So what if it was below freezing all day in DC on Saturday?
Up above, a photo of Bryce Harper standing in the cold on the corner of 7th and Mt. Vernon outside the Washington Convention Center after NatsFest. Jacket? No jacket. And yes, that's Jayson Werth and Danny Espinosa all snug and warm in their beards and winter coats in front of the kid to the left and right.
Via Nats Insider, Drew Storen found out about the signing of Rafael Soriano on Twitter. Apparently Storen immediately called Tyler Clippardf:
"I just saw it on Twitter and I called him and I said, 'have you seen this?’ We were like, ‘what?’" (Drew Storen, via Nats Insider, 1/26/2013)
Both Storen and Clippard said all the right things yesterday at NatsFest...
The Nationals have decided to make Williams Taft, the 27th president of the United States, the fifth member of their mascot race team.
And so, after all the rumors, speculation, and passionate debate, the Nationals will name William Howard Taft as the next Racing President, as first reported by Dan Steinberg over at DC Sports Bog. Minutes later, the Nationals posted a follow on story, with additional details about "Bill", like, he has his own Twitter account: @NatsBigChief27. There's Taft at a Washington...
Jordan Zimmermann, who just completed his first full, non-innings-limit-shortened, season with the Washington Nationals since undergoing Tommy John surgery is looking to get a long-term extension in place. First, though, he wants to resolve his upcoming arbitration without the hearing preferably.
Amanda Comak of the Washington Times says negotiations between the team and Zimmermann...
The cortisone injections into his shoulder definitely helped. This much is clear when you realize Danny Espinosa played with a torn rotator cuff for the final few weeks of the 2012 season. Espinosa revealed the news during the Washington Nationals' Fan Fest yesterday.
According to Eric Detweiler of the Washington Post, Espinosa would not have played through the pain if...
The Washington Nationals' newest racing president may have to drop a few pounds to be competitive.
The team said Saturday that William Howard Taft will join George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln and Theodore Roosevelt this season for the fourth-inning race by 12-foot mascots.
Taft was the portliest president at more than 300 pounds. He became the first president...
Surprising word from NatsFest yesterday that Nationals second baseman Danny Espinosa played through a torn rotator cuff in his left (non-throwing) shoulder late last season.
Espinosa is one of the more underrated Nats, given he is the only backup shortstop behind Ian Desmond, in addition to his starting duties. Espinosa's versatility is also seen at the plate as a switch...

When I found out I was going to have the opportunity to go to NatsFest, I wasn’t sure what to expect, as I had never attended an event like it before. But as an extremely enthusiastic Washington Nationals fan, something that seemed like a big party celebrating the Nats obviously had me interested.
From a fan’s perspective, it was a really cool experience, because besides...
The 27th President of the United States of America, and the only President to also be a Supreme Court Justice, is on his way back to Washington, DC. The Washington Nationals have selected Taft to become the 5th president of the organization’s mascot race. Unlike during his election in 1909, Taft was a long shot to grab the spot. The odds were 35-1 that he would be chosen to taken...
This is the sixth article in the series of our 2013 fantasy baseball rankings looking at the position of outfield. This year we see a changing of the guard in the top 20 as several young stars, Mike Trout, Bryce Harper and Jason Heyward are now firmly entrenched in the group.
The biggest question mark in the top 20 to me is Jacoby Ellsbury who was injured once again last season and...
