In today’s 5-4 loss to the San Diego Padres, the Washington Nationals failed physically when presented with opportunities on multiple occasions, but also made several mental mistakes that added to the frustration of watching an imminently winnable game slip away.
Manager Jim Riggleman insists his team is playing good, clean baseball. But when runners are making outs on the base paths and hitting Continue reading
This was just about how you would expect a game between the two worst offenses in the league to go. The Washington Nationals and San Diego Padres combined for three runs, seven hits and five walks, but the biggest hit of all was the very last one.
On the first pitch in the bottom of the ninth, red-hot slugger Michael Morse took Mike Adams’ flat 89-MPH slider deep into the visitors’ bullpen, Continue reading

ORIOLES WIN THE RUBBER MATCH ON SUNDAY 2-1
Leading off the game, Nationals center fielder Roger Bernadina laid down a perfect bunt right in between first base and the pitcher’s mound and reached first base with ease. But as he ran past the bag, home plate umpire Todd Tichneor ruled that Bernadina stepped on home plate to bunt and was out.
Roger Bernadina was 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
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.
Today’s three-hit, 1-0 loss to Dillon Gee, Tim Byrdak and Francisco Rodriguez is just the latest example of the Nationals’ struggles all season long to muster any sort of Continue reading
"You know, it’s a game of inches sometimes." — Nats manager Jim Riggleman
Washington, D.C. — Sean Burnett has been one of manager Jim Riggleman’s most trusted relievers the last two seasons, getting his job done many more nights than not. In the ninth inning last night, it was a "not."
Burnett gave up three straight singles to start the inning to load the bases and, with Drew Storen warmed up Continue reading
The Washington Nationals committed two errors in both of their last two games, both losses to division boss Philadelphia Phillies. For the season, the Nats have 11 errors in 12 games, second to last in the majors. The team fielding percentage is third to last. They are also third to last in number of double plays turned. Add it all up, and you get a pretty good idea of just how mediocre this Continue reading
What a difference a day makes.
After being shut out opening day on just five hits, the Washington Nationals bats woke up, pounding out 10 hits, including their first home run of the season, and defeated the Atlanta Braves 6-3, before 21,941 at Nationals Park.
Rick Ankiel homered and drove in a run on a suicide squeeze play for an insurance run in the seventh to lead the Nats hitters.
John Lannan Continue reading
According to a tweet from Bill Ladson of MLB.com, the center field battle has lost a competitor, as he reports that the job has come down to the incumbent, Nyjer Morgan, and off-season free agent acquisition Rick Ankiel.
Either Roger Bernadina is slated to be the fourth outfielder, or he will find his way to Triple-A Syracuse, a victim of the fact he has an option remaining.
Morgan, 30, and Continue reading
I generally don’t like to critique other people’s writing in this space. I do a lot of that in private, and it’s a good way to make sure what I write is at least halfway relevant and up to date.
But what’s the point of having a blog — especially one that describes itself as being "dedicated to the constructive criticism of the Washington Nationals" — and not commenting when something grabs Continue reading
