Gio Gonzalez meows through spring training interview

"2015 right meow looks great." Indeed. Nothing more to say about this one. Deadspin counted 10 "meows" by Gio during his interview with MASN's Dan Kolko; we counted at least 50. Scherzer was keeping his own count.   (Screencap via MLB.com video)

Eyes on it. #TonyTwoBags #Nats pic.twitter.com/MSVh3nmm4T — Washington Nationals (@Nationals) February 24, 2015 Forget Danny Espinosa's Fu Manchu; get a load of Anthony Rendon's big hair. Some serious moss coming out of #TonyTwoBags' cap this spring. @Taylor_Michael3 no longer rocking the flat top.

Watch Bryce Harper's NLDS Game 4 home run into McCovey Cove one more time (Video)

Might as well watch Bryce Harper's game-tying home run from Game 4 splash down in McCovey Cove one more time. Not that it mattered, but for a few minutes there, it felt like the series was turning. It wasn't meant to be. Splash: Dive! (Screencaps via MLB.com video)

The epitaph of the 2014 Washington Nationals reads as follows:

Here lies the body of the 2014 Washington Nationals. NL East Champs. Best record in the NL. Bounced from the playoffs in the NLDS again. It should've been different. The good news is: there's always next year. How many days until pitchers and catchers report? (See also our 2013, 2011, and 2010 Nationals gravestones)

Stand Pat Matt

When the going got tough, Matt Williams stuck with his regular season script. Why Thornton and Barrett in the 7th? "Because those are our 7th inning guys." The good news is: Strasburg, Storen, Clippard, and Stammen will be well rested for Spring Training. Video of Matt Williams' NLDS Game 4 postgame presser below. Let the second-guessing continue.

The End

Joe Panik scored the winning run after Aaron Barrett's wild pitch with the bases loaded in the 7th. Giants 3, Nationals 2: Stand pat Matt and the punchless Nats punch their ticket to the offseason. Silver lining: no soul crushing Game 5 loss this year. Plenty of heaping slices of blame pie to go around. But this sort of sums up the series: When a graphic is worth a...

#Nats good luck charm, back for Game 4: pic.twitter.com/B7WJZ76hHG — Tom Schad (@Tom_Schad) October 7, 2014 Remember that lucky Maneki-neko that appeared in the Nats dugout before NLDS Game 3? It's back, apparently ready to pick up the phone in case Stephen Strasburg needs to be called in from the bullpen to relieve Gio. Whatever works. (Image via Washington Times' @Tom_Schad)

Doug Fister and Bryce Harper did not coordinate their outfits for NLDS Game 3 postgame presser

And so, Doug Fister and Bryce Harper were brilliant and spectacular in no particular order for NLDS Game 3 Monday night in SF. So they get a pass for their clashing fashion statements during their postgame presser. Nats have a pulse. (Screencap via MLBNetwork/TV)
