Adam LaRoche wins the 2012 NL Gold Glove at 1B. Up above, a shot of LaRoche sitting next to the only other Gold Glove winner in the brief history of the Washington Nationals. One of them made Steve McCatty laugh there (screencap via MASN/MLB.com). Ian Desmond was denied...despite Nats radio guy Charlie Slowes' best efforts on Twitter (love ya, Charlie!). Meanwhile,...

Hurricane Sandy Leon?

Truth be told, we were just looking for an excuse to use a "Hurricane Sandy Leon" headline. And so, while you're sitting around waiting for Hurricane Sandy and the Frankenstorm, let's revisit Nats' catching prospect Sandy Leon's first Major League hit in July off R.A. Dickey. Of course, Leon's first knock came just two months after he was removed from...

Xavier Nady is two wins away from a World Series ring

Nothing says "Fall Classic" like a Xavier Nady sighting prior to World Series Game 2. Pic above via @JohnJDevine. Seems like only yesterday Nady was a member of the Goon Squad and inspiration for ridiculous photoshops. Not that he didn't have his moments of personal glory with the Nationals, like that shaving cream pie to the face from Mike Morse after his 100th career...

Douoguih Howser

Sounds like Washington Nationals team doctor Dr. Wiemi Douoguih had a busy day today, eh? It seems a nickname might be in order for the good doctor. How about: Douoguih Howser? Anyway, Dr. Douoguih carved up two Nats today: Ryan Zimmerman had arthroscopic surgery on his bum right shoulder which was patched together with duct tape and cortisone shots since April, and Chad Tracy...

Ozzie, we hardly knew ya...

Our managerial search begins immediately and our hope is that a new manager, along with roster improvements, will restore a winning culture."

Good stuff - but not as good as that time back in August when Pence got laughed at by reporters for answering a question about what makes the Nationals so...

Oh, it's just Cutter Dykstra on the red carpet with Jamie Lynn Sigler, no biggie

We'd be remiss if we didn't mention a Nats minor leaguer on the E! News Thursday night. And there he was: Hagerstown's own Cutter Dykstra with his girlfriend Jamie Lynn Sigler on the red carpet for The 3rd Annual Autumn Party in LA benefiting the Children's Institute. Got it? E! News referred to Cutter as a Nat, and Jamie Lynn said this: "This is my boyfriend...

Davey Johnson probably doesn't give a rat's ass that Randy Knorr would've walked Kozma

So Randy Knorr, Davey Johnson's bench coach, admitted during a radio interview in Canada (590 The Fan in Toronto) that his only regret about NLDS Game 5 was that Pete Kozma got to hit in the 9th with Jason Motte on deck. Via Adam Kilgore of the Washington Post: "The only thing I kick myself about was, we had a chance to walk Kozma to get Cruz up to hit to get Motte...

...and on and on. You know. On a personal note, we're moving towards "Acceptance". Slowly. Who cares if Davey Johnson knew Jason Motte was on deck with Pete Kozma at the plate in the 9th inning of a 7-7 game and decided not to intentionally walk Kozma? Here, via Adam Kilgore of the Washington Post: Johnson said he considered walking Kozma. In the end, he believed...

Davey Johnson: "I don’t give a rat’s ass what anybody else thinks."

So, that settles it -- the Washington Post's Adam Kilgore finally got Davey Johnson to address the second guessing, and the upshot is that there is no second guessing Davey Johnson. Sorry, Drew Storen. Davey Johnson isn't willing to consider that he maybe made a mistake or two there in Game 5. Edwin Jackson? Davey doesn't give a rat's ass what you think. Not intentionally...

Apparently Bryce Harper grabbing his crotch after striking out in the 9th in Game 5 was a big deal

So Bryce Harper struck out on three pitches for the second out in the 9th inning of NLDS Game 5 against Cardinals closer Jason Motte. (Note: We had to go back and watch the video on MLB.TV to verify this and get the screen caps above, because, honestly, we've blocked out nearly everything that happened in that 9th inning from the ol' memory bank.

Stand up guy. Mike Wise of the Washington Post has a fairly painful-to-read account of Storen in the clubhouse after the game. Gut wrenching doesn...
