Nationals Nirvana: Smells Like Team Spirit

The rain began to fall, but it could not erase the atmosphere around me that willingly violated my senses. The sights, the smells and the sounds of Nationals Park– no other place like it in the world. I sucked in huge quantities of air into my lungs and enjoyed the smells of the concessions, beer, [...] 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

Fear And Nats Blogging In The DMV

Dear God. It has happened. They’ve found me. It has been a wild 48 hours for the NQ. I’ve been living in a state of absolute paranoia which is why updates on the blog have been scatter brained at best lately. Sweet Jesus, I can’t believe it.

Can Collin Balester Haul As Much Ass Out Of The Bullpen As Coffey?

Your Nationals Dispatch: The Spider Crickets Edition

I’m not a fan of spider crickets. They are absolutely horrid, disgusting creatures much like leeches and ticks, but more devilish because they actually show signs of intelligence and aggression.

Not much of a relief so far this year

Brian McNally

It was their biggest strength last season. To be honest — it might have been their only strength. But relying on a strong bullpen is often fool’s gold for any major league club.

Nats Get Cat Scratched By The Kittens

Lord, it was a hot one today. The Space Coast digital thermometer peaked at 76 78 80 degrees and the sun was unmerciful. My skin looks like– gator jerky and feels on fire. It would have all been made worth it if the Nats were as equally unmerciful to the visiting Detroit Tigers, but sadly [...] Continue reading
