Nats 2, Phillies 1

Nothing makes a cross-country flight go smoother than a couple of wins against the four-time defending division champions. The Nats, now headed to Phoenix for the start of an 11-game West Coast road trip, were in some dire straits e… Continue reading

Nats Postgame – 2-1 win over Padres

Nats 2, Padres 1

No better way to shake off a 1-7 road trip where nerves frayed and controversy reigned than with a walk-off home run. Of course, that came after a blown save in the top of the ninth inning so it wasn’t exactly conventional. But the … Continue reading

Nats Postgame – Another first for Kimball

Cole Kimball might be a rookie. He might have all of three days of major-league experience to his name. But the Nats’ 25-year-old reliever already gives off the cool vibe of an established veteran. Pitch three days in a row to start your career? No p… Continue reading

The Nationals Were Like a 1970′s Exploitation Film

The midweek series between the Washington Nationals and the Philadelphia Phillies was pretty brutal to watch. It was like watching an exploitation film where women are sadistically abused, animals are raped and blood pours constantly from every orifice on the human body. If you have no idea what I mean then let me point you [...] Continue reading

My Nats Losing To Philly Night Was Better Than Your Nats Losing To Philly Night

You might be asking yourself, how can this be? Any night the Washington Nationals lose to the Philadelphia Phillies is usually considered a bad night, especially when the Nats are completely locked down by a pitcher like (the Nats ain’t his huckleberry…) Roy “Doc” Halladay. Nights where the Nats offense can’t figure out what end [...] Continue reading

They should. They need [...] Continue reading

Birthday Boy Morse Puts The Candles On The Nats WIN Cake

Before we light the candles on this baby, I feel like I have to say something. I feel like I absolutely dropped the ball yesterday. First, Bryce Harper goes down with an ankle injury and then the Nationals get into a baffling half-brawl with the St. Louis Cardinals over in Jupiter. The NQ was at [...] Continue reading

Derek Norris Doesn’t Care How Many Rings You Have

So I was standing near the concourse of Space Coast Stadium near the main gate this morning and in walks these two Yankee chicks. They had to be either seniors in high school or college freshman. They came in loud, one wearing a Yank shirt advertising how many rings they won, the other wearing a [...] Continue reading
