Aaron Barrett, Doug Fister lift Nationals to 7-2 win over Rockies

The conditions at Coors Field, like mud on a horse track or dim lighting at a bar, can equalize mismatched contestants. High altitude and vast expanses of outfield grass ensure even the most motley outfit will stumble into one ripe opportunity, one chance to send a game-altering hit hurtling through the thin Rocky Mountain air. Monday night, the teams with the best and worst records...

Washington Nationals: Starting pitching needs to improve

After the Marlins series last week, I had begun an article discussing how terrible the Nationals’ offense was and how hitting in the low .200’s with runners in scoring position simply will not get it done.

Watch Doug Fister do the splits on a stretch at first

Doug Splitster? Oh sure, Doug Fister (7 IP, 4 H, 2 R, 0 BB, 5 K, 93 pitches-63 strikes) was impressive again in winning his fourth straight start yesterday (Nationals 4, Phillies 2). But even more impressive? How about Fister doing full splits on a stretch while covering first base to *almost* complete a double play on a Ryan Howard grounder in the first inning? Watch the MLB...
