Reds rally comes up short, Nats win 4-2

CINCINNATI (AP) -- Doug Fister took advantage of facing the slumping Cincinnati Reds to extend the best season-opening start by any Washington pitcher in a 4-0 Nationals' win Sunday. Fister (10-2) allowed just three hits with one walk and five strikeouts in seven shutout innings to reach 10 wins in 14 starts, one fewer than any previous Washington pitcher. Gio Gonzalez reached...

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...

Babe Ruth, Willie Mays, Jackie Robinson, and Doug Fister

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. Then the Rangers series happened. That series has only somewhat relieved my apprehensions about the offense. Nonetheless, the offense should improve with the return of Ryan...

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...

Watch Doug Fister celebrate first Nationals start by airmailing throw to first

What better way to celebrate your return from the DL and first start with a new team than with a wild, airmailed throw to first? Up above, a GIF by the great @md_dc of Doug Fister's wild,airmailed throw in the first inning Friday night in Oakland, which eventually cost him (and, you know, the Nationals) a run. I mean, even Doug Fister standing on Doug Fister's shoulders...

Nationals trade Doug Fister to Orioles for Steve Lombardozzi

According to sources, the Washington Nationals have traded Doug Fister to Baltimore for Steve Lombardozzi. Fister, who was traded by the Tigers to the Nationals in December for Lombardozzi, Ian Krol, and Robbie Ray and in a deal largely thought to be a steal by the Nationals, landed on the DL with a right lat strain on Saturday. Speaking to the media this morning, Nationals GM...
