DOUG FISTER RUMORS & GOSSIP

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.

Tsuyoshi Wada against the Dodgers could be an interesting start as LA struggles against LHP. Vidal Nuno at Colorado...

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 Lackluster, Phils Sweep Nats

A tough night for Doug Fister, who gave up five runs in under six innings, helped the Washington Nationals (75-57) blow a pair of two-run leads and get swept for the first time since June by the Philadelphia Phillies (61-72), dropping the series finale 8-4. Today’s probable starters gave the impressions that the Nationals could avoid a sweep, as Fister (L, 12-5), arguably the best...

Washington Nationals: If the postseason started today

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...

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...
