"I’m just throwing strikes and trying to get ahead of guys and not trying to get deep in the counts and letting them put the ball in play. I don’t care about strikeouts. I don’t want to walk anyone."

Breaking down Bryce Harper's first 162 games

A year ago today, the Washington Nationals called Bryce Harper up to the big leagues, so he officially has one full season of Major League Baseball under his belt. One of the coolest little known features of the site is a split called “Past Calendar Year”, which allows you to see how a player has done in the last 365 days, giving you a rolling one year look at a player’s most...

Heck of a start by Gio Gonzalez last night against the Reds, no? Meanwhile, Gio posted the photo above (Photo via giog47 on Instagram) of his collection of Nats starting rotation bobbleheads in his locker at Nationals Park a few days ago: Jordan Zimmermann, Stephen Strasburg, and Gio Gonzalez. Anybody missing? "All I'm missing is Ross and Haren

Nationals Give New Sideline Reporter, Julie Alexandria, Gatorade Shower First Two Nights on Job (Video)

Julie Alexandria‘s first two night on the job covering the Nationals for MASN have been wet ones. No, rain hasn’t been on the forecast, but Gatorade has. Alexandria has had the unfortunate luck to cover back to back one-hitters at Nationals Park in Washington, D.C. She happened to be standing next to Gio Gonzalez when he received his Gatorade shower after a one-hitter on Thursday...

Nats fans sacrificed a rubber chicken at Nationals Park today...

In an attempt to help the Nationals break out of their April doldrums, Nationals fan Hugh Kaufman led a ritual sacrifice of a rubber chicken outside the center field gate at Nationals Park at high noon before Thursday night's Nats-Reds game. Apparently sage was also burned at Jayson Werth's behest. Well, at least in the early stages of Thursday night's game, it seems...

Nationals' Zimmermann one-hits Reds

Jordan Zimmermann was terrific in his second complete game of the season and the Washington Nationals limited the Cincinnati Reds to one hit for the second straight game in a 1-0 victory on Friday night.

Nationals give reporter Gatorade bath after game

The Washington Nationals used a sterling performance from Gio Gonzalez and some offensive activity to defeat Cincinnati 8-1 on Thursday night. After the game new MASN reporter Julie Alexandria got welcomed to the sidelines with a Gatorade shower while interviewing Gonzalez. (H/T Nats Inquirer) To earn the shower Gonzalez went 8 innings allowing one run. Here are some screenshots...

Julie Alexandria gets not one, but two Gatorade showers from the Nationals

The Washington Nationals have initiated new MASN field reporter Julie Alexandria to the team. How you ask? By giving her the postgame Gatorade bath.  This started last year after various Nationals victories. Not only would the player in the on-field postgame interview get doused, but so would the reporter. Last season, Kristina Akra was the person who was the brunt of several...

Nationals' Wilson Ramos set to come off DL tomorrow

The Washington Nationals will once again have their one-two punch at catcher.  Wilson Ramos, who has been nursing a hamstring sprain, is set to come off the disabled list tomorrow afternoon.  Ramos had been placed on the 15-day DL when the hamstring failed to heal with just short rest. According to Amanda Comak of the Washington Times, Ramos' hamstring is feeling strong...

MASN Reporter Gets An Unexpected Gatorade Shower Two Days In a Row

Following the Washington Nationals beat the Cincinnati Reds 8-1 on Thursday night, sideline reporter Julie Alexandria took a very unexpected Gatorade shower courtesy of a celebration bucket meant for Gio Gonzalez.  Julie was working her very first game for MASN, and she handled the situation like a seasoned veteran. Gio was absolutely deserving of his portion of the Gatorade...

I’m in Dead Last Place – An Ode to Stephen Strasburg

Stephen Strasburg is killing me. Seriously. He is 1 and 4. I traded Ryan Braun for him and Josh Hamilton (another sore subject for me). Man, can I pick ‘em? I guarantee if anyone else had him in my league, he would be 4 and 1 right now. For everyone who currently has Strasburg on his or her team, I’m sorry. This start is atrocious. It’s my fault. Need I bring up Joey Votto...

New Nats reporter gets another Gatorade bath

Thursday was the first day of a brand new gig for MASN reporter Julie Alexandria. She received a Gatorade dousing that was meant for Washington Nationals (and former White Sox super-prospect) Gio Gonzalez. The Nationals’ blanked the Cincinnati Reds last night, with Jordan Zimmermann’s performance worthy of a potential Gatorade bath. However as you can see in the video below,...

The Bryce Harper Monster Bomb off Bunny Arroyo that wrecked by gambling account

May 7th, 2009: I tried to be sneaky tonight by taking a prop bet that Bryce Harper would NOT homer off Bronson Arroyo. You figure that Arroyo is a veteran pitcher who should know better than to pitch to the one hitter in the Nationals cold lineup who can hurt you. What resulted was one of the longest home runs that Bryce Harper has ever hit. After the ball landed on the centerfield...

Gio Spins A Gem, Nats Win 8-1

The Nationals had lost four straight games entering this Reds series, and the offense had been deplorable. The entire 25-man roster decided today was going to be the end of that, as they put a hurting on the Reds in all aspects of their play in the 8-1 victory. Gio Gonzalez got things started on the right note, and he never let up for the rest of his outing. He was perfect through...
