The Washington Nationals are Doing it Right

In case you haven’t heard, the Washington Nationals are a thing now. No, really. At 36-23, they’ve got the second best record in baseball, the best team ERA, and as much as it pains me to say it, this little thing called Bryce Harper, luckily sans “skullet,” which makes it hurt a little less. Here’s the thing about the Nats though, after Harper they don’t hit very well...

Washington OF Harper returns to starting lineup

Washington Nationals rookie Bryce Harper returned to the lineup Monday night, one day after he didn't start because of a sore back.

The Battle Between Wang and Detwiler Continues

When Chien-Ming Wang came off the disabled list, moving him into the rotation and sliding Ross Detwiler to the bullpen made sense.

But since returning, Wang hasn’t done much to impress since taking over Detwiler’s spot, and enough may be...

Nationals pitcher Gio Gonzalez takes to Twitter to find a date for the team’s 2012 Dream Gala
