R.I.P. Danny Espinosa's beard. Video of Danny shaving his beard via MLB.com. We hardly knew ya. At least we still have Ian Desmond's mustache and Jayson Werth's beard. Befriend Nats Enquirer on Facebook. Follow on Twitter.

Washington Nationals’ second baseman Danny Espinosa had a decent season in 2012 (except for those NL-leading strikeouts). Unfortunately, Espinosa and Washington packed away their Nattitude for the year after blowing Game 5 to the Cardinals in the National League Division Series. It was a crappy ending for the team with baseball’s best record in the regular...
WELL, IT IS THE WORD
A Nationals practice was interrupted on Thursday when a large bird believed to be an osprey flying overhead dropped a fish on the field, terrifying outfielder Denard Span.
Bryce Harper is already issuing gems for today’s diehard fan, he’s 230 pounds and he’s ready to wreck baseballs. This quote caught our eye, and it’s why we’ve loved Harper from the start. You know he means it when he says: “I’m still 20,” he said. “I’m still young. I’m going to treat every guy on our team with respect, going to treat every guy in the other dugout...
Biggest news out of Nationals camp today? Jordan Zimmermann and the Nats avoiding arbitration by signing a one year deal? Raffy clearing up his visa issues and being cleared to leave the Dominican Republic? No and No.
The answer: Ian Desmond's mustache, of course.
And the stache is staying a while, confirms @IanDesmond20:

I don’t know if you’ve been following the saga of Danny Espinosa’s beard. Quite frankly, I don’t really care about the beard. What I do care about is that this dude has an absolutely stunning girlfriend. She’s gorgeous.
Her name is Sara Mosher, and I think I’m in love. Tractor beam sucked me right in. I mean there are hotter chicks out there but there’s just something...
Adding 10 pounds of muscle in the offseason, Washington wunderkind Bryce Harper is determined to dominate the diamond and help lead the Nationals to the “World Series” this autumn. “There are [personal] goals in my head, but I’m not going … Continue reading →
Is this Mike Trout sending a message to second-year compatriot Bryce Harper, ala mob bosses of old? Or are the ospreys in Florida unhappy about the way the Nationals finished last season?
Motive is hard to judge in this case, but at least this much is known: A bird flying over the Washington Nationals’ spring training practice Thursday in Viera, Fla., dropped a fish onto the field...
There is no long term deal between Jordan Zimmermann and the Nationals. Yet.
The Nationals and Zimmermann did agree on a one year deal that avoids arbitration, a desire of both sides. Arbitration is always contentious and leaves hard feelings.
The Nats are thought to want long terms deals wqth Zimmermann and Ian Desmond. Both signed one year deals while longer term...
After Danny Espinosa shaved his winter beard I wasn’t ready to love again, but now Ian Desmond is growing a mustache (via @fpdougiefresh), and here I am over the moon. Sounds like he’s keeping it, too.
So the Nationals held their first full team workout today in the (*gasp*) frigid Florida air, and Raffy was there, too. Spring is in the air!
Meanwhile, Teddy and William Howard Taft continued their "Bill and Teddy's Executive Adventure" race to Mt. Rushmore, which ends on Presidents Day tomorrow. Something about the photo above, Tweeted Sunday by @NatsBigChief27...
Normally in spring training the only things that fall from the sky are fly balls; however, the Washington Nationals witnessed the unusual…..a falling fish. Apparently, a hungry bird made an error, dropping the fish onto the ball field. Practice was interrupted as the bird continued to circle as center fielder Denard Span worried about being [...]

In baseball, they say you can never have too much pitching. The Yankees seem to be taking that to heart. According to George King of the New York Post, the New York plans on sending scouts to watch Chien Ming Wang pitch for Taiwan in the World Baseball Classic.
Billy Connors, who used to serve as a vital part in developing pitching within the organization for the last 20 plus...
This is the first podcast since Gio Gonzalez was tied to a clinic that allegidly provided performance-enhancing drugs, so we address that issue before we get into spring training. We explore if the Washington Nationals have any real roster battles, and we evaluate the NL East competition a bit, focusing on the Atlanta Braves offseason moves.
