Apparently, the doctor who performed Tommy John surgery on Stephen Strasburg wasn’t aware of the Nationals plan of shutting their ace down. This is according to Deadspin.com. When the Nationals shutdown Strasburg the entire MLB was in shock. Even though this news wasn’t out of the blue. It seemed inevitable that the Nationals front office was going to shutdown Strasburg after...
Keep the champagne on ice when the Washington Nationals inevitably clinch a wild card berth in the next few days:
"That’s not a big moment. It’s a nice moment, but it’s not a big moment. The additional wild card, to me, just really put more of a burden on the manager, because nobody wants that one. A one-game playoff to get in? The other format, if you were...
No. Words. For what it’s worth, the player on the Washington Nationals roster who currently wears No. 28 is outfielder Jayson Werth. Don’t know if this clearly misguided fan is attempting to make any kind of connection with the choice of number on his shirt and how he bastardized it by putting “NICKELBACK” on the [...]
He may be shut down for the season, however, the Stephen Strasburg topic will not die. I know, I know, this has been beaten like a rented mule – but until now I haven’t been able to put my feelings down on paper.
As the Nationals approach the postseason with one of the best records in the game, they’ll be second guessed time and again for their decision to cut off one of the...

Nationals manager Davey Johnson earned his first ejection of the season after arguing an awful call at first base by umpire Marvin Hudson on Saturday.

Washington Nationals slugger Michael Morse was not in Friday's lineup and may be out the entire weekend series against the Atlanta Braves, according to MLB.com. Morse is nursing a bone bruise and a slight tear in his left wrist that might keep him out until Tuesday. "I kind of knew it was being real optimistic that he could've been available (Friday)," manager...
"I’ve got a prayer, basically, with Andrelton Simmons at third. Just tried to get it as quick as I could and get rid of it. If I set, he’s already sliding in celebrating. There was a probably 1 in 10 chance, and didn’t get him." (Ian Desmond, via Washington Post, 9/15/2012)

There's Davey Johnson in the process of getting ejected for the first time this season on a blown call by first base umpire Marvin Hudson in the sixth, which was immediately followed by a game-tying home run by Jason Heyward. Here's Davey, via Washington Post:
"If I can see it from 150 feet that the throw beats him, and he’s on the
bag and he was out...
The Nationals farm system is a lot like other farm systems. When teams move from the cellar to the penthouse, the farm system goes through a number of changes. Players either graduate from the farm system to the ML lineup or they are traded to acquire players that become integral parts of the teams turnaround. In the case of the Nationals, they had both at the same time...
