DREW STOREN RUMORS & GOSSIP

One Man’s Trash: Storen Up Saves

I remember the first time I beat Blades of Steel on my Nintendo. It was a labor of love and the sappy midi-tune during the credits nearly brought my 10-year-old eyes to tears. Frankly, not much has changed since then. I'm still chasing that feeling of "beating the game" by managing fantasy baseball teams throughout the long season. It's the final push and all hands...

Assessing Drew Storen’s Rise Back to Closer

It seems like forever ago, but it was really just 2011. That was the year Drew Storen saved 43 games for Washington. It was just his second MLB season, and the highly-touted prospect had seemingly asserted himself as one of baseball’s best shutdown relievers. Then Storen injured his elbow in 2012 and he’s barely seen the ninth inning since. From the beginning of 2012 until today...

Nationals have their answer – Storen should close games

Photo Credit: washingtonpost.com Remember last Friday, when the Nationals lost in extra innings to Philadelphia? Remember when Washington manager Matt Williams stated he would “address” the late-inning closer role? Remember how Saturday Williams said he would consider different relievers, based on situation? Fast-forward to Sunday afternoon – the Nationals leading by a solitary...

Oh, hey, Drew Storen is the Nats closer again.

Drew Storen strikes out Ryan Howard to close out Sunday's win. Enough of this closer by committee talk: this is Drew Storen's job now. Nationals 3, Phillies 2: Adam LaRoche hits a pair of home runs, Scott Hairson does something, and Drew Storen is closer again. All is right with the world. And here's video of Storen talking after his first save in who knows how...

Will the Washington Nationals trade a reliever?

At has long been rumored that the Washington Nationals may trade one of their backend relievers at the end of the year. As things have not worked as expected in the later innings, the Nationals are almost left with no choice but to move one of Drew Storen, Tyler Clippard, or Rafael Soriano. The National’s top reliever has undoubtably been Tyler Clippard making him someone the franchise...

Drew Storen loses his job, gets a raise.

Nationals and Drew Storen agree to 1-year, $2.5 Million deal, avoid quite possibly the worst arbitration hearing ever. So on the same day Mike Rizzo revealed that Drew Storen had lost his closing job to Rafael Soriano, Storen got a $2 Million raise and as a bonus got to avoid an arbitration hearing that likely would have led to even more hurt feelings. Timing is everything....

Drew Storen returns, 2+ weeks later...

Drew Storen made his first appearance of 2012 for the Washington Nationals on July 19. But Storen really, really returned on Sunday, recording his first save of 2012 (video here): "It was a lot of fun, especially pitching for a first-place team in that situation. Doesn’t get much better than that." (Drew Storen, via Washington Post, 8/5/2012) Here's video...

Nationals pitcher Drew Storen has a new nickname: Tinkerbell

Depending on how much of a trend-setter Nationals manager Davey Johnson is, Washington relief pitcher Drew Storen could be in for a long season of harassment. I have never actually seen Storen pitch, but apparently he has a unique delivery — so unique that Johnson has decided the nickname “Tinkerbell” would suit his right-hander. “I’m going to start calling him Tinkerbell...
