Mets Aren’t The Only Ones In Division Touting Playoffs

The Mets aren’t the only ones in the division talking about stacked rotations, October baseball and winning a championship. On Wednesday, Bryce Harper of the Nationals did some touting of his own. “It’s absolutely stupid how good our staff is. To add a Cy Young, to add a guy that’s unbelievable in the postseason — if you have to go into a five-game set in the postseason...

Washington Nationals Spring Training Preview: Rotation

Has Nationals General Manager Mike Rizzo accumulated the best starting rotation in the history of baseball? The four 20-game winners from Baltimore days past have the numbers, but the 2015 Washington rotation has the most talent. Rizzo had to forfeit the Nats first round pick in this summer’s MLB draft with the signing of free agent supreme Max Scherzer, a steal of a deal indeed...

Right workout regimen could help Krol help Tigers all season

DETROIT -- If one player personified the Tigers' up-and-down season last year, it was Ian Krol. Krol, 23, is the only one remaining from the deal that sent starter Doug Fister to the Washington Nationals. Left-hander Robbie Ray and infielder Steve Lombardozzi Jr. also came to the Tigers in the trade, but have both since been traded again -- Ray to the Arizona Diamondbacks, and Lombardozzi...

Which Nats Starter Is The Best: Doug Fister

This post is the final installment of a series we’ve been running here on The Nats Blog, debating which of the club’s stellar five (Sorry Roark) starting pitchers is actually the best. On Monday I made an argument that Max Scherzer was the team’s top hurler, only to be countered by Joe who on Tuesday claimed Stephen Strasburg was the best. Andrew made his arguments for Jordan...

Which Nats Starter Is The Best: Max Schezer

Over the next five days here on The Nats Blog, you will see one post arguing which of the Nats starters is in fact the best on the team. One post for each of the club’s five rotation hurlers (Sorry Roark).   What’s amazing is that there are very few teams that could even have an argument like this, and most that can are more similar to the 2008 Washington Nationals, where any...

The Case For Keeping Zimmermann and Fister

Following the Nationals’ 7-year, $210 million agreement with free agent starter Max Scherzer, questions arise as to what the team will do with its otherworldly pitching depth.

Nationals Build Potential Super-Team, Add Max Scherzer

Here’s maybe the simplest way to put this: a season ago, by his peripherals, Tanner Roark was about a three-win pitcher. By his actual runs allowed, he was about a five-win pitcher. He actually finished with a higher RA9-WAR than Jordan Zimmermann and Doug Fister and a lot of other guys too. At present, the […]
