Gio strikes out a dozen Mets (Video)

"It’s not how you start; it’s how you finish." (Gio Gonzalez, via Washington Post, 9/26/2014) Up above, highlights of Gio Gonzalez's brilliant, 7 inning, 12 K, 1 hit, performance last night, helping the Nats earn a doubleheader split with the Mets.

The Washington Nationals (93-65) haven’t yet announced their playoff rotation, but on Thursday night Gio Gonzalez made his case to secure his place in it.

Gio Gonzalez and Matt WIlliams enjoy a heated conversation (Video)

Wasn't it Jayson Werth who said on Thursday, "We don't have time for bullsh*t"? Apparently Gio Gonzalez didn't get the memo. And so, Gio Gonzalez wasn't happy when Matt Williams pulled him in the 7th inning: first, Gio slammed the ball into his manager's hand. Then the two continued to have an animated discussion in the dugout, which continued in the...

Strasburg sets Nationals single-season strikeout record

Stephen Strasburg has struggled this season to stay consistent on the mound. He entered Saturday with a 10-10 record and a 3.59 ERA, his worst of his five-year career. Already he has allowed a career-worst 70 runs and 21 home runs. Each outing is like night and day for him. One moment he dominates and in others he can’t get much going. But, one thing that has been a constant for...

Washington Nationals: Looking forward the second half

The second half of the Major League Baseball has already began in more ways than one. The 81 game mark was passed a couple of weeks ago, and each team has played one series since finishing the all-star break.

WATCH: Gio Gonzalez flips on teammate, has to be restrained

Up above, video of Gio Gonzalez flipping out in the dugout after giving up seven runs in the first two innings of Sunday's start in Oakland (final line: 4.1 IP, 9 H, 7 R, 3 BB, 4 K, 2 HR). Ugly.

Nationals' Gio Gonzalez helps high schooler ask girl to prom

Georgetown Prep high school senior Nick Rolle’s list of potential prom dates consisted of one name — his girlfriend Lauren Thomas. But apparently having a girlfriend doesn’t mean you can slack on extending an invite to the big dance, because Rolle went all out. Rolle is fortunately enough to have a connection to the Washington Nationals. […]

Nationals Coach Was In Playgirl, So Naturally The Players Make T-Shirts To Honor Him

Well, this is something that I never thought I would be writing about: Photographic evidence that your coach posed for Playgirl in the 80’s.
