BULLPEN ALLOWS FOUR RUNS IN LATE INNINGS SPURRED BY WALKS
The Washington Nationals seemed to have things going for them last night, as they took a 6-3 lead into the late innings with a rested bullpen. But as is their way right now, the Nats couldn’t seal the deal, and the Milwaukee Brewers scored four runs across the seventh and eighth innings to snatch victory from the Nats, 7-6, before 24,722 Continue reading
There are a lot of studies out there that suggest that the anecdotal concept of "clutch" does not really exist. As emotional beings, fans tend to remember the good (a player coming through with runners in scoring position or in a big situation) and tend to forget the equal number of times that player has failed.
Some of the more celebrated "clutch" players in history, statistics-wise, were no Continue reading
Multiple reports earlier today indicated catcher Jesus Flores will be recalled to take Ryan Zimmerman’s place on the roster when the Washington Nationals move the third baseman to the disabled later today with an abdominal strain, originally sustained during spring training and re-aggravated in Saturday’s 8-4 loss to the New York Mets, when he slid headfirst into second on a play that didn’t even Continue reading
Multiple reports from Citi Field today that Adam LaRoche’s left shoulder, the one in which he has a partial tear of the rotator cuff, is bothering him again after making a throw the other night in Florida and will be given the night off. Michael Morse moves over to first base and Jerry Hairston takes over right.
So far, it just sounds like this is an opportunity to rest LaRoche, especially since Continue reading
THE RESULT: A win is a win. Despite two errors and several other defensive miscues, and the hitters going 1-for-7 with runners in scoring position, last night the Washington Nationals broke a seven-game losing streak to their personal nemesis Florida Marlins, 5-3 in 11 innings.
Adam LaRoche hit his first home run of the year with a man on in the top of the 11th, while four relievers combined Continue reading
Today at Nats Park, with snow still covering the field where shadows keep the sun away, the Washington Nationals introduced first baseman Adam LaRoche as the newest member of the team. LaRoche signed a two-year deal worth $16 million, plus a team option on a third year last week.
The oft-traveled left-handed 31-year old joins his fifth Major League team in his eighth big league season.
LaRoche Continue reading
Multiple sources confirm the Washington Nationals have signed free agent first baseman Adam LaRoche to a two ear deal, reportedly for $16 million total.
LaRoche is a left-handed hitting eight-year veteran who averages .271/.339/.488 with 25 homers and 93 RBIs per 162 games throughout his career.
LaRoche has hit exactly 25 home runs each of the last three seasons, including in 2010 with Arizona. Continue reading
By all accounts, Carlos Pena is a quality human being and leader of men. There are several people with the Washington Nationals that would have loved him to be a leader in this organization. They liked his left-handed power bat and nimbleness around first base. He would have been a great free agent signing for this team.

Anybody in baseball could have had Pena for a song after Continue reading
