Ian Desmond Nationals – Photo Credit – Keith Allison   The Washington Nationals offense is at full strength,  meaning they have all their players in the right positions in the lineup spots that they want them at.

Could the Washington Nationals trade for a shortstop?

I recently said that the Washington Nationals should not consider making a major trade at this year’s deadline. However, a recent rumor regarding General Manager Mike Rizzo’s potential plans may have changed my mind. The Nationals may need a shortstop. Not a shortstop who would immediately replace Ian Desmond, but someone who could replace him if he decides to leave the organization...

Video: Ian Desmond makes Rockies pay

Disrespected! Up above, Ian Desmond makes the Rockies pay for intentionally walking Bryce Harper ahead of him to load the bases in the sixth inning. Desmond's bases-clearing double gave the Nats a 5-2 lead in an eventual 7-3 win.
