All Systems Gio

Video: Jordan Zimmermann's assassin-like 3 strikeout 7th inning

Jayson Werth may have saved the day in Game 4 with his walk-off bomb, but Nats pitching carried the day. Ross Detwiler was great for six, and then Jordan Zimmermann, Tyler Clippard, and Drew Storen turned in three scoreless. But it was Jordan Zimmermann, making his first relief appearance as a big leaguer, who was most impressive: a downright electric 12-pitch, 9-strike, 3 K, performance...

The Storen Family dog still has #Natitude...

After two deflating losses in a row, and the Nats on the brink of elimination, our own Natitude is admittedly waning. But something about the photo Drew Storen's Mom (@PamStoren) posted on Twitter this afternoon (above) gave us a renewed sense of hope. No pressure, Nats. Go win a ballgame today and force Game 5.

Det Row

No pressure, Ross. Just the season hanging in the balance. But really, aren't you more concerned about the bats in NLDS Game 4 than you are with what Ross Detwiler does today? Meanwhile, our Det Row headline lifted from Natstradamus, where where @ouij points out that James Wagner's story in the Washington Post on Detwiler's Game 4 start is eerily similar to the...

Bryce Harper on his red contact lenses: "I could stare straight at the sun and I had no problem."

Did you hear? Of course you did: Bryce Harper wore red contact lenses during NLDS Game 3. The red lenses didn't help the cause at the plate, but at least they provided some relief in Harper's fight against the D.C. Sun Monster. Here's Harper, via Washington Post, talking about one benefit of his red eyes: "In center, I could stare straight at the sun and I had...

An encore performance of Michael Morse singing "Take on Me"

Well, now that the guys in A-ha are aware that Michael Morse is using "Take on me" as his walkup music, and an entire stadium has adopted the song as their "thing", we'd be remiss if we didn't repost the video above of Michael Morse singing "Take on Me" last August on MLB Network's Intentional Talk.

Just be glad Andy Feffer didn't go with #Natitude ThunderStix

When word got around earlier today that the Nats would be handing out red rally towels to every man, woman, child, and beast entering Nationals Park for NLDS Game 3, we mostly felt a sense of relief.  Raise your hand if you had this nagging fear that Nats COO Andy Feffer was about to foist Natitude Thunderstix on Nats fans upon entering Nationals Park for the first baseball playoff...

Video: Bryce Harper's ill-advised attempt to advance to third on Matt Holliday's pathetic throw

"Sometimes you’ve got to roll the dice." (Bryce Harper, via Washington Times, 10/8/2012) "Well, that's inexperience, too. Had a little rally going there and he was in scoring position and he tried to get to third, and that kind of killed the rally we had going. Again, that's just a little inexperience.
