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...

Watch: Asdrubal Cabrera’s behind-the-back throw to start double play

Your browser does not support iframes. Asdrubal Cabrera is proving to be a great pickup by Nationals general manager Mike Rizzo. Cabrera has fit right in at second base next to Ian Desmond. He has made a series of web gem plays, but none may have been more impressive than his behind-the-back throw to Desmond to start a 4-6-3 double play in the eighth inning. Cabrera was able to get...

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...

Nationals Injury Update: Ian Desmond exits after HBP

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...
