Injury bug

Well, poop – I guess I at least caught Ryan Zimmerman’s last game before he went on the 15 day disabled list. Saturday night, Zimmerman re-injured an abdominal strain sliding into 2nd base that first bothered him during spring training. Huge bummer! Things seem a bit touch-and-go with new first baseman, Adam LaRoche as well, [...] Continue reading

The Nats Lose The Face For Awhile

Nationals beat writer Bill Ladson tweets that Nationals All-Star third baseman Ryan Zimmerman will be placed on the 15-Day DL for an abdominal muscle strain.

You Can’t Judge A Season By One Series

But what about two with the Marlins series starting tonight? I kid, I kid! I have nothing much to say about Sunday’s series finale loss at the brutal choking hands of the Braves.

The New Guys and Old Guys

Since there are still a few hours before the Nats’ second game of the season, I can squeeze one more post out of opening day. So, I sounded pretty grumpy yesterday morning and I apologize.

The Ghost Of Willingham’s Guns Not Impressed By The Shark’s Swell

I was really hoping I wouldn’t have to write about it because a bunch of sportswriters/bloggers sitting around writing about how the sun gleams off the moist, ripped arms of another man is sort of, well– you know. Moisty. But that is what we are doing when talking about Roger “The Shark” Bernadina’s brand new [...] Continue reading
