitching coaches for the remainder of the season. McLaughlin...

Lefty Cabrera is set to join Colorado rotation

Edwar Cabrera was in the Colorado Rockies' clubhouse Tuesday, and while no official announcement was made, the 24-year-old left-hander is expected to make his major league debut with a start Wednesday against the Washington Nationals. Manager Jim Tracy did say that Josh Outman would start Thursday rather than Wednesday. Thursday had been the turn for Alex White, but he was...

Nats Talk On The Go: Episode 24

This turned out to be the Washington Nationals pitching podcast for the most part. We spent quite a lot of time talking about Ross Detwiler and Chien-Ming Wang, but even more time talking about the bullpen, including Tyler Clippard, Drew Storen, Sean Burnett, and Cole Kimball. We also hit the trade deadline a few weeks early.

Rockies' pitching coach Apodaca re-assigned

Colorado Rockies pitching coach Bob Apodaca asked to be re-assigned on Tuesday, and he will now do special assignment work for the Rockies. The Rockies rank last in the Major Leagues in earned run average, runs allowed and opposing team's batting average, but the Rockies insisted that the move was initiated by Apodaca. Rockies general manager Dan O'Dowd told the Denver...

Nationals Offense Fails Again In Season-Series Loss To Orioles

The Washington Nationals entered Sunday’s game against the Baltimore Orioles looking to go 4-0 in rubber games this season. All the way into the eighth inning, the Nats looked to have it in the bag when a rare bullpen foul up cost the Nats the game. I’m not blaming this one on them, though. Ross Detwiler did what he needed to in his first outing since returning to the starting...
