Dramatic Pirates fan was star of the game with the Nationals

During Sunday night’s Pirates-Nationals game at Nationals Park, the Root Sports cameras kept cutting to a young Pirates fan in the front row that experienced a vast array of emotions during the evening. He went from anger, to sadness, to elation, and back to utter depression when Scott Hairston’s walk off sac fly ended the game. Poor guy. We’ve all been there before. It’s alright, buddy.

Miami Marlins inch closer to pennant and wild card races

MIAMI -- Meaningful games bring forth scrutiny. It's easy to second guess strategy with hindsight.  During the decisive three-run eighth inning of the Miami Marlins' 4-3 loss to the Washington Nationals Wednesday afternoon, some may have questioned manager Mike Redmond moves. Lefty Brad Hand, who had thrown only 91 pitches through seven frames, went out to begin the eighth...

It's time to move the MLB trade deadline

The trade deadline is in eight days. Thus far, we’ve seen the Cubs trade away Scott Feldman, the Cubs trade away Scott Hairston, the Cubs trade away Matt Garza, and most recently, the Cubs getting close to trading away Alfonso Soriano. Okay, sure, the Marlins traded Ricky Nolasco too, but you would not be wrong to suggest that it has seemed for most of July that exactly one team...

2012 Mets Castoffs Have Not Had Much Success In ’13

The Nationals Add Scott Hairston, Nifty Role Player

When a player hitting .172 with a .232 on base percentage is traded for an A-ball pitching prospect, it usually doesn’t generate big headlines. So, you can be forgiven if you haven’t paid a ton of attention to the most recent trade between the Nationals and Cubs, which sent outfielder Scott Hairston to Washington and Ivan Pineyro to the Cubs, plus a pair of PTBNLs, with one...

Nationals acquire Scott Hairston from Cubs

In a move designed to bolster their outfield depth and provide some offense in case injuries strike, the Washington Nationals reportedly have acquired Scott Hairston from the Chicago Cubs.  Hairston has been a journeyman player of sorts in his career.  He is often used to plug holes and fill voids.  In this case, he will likely be a stop gap if the injury cycle continues in Washington...

Just like when the Mets picked Hairston off the scrap heap, Byrd is doing his best to impersonate Hairston while playing a little bit above his head. Through 57 games, Byrd has posted a more...
