RG III sighting at PETCO Park during Nats-Padres game

A Robert Griffen III sighting on MASN between innings of Thursday night's Nats-Padres game at PETCO Park? Yes, on a poster held up by some guys in Redskins gear. Padres 2, Nationals 1: Alas, RG III unavailable to inject some pop in the Nats offense. Werth's bomb (video here) not enough. Four game win streak halted, Tyler Clippard can't hold on in the 8th. ...

Stephen Strasburg welcomes RG III to DC...

And here's Stephen Strasburg talking RG III via MASNSports.com's Byron Kerr: "You don't see too many quarterbacks that have all the tools that he has. It's not just the tools for the quarterback position, it is the tools of an athlete. He is a world-class runner. He can throw the ball and he is not...

Leave it to a Phillies fan to find a problem with Nats giving away tickets to local military members...

Philly sports blog CrossingBroad had a, well, very Philadelphian reaction to news that the Nationals were making it possible for season ticket holders who can't use their tickets to next weekend's "Take Back the Park" series to donate them to military members. (Note: love or hate the #Ourpark campaign, and the goofy Natitude campaign, and Andy Feffer using "...

Here's Stephen Strasburg shagging fly balls with a catcher's mitt during batting practice.

Is that a catcher's mitt? Stephen Strasburg (seen in these screen caps via MASN/TV) has nothing on Nationals owner Mark Lerner in the "shagging fly balls during BP in a full Nats uni" department. But at least Stras didn't get hit in the nose. Befriend the Nats Enquirer on Facebook. Follow us on Twitter.

Surprise! Look who's not in the Nats starting lineup playing third base tonight...

The shot above of Mike Morse photobombing Ryan Zimmerman following yet another walkoff by Mr. Walkoff in 2010 is perfectly appropriate for the news that Zim is not in the Nats starting lineup tonight in San Diego. Seems like only Saturday Zim was saying stuff like this his sore shoulder: "It’s nothing. It’s something that I could have played through. It’s been...

Video: Wang affair exposed, as seen on TV in Taiwain.

It has been a banner day for Wang jokes, after news broke of a press conference held yesterday by Chien-Ming Wang to apologize for an extramarital affair he started while rehabbing with the Nats.

Ryan Zimmerman's shoulder looked fine signing autographs in his Bentley on Saturday

Here's video (via AllStarsPlus) of Ryan Zimmerman signing autographs for fans after the Nationals walk-off win on Saturday. His shoulder looked good there. Apparently that was Rick Ankiel laying on his horn at the end of the clip. Zim, of course, was a late scratch on Saturday because of a sore shoulder.  So, we're trying to take a more positive, panic-free, approach...

Nationals 2, Marlins 0: Rick Ankiel did everything but pitch (3-3, solo HR, RBI, 2 runs, laser cannon arm, glove, baserunning), and the Nats just keep rolling along.

Video of Bryce Harper sort of getting heckled by AAA-Phillies fans

Here's a video of Bryce Harper getting heckled while playing CF in a game last weekend against the Lehigh Valley Iron Pigs (Triple-A affiliate of the Phillies). "Nice stirrups, Nyjer" is apparently the best these AAA-Phillies fans could come up with. Harper has certainly heard worse; and he will hear worse.
