IAN DESMOND RUMORS & GOSSIP

Rolling out the early-season MLB ‘jump to conclusions’ mat

Yes, it’s early. We’re just into the second week of the 2015 MLB season, and most teams have 155 games left to play. But after five months without meaningful baseball, it’s easy to react to what we’ve seen early on and form early impressions based on that. It takes a bit of time to reacquaint ourselves with baseball’s long marathon. Personally, I think it takes a little...

On Ian Desmond’s Defense & Walk Year

Ian Desmond turns 30 this coming September. “Hey, let me run out and get him a funny card about how he’s over the hill!” you might say, not realizing that’s actually not funny for baseball players. This is noteworthy because Desmond is in the last year of a contract with the Washington Nationals, and is a player who provides power at a […]

Washington Nationals: Predicting the starting lineup for Opening Day

Ryan Zimmerman The Washington Nationals have a lot to live up to this season and the hype is completely warranted. They are coming off a NL East championship win and even though they didn’t make it far in the playoffs, losing to the San Francisco Giants in game four, they left hungry for next season. Currently the Nationals’ roster is somewhat flexible with players such as Anthony...

Washington Nationals player profile: Ian Desmond

Ian Desmond With all the talk of the Washington Nationals picking up Max Scherzer, we can’t forget about the other Nationals’ players who are essential to a 2015 postseason appearance. Ian Desmond in particular has been a crucial factor to the National’s past winning seasons. The shortstop has been with Washington since his debut in 2009 and has been a vital contributor to...

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. Apparently Rockies manager Walt Weiss didn't read the scouting report: Desi!! @IanDesmond20, who is now 6-for-6 with the bases loaded this season,...

Ian Desmond got into the Montreal Expos nostalgia tonight

So there was baseball in Montreal on Friday night, albeit exhibition baseball between the Mets and Blue Jays, and lots of nostalgic talk of the Expos making the rounds. And so, it only makes sense that Ian Desmond (drafted by Montreal in 2004) got into the spirit (photo via @IanDesmond20) All these expos hats got me goin down memory lane. #OG pic.twitter.com/64prGWanmn ...
