Danny Espinosa’s two-homer night fueled Nats 10-2 win over Phillies. (C.Nichols/Nats News Network)
It’s nights like last night that make the previous two weeks worth of losses that much tougher to take. It certainly explains manager Jim Riggleman’s insistence that the Washington Nationals are a better ball club than they’ve shown this season.
Behind two home runs by rookie second baseman Danny Continue reading

NATIONALS BATS COME ALIVE, SCORE RECORD 17 RUNS IN WIN OVER ORIOLES
There was a lot of this going on for the Nationals last night. (C.Nichols/Nats News Network)
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
Danny Espinosa is congratulated by Laynce Nix on his two-run homer. (C.Nichols/Nats News Network)
Washington Nationals rookie second baseman Danny Espinosa has really been struggling, hitting just .128/.255/.310 in the month of May. In his first two at bats, hitting right-handed, be drove a ball to the track and scorched a line drive, but both times the ball fell into center fielder Andrew Continue reading
In a lot of ways, Danny Espinosa is not a prototypical leadoff hitter. He’s never hit for a high average (career .270 in minors), is not what one would consider a "speedster" (70 percent SB%), and has always had enough pop for folks to think he could thrive in a production spot lower in the order (career .455 slugging).
But he does have a good idea of plate discipline (career .365 OBP in minors) Continue reading
The Washington Nationals couldn’t get much offense going last night, managing just six hits off six New York Mets pitchers, en route to a 5-2 loss in Grapefruit League play before 6,646 at Digital Domain Park in Port St. Lucie, FL.
But the big news — which could have been catastrophic — was that Danny Espinosa fouled a ball of fhis right foot and had to be helped by team trainers into the Continue reading
If the Washington Nationals are going to pick up wins over their final record in 2010, it’s going to come from the progression of the starting pitching, which was near the bottom of all statistical categories in a campaign where they won 69 games.
So far this spring, the starters are getting the job done, and today in Jupiter, FL Jason Marquis added to the list of impressive outings by the Continue reading
Nationals second baseman Danny Espinosa will undergo surgery tomorrow in Baltimore to remove the hook of the hamate bone in his right wrist. The surgery will be performed by Dr. Ken Means at the Curtis National Hand Center.
It is the same surgery that… Continue reading
Pre-game thoughts, BULLET-POINT STYLE!Manager Jim Riggleman made some interesting obsevations in his pre-game press conference this morning. He said that Scott Olsen was done, that trying to warm up the other day he just had too many "aches and pains" in his shoulder, and that "this bullpen situation just isn’t working for Scott." He said Olsen needs a good 15 minutes or so to get warmed up, Continue reading
THE RESULT: Tell the truth. When you found out Ryan Zimmerman and Adam Dunn weren’t in the lineup, you kinda gave up on this one, didn’t you?
That is, until Michael Morse launched his 13th home run of the season leading off the bottom of the second inning to tie the game at one. But even then you still weren’t totally convinced.
But then, in the sixth inning, the Washington Nationals scored Continue reading
THE RESULT: In his short Major League career thus far, Danny Espinosa has developed a flare for the dramatic.
Tonight, before an announced 12,213 at steamy Nats Park, the 23-year old second baseman hit a go-ahead two-run home run in the bottom of the seventh, leading the Washington Nationals over the Houston Astros 4-3.
The win is the second straight for the Nats over Houston. Washington came Continue reading
