Add A Little Nats To Your Morning Coffee For An Extra Buzz

So I am up this morning, relatively early and I am snorting my second cup of coffee grinds (my coffee addiction has reached intervention levels) when I suddenly realize that the blog is getting a little cold and neglected. This is usual for this time of year, not yet out of the off season, but [...] Continue reading

Your Nationals Dispatch: The Defrosting Edition

We are finally back in NQ Headquarters after a long holiday. I wish I could say I come back vibrant and refreshed, but that never seems to be the case these days when it comes to holidays.

Bye-Bye Bergmann And Nationals Pipe Dreams

Nats beat writer Bill Ladson reported on his Twitter Feed that Nats reliever Jason Bergmann has been granted free agency. I am considering tweeting him back and asking him, “Like that tree that falls in the woods when no one is around, does anyone really care?”
