Maybe a trip 45 miles north on I-95 to Baltimore was just what the Washington Nationals needed. In their first interleague game of 2011, against their American League "geographic rivals", Continue reading
The Washington Nationals have not scored since the seventh inning of Monday’s 4-2 win over the Pittsburgh Pirates. The scoreless streak spans three days, 19 innings and two shut out losses to the injury-depleted New York Mets.

There are a lot of studies out there that suggest that the anecdotal concept of "clutch" does not really exist. As emotional beings, fans tend to remember the good (a player coming through with runners in scoring position or in a big situation) and tend to forget the equal number of times that player has failed.
Some of the more celebrated "clutch" players in history, statistics-wise, were no Continue reading

There’s a trite expression that says (insert sport here) is a game of inches. Twice last night in extra innings we saw evidence that the axiom still applies to Major League Baseball.
Pinch-hitter Michael Morse missed a home run to the deepest part of the ballpark by mere inches in the bottom of the tenth with two outs and was forced to settle for a double. He was stranded there when Jerry Continue reading
With Thursday night’s crushing 6-5 loss to the Atlanta Braves, the Washington Nationals record is one game below .500 at 18-19.
