Stephen Strasburg didn't nibble, was really dirty.

"It's just...attack the strike zone, don't nibble, and make them put the ball in want to go out and make your stuff really dirty." (Stephen Strasburg, via postgame, 7/25/2012) "He's tremendous. My gosh, almighty." (Terry Collins, via, 7/25, 2012) Nationals 5, Mets 2: Sweep! Nasty, filthy Strasburg...

Strasburg dominates as Nats sweep

Stephen Strasburg struck out 11 in seven dominant innings, Michael Morse and Danny Espinosa hit consecutive homers and the Washington Nationals completed a sweep of the free-falling New York Mets on Wednesday with a 5-2 victory. Adam LaRoche hit a two-run homer for a second straight day, and Espinosa doubled and scored on one of the Mets' two errors in the Nationals' fifth...

Strasburg's determination impressive in routine win

Stephen Strasburg is pretty tough on himself. He was visibly upset for allowing a ground-rule double to the Mets' Josh Thole in the fifth inning Wednesday. That kind of determination to be very good every game has defined the Washington Nationals' ace. His goal is not just to get outs. He demands more. Strasburg was brilliant in his 20th start, even if he thought he made...

Shark Week Comes Early In DC

On August 12, the Discovery Channel will begin its highly anticipated, 25th annual “Shark Week”, highlighting some of the craziest shark related stories in history. However, for some special “shark” fans in Washington, this two-week wait has become nonexistent, with the Nationals’ own “shark”, Roger Bernadina, headlining his own show this July. In the past 22 days...

Nats Talk On The Go: Episode 28

The past week of Washington Nationals baseball hasn't been a dull one. The Nats had an epic collapse, an exciting rebound, and an old friend came to visit. There are more injuries to discuss, and this time, they're serious. Will it have an effect on the trade deadline? We explore that too, all in this episode of Nats Talk On The Go.

May the Force Be With Us: Washington Nationals (55-39) @ New York Mets (47-48)

This is just wrong LOL.  Photo courtesy of   Well folks, it’s Star Wars night again.  Even Jabba the Hutt, er I mean Snooki, will be in attendance.  Now I have to go shower because I wrote her into this report. Hopefully a bit of “Force” can break the Mets out of this horrendous slump that has put them below .500 for the first time this season.  However...

Gio, Nats, make Mr. Met cry...

Nationals 5, Mets 2: Ho-hum, just another series win for the Nats. Gio Gonzalez makes up for last time out against R.A. Dickey, dominates Mets. Sorry, Mr. Met. Gio's line: 7.0 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 2 BB, 4 K, 87 pitches, 53 strikes. Oh deer! Adam LaRoche hits a bomb into the upper deck. Video here. Bryce Harper: 0-4, 3 K vs. Dickey... (Screencap of Mr. Met via @JWerthsBeard...

Snooki visits NY Mets, gets booed

The NY Mets took a break from their ERA and OPIs and got some GTL. Nicole ‘Snooki’ Polizzi visited the team as the Mets took on the Washington Nationals. “I was obsessed in the early 2000s when we had [Bobby] Valentine,” Snooki told “I loved [John] Franco, Robin Ventura, all of them. I was obsessed.” The MTV reality star, who is pregnant, revealed she became...

Nationals 8, Mets 2(10)

Bryce Harper homered his first time up in New York, then hit a tiebreaking single to key a six-run burst in the 10th inning Monday night that sent the Washington Nationals over the Mets 8-2. Shortstop Ruben Tejada's error on a potential double-play ball set up the big 10th. Ryan Zimmerman hit a three-run double and Michael Morse added a two-run homer as the NL East-leading Nationals...

Nationals Want To Take Advantage Of Plummeting Mets

Just like last week, the Washington Nationals (55-39) are gearing up to face the New York Mets (47-48) after finishing a four-game series split against a division rival to hang on to first place. And just like last week, the Mets are still in third place and in the midst of a terrible losing streak that has gotten even worse. The Mets are on a serious downward spiral, and have...

Nationals 5, Mets 2

NEW YORK-Adam LaRoche's two-run homer-the third of five straight two-out hits off R.A. Dickey-broke a tie and started a four-run sixth inning for the Washington Nationals, and Gio Gonzalez allowed an unearned run on two hits over seven strong innings as the Nationals beat the reeling New York Mets 5-2 on Tuesday. The Nationals' fourth straight win improved their National...

Split in DC

*pat pat* I was really hoping for a series sweep in our nation's capital (weren't we all?), but I'll take a split. Those first two games were amazing! Let's look at some pictures from all of them... WASHINGTON, DC - JULY 20: Michael Bourn #24 of the Atlanta Braves hits a triple in the ninth inning against the Washington Nationals at Nationals Park on July 20, 2012...
