IAN DESMOND RUMORS & GOSSIP

The Mariners turned down a Zimmermann/Desmond trade

In the piece, Rosenthal casually mentions that the Nationals offered both Jordan Zimmermann and Ian Desmond to the Seattle Mariners for Taijuan Walker and Brad Miller. If you don’t think that’s crazy enough, consider this – the Mariners rejected the trade. The Nats...

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 ...
