IAN DESMOND RUMORS & GOSSIP

After successful weekend of baseball, Nats look to expand division lead

Coming off a ten game winning streak that was snapped by the SF Giants, the Nationals looked to get back on track with a three game weekend series against the Giants. They did that.  Successfully. The Nats took two out of three from the Giants and expanded their division lead from seven to eight games.  Yesterday’s win over the Giants was a depiction of how powerful and explosive...

Ian Desmond's five-hit night (Video)

Up above, video of all five of Ian Desmond's hits last night in Denver. Pretty nice little Monday for Desmond (5-5, HR, 2 RBI). Nationals the beat Rockies 7-2, take over sole possession of first place in the NL East with the win and a Braves loss.

Desmond helps power Nats to 7-2 win over Rockies

The Washington Nationals hammered Colorado Rockies’ pitching for thirteen hits and seven runs on the way to a 7-2 series opening win for the Nats.  Five of those thirteen hits came from SS Ian Desmond.

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...

Washington Nationals: Grading the first half of the season

Throughout the first third of the 2014 season the Washington Nationals have experienced a variety of highs and lows while managing to stay in the thick of the NL East race. Currently, the Nationals are tied with the Atlanta Braves and Miami Marlins for the division lead.

Ian Desmond on his #EatFace grand slam: "Tasted pretty good, to be honest."

Nationals 6, Phillies 2: Ian Desmond's first career grand slam in the 11th was so great, we almost forgot just how fantastic Gio was (7 IP, 2 H, 2 R, 2 BB, 11 K, 108 pitches). And after Jayson Werth's "eat somebody's face" comments after Tuesday night's loss... Jayson Werth certainly hasn't lost confidence or resolve: "We gotta show up...

Ian Desmond - regression candidate?

I participated Sunday night in my first ever fantasy mock draft with the folks from MLB Dirt and others noted for their skills in that realm. As such, I was a bit of a saltwater fish trying to adapt to a freshwater pond. I was pretty high on my shortstop, Ian Desmond, until I started to dig this morning into his numbers a little more closely. Once I did, his 2012 numbers looked...
