Can Washington Nationals superstar Bryce Harper break Roger Maris’ single-season record of 61 home runs in 2013?

With seven dingers in 74 appearances at the plate, Washington Nationals wunderkind Bryce Harper seems destined to honestly challenge Roger Maris’ single-season record of 61 home runs. Technically, Mark McGwire (70) and Sammy Sosa (66) in 1998 and Barry Bonds (73) in 2001 already surpassed Maris’ mark. However, considering the trio of McGwire, Sosa and Bonds used enough performance...

Strasburg takes fourth loss of year as Cards beat Nats

Stephen Strasburg took his fourth loss of the season on Wednesday as the Nationals fell to the Cardinals.

Wild pitch by Washington Nationals pitcher bounces over screen (video)

It is not uncommon for balls to travel over the protective screen behind home plate, but usually that happens when a lazy, high foul pop-up comes off the bat of the hitter, not caroming sky-high after a wacky bounce during a wild pitch by an erratic pitcher. But that exact situation occurred on Tuesday night when Washington Nationals relief pitcher Henry Rodriguez’s wild pitch...

Houston Astros Recall Outfielder Robbie Grossman

MLB News: The Houston Astros recalled outfielder Robbie Grossman on Wednesday from Triple-A Oklahoma City. He replaces Justin Maxwell who is on the disabled list with an injured hand. Fantasy Ramifications: Grossman has no fantasy value in full-league formats. While he can have some in AL only leagues, it isn’t enough to warrant dropping someone with promise. Keep Grossman on...

Jayson Werth says Phil Jackson the answer to Nats early season woes?

And so, while the Cleveland Cavaliers and Brooklyn Nets have apparently courted Phil Jackson about a coaching gig recently, Jayson Werth just wants Jackson to pay a visit to the Washington Nationals clubhouse, burn some sage, and adjust the feng shui: "Somebody was talking about Phil Jackson the other day. We need to call him up, have him come in & burn some sage or...

Davey: "It's Time To Get A Little Mad"

It was an ugly one offensively once again for the Nationals as they were shut out by the Cardinals at home. Davey was frustrated following the loss, indicating it was time to “get a little mad” and that there would be some changes in the lineup for Wednesday’s afternoon game. Hopefully, it’s enough to give the Nats a boost. Until then, the Nats have to sit on a 2-0 loss as...
