Washington Nationals manager Jim Riggleman addressed his team today before the squad’s first full-team workouts. From accounts, it was the typical meet and greet, "let’s go out there and have a good year" pep talk, with some introductions and logistics thrown in.
But the skipper had some words to his team about raising and exceeding expectations as well.
From MASN.com’s Ben Goessling this Continue reading
"Sometimes when the same person keeps giving the message, it starts to fall on deaf ears." — Jim Riggleman, on his post-game meeting after a 6-5 loss to the Marlins on Sept. 11.

In the grand scheme of things, does it matter?
The Washington Nationals officially announced yesterday that field manager Jim Riggleman would be retained for the 2011 season, Continue reading
Earlier this summer, GM Mike Rizzo defended his manager, saying he expected to retain Jim Riggleman as manager for next season. But the Washington Nationals organization had failed to formalize it during the season.
Today, they took that necessary step, issuing a press release announcing that Riggleman will indeed return to manage the Washington Nationals for 2011. The entirety of the 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
"We’re just trying to get outs." — Jim Riggleman, on lifting Drew Storen in the ninth.
THE RESULT: This story should be about how the Washington Nationals came from behind with a seven-run eighth inning to defeat the Houston Astros 8-4. Or if could he about how John Lannan persevered to pitch seven strong innings after giving up three in the first inning.
It could even be about how Ivan Continue reading
"Sometimes when the same person keeps giving the message, it starts to fall on deaf ears." — Jim Riggleman, on his post-game meeting with the team.
The Washington Nationals have 19 games remaining in the 2010 season. If they win three of them, they will avoid losing 100 games for the third straight season. It’s little solace for Nats fans that harbored illusions of a wild-card berth when the Continue reading
"Nyjer, he’s hitting eighth there, but that’s his game. I can’t ask him to hit eighth but don’t run. I really thought that he’d get that base. The pitcher wasn’t real quick to the plate but the catcher made a great throw, and he got him. That’s Nyjer’s game, I can’t take that away from him." –Nationals Manager Jim Riggleman.
The Washington Nationals lost another game to the Florida Marlins. Continue reading
According to multiple sources, Washington Nationals outfielder Nyjer Morgan has been suspended eight games for his role in "three separate incidents" in the past week: initiating contact with St. Louis Cardinals catcher Bryan Anderson, inappropriate comments made to Florida Marlins fans on Tuesday night after he bowled into catcher Brett Hayes, and Wednesday night’s brawl and aftermath.
Morgan Continue reading
BULLET-POINT STYLE!It amazes me how many people are defending Nyjer Morgan for his actions in last night’s brawl. I understand you want your players to keep playing despite being down 11 runs, but stealing bases really isn’t about "winning". Stealing a base in that situation gives you about one-hundredth of a percent increase to your chance of winning. Morgan stealing second, then third, was Continue reading
I’m going to suspend my regular recap this evening because the game wasn’t much of a game. Scott Olsen was hammered in less than two innings, giving up nine earned runs on eight hits and two walks. Craig Stammen came in and wasn’t much better, going 3 1/3 innings and gave up six earned runs on five hits and two walks.
The game was over before it started.
The bigger story was Nyjer Morgan.
After Continue reading
