He plays the game the right way and the hard way. The Toronto Blue Jays drafted Goins in the 4th Round...

Picked third overall in 2010 behind a guy named Bryce Harper, Machado was set to join Cal Ripken among baseball’s best offensive shortstops.

Could The Nationals Be Turning It Around?

Coming into 2015, the Washington Nationals were the one team that nearly everyone thought was going to make the playoffs.
