Daily SP Rankings: Thursday, Sep 18

So, who’s the better start: Doug Fister @MIA or Felix Hernandez @LAA? That’s what the rankings are for! (They also say Fister by a hair.) R.A. Dickey @NYY scares me because of the ballpark and the long ball, but I think on average this is an appropriate ranking. Tsuyoshi Wada against the Dodgers could be an interesting start as LA struggles against LHP. Vidal Nuno at Colorado...

"Fister? I hardly even know her"

Thank you, MASN, for sharing this magical moment in the history of Doug Fister puns. Nationals 2, Braves 1: Ho hum, just another Doug Fister start, this one a brilliant 7 inning, 2 hit, shutout performance. And just another breeze in the 9th for Drew Storen, who finally got his job back. #RespectTheAce: Good on Matt Williams for sticking with his Ace with two outs and two...

Doug Fister is Pitching to Contact

Doug Fister is fresh off seven scoreless innings Monday night against the Braves. Quality starts are pretty much old hat to the Nationals by now, who’re successfully running away with the NL East, but it might be a little bit surprising that Stephen Strasburg hasn’t functioned as the rotation ace. Really, that statement just speaks […]

Fister Brilliant as Nats Go Eight Up on Braves

Doug Fister was sharp tonight, giving up just two hits in seven shutout innings, as the Washington Nationals (81-61) did just enough to defeat the Atlanta Braves (74-70), winning 2-1. After a rough stretch that saw him give up 13 runs (11 earned) in 16.2 innings over three starts, Fister (W, 13-6) was right back to his usual self.

Washington Nationals: If the postseason started today

Currently, the Washington Nationals sit six games ahead of the Atlanta Braves in the National League East, and a trip to the postseason is certainly not guaranteed. However, for all intents and purposes, we will assume they get there. When the postseason begins, Washington faces some difficult questions, how will Matt Williams respond in his first year of managerial duty? The first...

According to sources, the Washington Nationals have traded Doug Fister to Baltimore for Steve Lombardozzi.
