Lose this game and the Redskins are immediately regulated to NFL purgatory along with Oakland and Jacksonville. Good luck! How are they favored by five, BTW?

Ranking All 40 of the 2014 Washington Nationals

We were going to do a Winners & Losers-style post for the NL East champs, but I think this is a little more inclusive. There’s not much rhyme or reason to it, other than ranking the players based on who made the most positive impact this year. Enjoy. 40. Taylor Jordan — Was a member of the Opening Day rotation (filling in for Doug Fister), then went 0-3 with a 5.61 ERA in...

Mr. Irrelevant Classic: The Nats’ Opening Night In D.C.

Sometimes we republish stuff on this blog from the first iteration of Mr. Irrelevant, which was hosted by AOL Journals and is no longer available on the Internet. This is one of those cases, as I don’t feel like writing about the Nats’ NLDS loss to the Giants. Instead, let’s remember their first night in D.C. This was originally published April 15, 2005. My family has lived...

Redskins-Seahawks Winners & Losers

Handing out labels following Skins games, this time a 27-17 MNF loss to Seattle. Winners Kirk Cousins — If you compare this to his last outing he looked like Joe Montana. Any way you cut it, 283 yards, two TDs and no picks against Seattle ain’t bad. That first bomb to DeSean Jackson (above) was like a ray of sunshine in monsoon season. DeSean Jackson — His 157 receiving yards...

Orioles-Tigers ALDS Winners & Losers

Handing out labels following Baltimore’s opening-round sweep of Detroit.

He now has 16 HRs in 37 career playoff games and slash lined .500/.500/1.000 for the series. Buck Showalter – Pulled all...

Nats-Giants NLDS Game 2 Winners & Losers

Handing out labels following the longest game in MLB playoff history, an 18-inning, six hour-and-23 minute-loss to San Francisco. Winners Jordan Zimmermann — Fresh off of a no-hitter, he came within one out of a shutout in a near-must-win playoff situation. What a stud. Anthony Rendon — Started off 4-4, driving in the Nats only run. Also stole a base and played sharp at third...

Is D.C. a Baseball Town Now?

The guest post parade marches on! Here with a look at which team owns D.C. is Mr. Irrelevant contributing writer Bryan Frantz. Is Washington, D.C. a baseball town now? No, not quite. But D.C. is not nearly the football city it’s historically been. Fans aren’t necessarily shifting away from the Redskins; instead, it seems they’re paying more attention to the other teams. The...

Musings of a Drunk Redskins Fan

Here with a guest post for correctly predicting that the Redskins would destroy Jacksonville (those were the days!) is Mr. Irrelevant reader SiPhi, who may have been overserved.

The Top 5 Nats and O’s Celebration Vines Taken By Chris Mottram

I was pretty excited to watch both the Nats and O’s possibly clinch their respective division championships last night. What ended up happening, though, is I fell asleep on the couch after putting the kids to bed, and woke up well past the Nats party and just as the O’s party was getting underway. Thankfully, my brother Chris only has one kid, not three, so he was able to stay...
