Adam Dunn tosses his helmet after another strikeout. (C.Nichols/Nats News Network)
Adam Dunn is no longer property of the Washington Nationals for two simple reasons:
1) The organization decided the expense — in terms of amount of money and length of contract — was not worth the risk on a decidedly flawed player.
2) Dunn and his agent were convinced that on the open market he could sign Continue reading

So there’s news tonight from Denver that the Rockies have re-upped Jorge de la Rosa, left handed starting pitcher, to a three-year, $30-plus million contract. The 30-year old hurler is just the latest free agent pitcher to remove himself from the market before getting into any meaningful negotiations with the Washington Nationals.
Not that I espoused signing de la Rosa. Far from it. But many Continue reading
Can the Washington Nationals take a step back record-wise in 2011 and still progress as a team? It’s an interesting question to ponder. Because as things stand right now, it looks more and more likely the team the Nats field next season will be filled with the same questions as last season. Or worse.
It’s clear now that first baseman Adam Dunn won’t return to the Nationals. This has been Continue reading
Over at MASN.com last week, Ben Goessling had some interesting ideas about improving Major League Baseball’s playofffs and bettering the game as a whole. You should definitely check out his thoughts and the comments to his post in conjunction with this column.
Ben’s inspiration for his post was the fact that the cruddy Monday Night Football game between Tennessee and Jacksonville outdrew the 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
"We have to get our jobs done. The fans will come if we do that." – Stan Kasten, in his last official press conference as Team President of the Washington Nationals.
Yesterday, not in the press conference room, but in the swanky President’s Club, in a back corner by the big plate glass windows that overlook the Washington Nationals batting cages, outgoing Team President Stan Kasten gathered the Continue reading
First, all apologies for not writing game stories over the weekend. I didn’t plan on taking the last two days of the season off, but we had a lot on our plate this weekend and couldn’t catch up.
I’m sure you know by now, the Nats lost two of three to the Mets, a team that knew their manager and general manager would be fired after the last out of the season was recorded. Maybe that was the Continue reading
As a follow up to the debacle last night at Nationals Park, I wanted to offer a quick few comments on the difference between the Washington Nationals and another franchise, this time a local one: The Washington Capitals.
There was a time when folks weren’t so enthused with Ted Leonsis and the Washington Capitals. When Ted first took over, he took the easy way out, chasing free agents and Continue reading
"That’s the reason you want to come to a team like this. They know how to do it," — Phillies starter Roy Halladay
"Kind of embarrassing when everyone in the stadium is clapping against you and you’re at home," Nationals shortstop Ian Desmond.
Phillies fans — as far as the eye can see — revel in division title at Nationals Park.
