DREW STOREN RUMORS & GOSSIP

Washington Nationals: offseason pitching debates

Tyler Clippard In the past few seasons, the Washington Nationals have built up a pitching staff and bullpen to be proud of. Stephen Strasburg and Jordan Zimmermann are just a couple of the pitchers on the Nationals’ staff that contributed to the NL East win and the trip to the post season. Not to say that there weren’t any pitching hiccups in the Nationals’ postseason appearance...

Nats' Storen, others get 2nd chance in postseason

WASHINGTON (AP) Three years ago, Drew Storen was the confident, young closer for the Washington Nationals, a first-round draft pick who saved 43 games. Two years ago, he needed elbow surgery in April, worked his way back into the last-guy-on-the-mound job by the time the playoffs rolled around, then allowed a ninth-inning lead to become a 9-7 loss in Game 5 of the NL division series...

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 need to be on...

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...

No Drama Drew

Drew Storen closed out the Braves with 7 pitches last night. Nationals 6, Braves 4: Script flipped. So much for the Braves owning the Nationals, and so much for that closer by committee concept: Adam LaRoche keeps on hitting, and Drew Storen nails down save in 9th with 7 pitches. NL East lead expands to 9 games, magic number drops to 10. Here's to hoping Ian Desmond's back...

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 long: ...

Drew Storen and Craig Stammen get their laces snipped (Video)

Up above, video of Friday night's controversy in which Drew Storen and Craig Stammen had to have the laces snipped on their gloves. Apparently the request did not come from the Brewers, but was made by Home Plate umpire Chad Fairchild, who was enforcing a new MLB directive. Stupid rules. Brewers beat the Nats 4-2. Williams said the umps, not the Brewers, were the ones asking...
