Too bad there's no DH in the NL, eh?
Seems like only yesterday Adam Dunn was wearing a "Natinals" jersey and pleading for fans to save the baby oysters in the Bay and welcoming rookies to the Big Leagues, and sneaking up to talk to Bob Uecker in the Brewers radio booth, and, of course, hitting bombs.
Raise your hand if you got nervous after Rafael Soriano turned an 8-5 game into an 8-7 game with Adam Dunn looming in the on deck circle holding a bat an representing the go-ahead with 2 outs in the 9th. (Screencap above, via MASN)
Here's Dunn on the Nats on Tuesday, via Nationals Journal:
"I think everyone saw it coming. You probably didn’t see it
coming as quickly as it did. It was definitely a matter of time. They’ve
got the people in the right places. They’ve got people making good
decisions that should be making the decisions. They’ve got a good thing
going here." (Adam Dunn, via Washington Post, 4/9/2013)
And here's Dunn...
BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
A group of Washington Nationals fans are so intent to put an end to people in the stands at Nationals Park doing "The Wave" they have created a flier.
The Presidents race at Tuesday night's Washington Nationals game was turned into a shameless plug for the HBO series "Veep" as a 10-foot likeness of lead actress Julia Louis-Dreyfus was teamed with Teddy Roosevelt for the three-team relay race.
Louis-Dreyfus plays United States Vice President Selina Meyer in the series, and a likeness of Meyer was sent to the game...
There is no denying that Washington Nationals young superstar Bryce Harper plays the game with a youthful exuberance and a relentless aggressiveness befitting of his age. At 20, it shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone that Harper, while supremely talented and potential perhaps not yet realized, is still prone to making mistakes typical of an inexperienced baseball player with...
WE'RE TALKING ABOUT TRAFFIC
The White Sox-Nationals game was delayed because umpires were stuck in traffic. Or at least that's what they told everyone.
On a night when Gavin Floyd had great stuff to start with (he had allowed only an Ian Desmond double to this point), Bryce Harper was waiting in the weeds.
What follows in the video is his fourth home run of the season, and 26th of his career. It tied the game at 1-1 in a game the Nationals would eventually win 5-2.
When you look at Harper, he doesn’t look like a guy who has...
Bryce Harper homered, Ian Desmond had three extra-base hits, Danny Espinosa provided his first two RBIs of the season, and the Washington Nationals beat the Chicago White Sox 5-2 Wednesday night to stay unbeaten at home.
In a game that began 16 minutes late because, the Nationals explained, the umpires got stuck in traffic, Washington starter Jordan Zimmermann (2-0) limited Chicago...
The Washington Nationals survived yet another poor bullpen performance last night en route to their fifth victory of the season, a 8-7 win over the Chicago White Sox.
It was a sloppy game overall for the Nationals. While they officially only committed one error in the game, multiple mental mistakes both in the field and at the plate cost them throughout, making the...
Although the pre-season odds for the new MLB season show that the Washington Nationals are the favourites to win the World Series – with odds of just 8/1 – the situation for those looking to bet on the outcome is not as simple as all that. The odds information available at sports betting sites suggests that this is going to be a very exciting and competitive MLB season, with...
The start of the Washington Nationals-Chicago White Sox game was delayed on Wednesday night because the umpires were stuck in traffic. Seriously.
The game was scheduled to begin at 7:05 p.m. ET but didn’t start until around 7:20 p.m. because of the umpires’ delayed arrival. The late start may have affected the rhythm of Nats starter Jordan Zimmerman, who gave up two hits and...
After a stellar start, the Washington Nationals couldn't keep their momentum going on the road. They're hoping a return home will get them rolling again.
Gio Gonzalez will try to build on an impressive season debut and lead his franchise to its first 4-0 start at home in a decade in Tuesday night's interleague opener against the Chicago White Sox.
Washington (4-2) became...
Trash wins in a landslide.
