Last night was particularly hard. It was spent in Room 209 of the Cocoa Econo Lodge drinking Moosehead and staring out the window at the falling rain, passing cars and the occasional train on the tracks. It was a night where the Cartoon Network couldn’t really cheer me up and trashing the hotel room added [...] Continue reading
The Washington Nationals today made a series of moves to trim the roster in preparation for coming north for Opening Day.
The Nats optioned Roger Bernadina, Collin Balester and Ross Detwiler to Triple-A Syracuse and re-assigned Brian Bixler to minor league camp.
In addition, they placed reliever Henry Rodriguez on the 15-day disabled list and starter Chien-Ming Wang and reliever Elvin Ramirez on Continue reading

The Washington Nationals re-assigned catcher Jesus Flores and pitcher Craig Stammen to Triple-A Syracuse today, cutting the Nats spring training roster to 35 as Opening Day rapidly approaches.
Neither move is unexpected. Flores, returning from major shoulder surgery, needs to see more pitching to get his stroke back after missing the better part of two seasons. Continue reading
According to a tweet from Bill Ladson of MLB.com, the center field battle has lost a competitor, as he reports that the job has come down to the incumbent, Nyjer Morgan, and off-season free agent acquisition Rick Ankiel.
Either Roger Bernadina is slated to be the fourth outfielder, or he will find his way to Triple-A Syracuse, a victim of the fact he has an option remaining.
Morgan, 30, and Continue reading
A couple days ago, on a day the Nationals traveled, I found myself in Cocoa Beach and decided to stop by Cheaters, one of my favorite haunts, for a couple of drinks, inquire about the wildlife and to get out of the blasted sun that has been turning my skin into leather. Every employee in [...] Continue reading
The Washington Nationals have made another round of roster cuts, according to multiple reports trickling out of Viera. News today that RHRP Cole Kimball, 1B Chris Marrero and CF Corey Brown were all sent over to the minor league side should not come as a shock to anyone that follows this team.
Kimball, 25, a hard-throwing — but wild — reliever was exciting to watch in camp, and he struck out Continue reading
The Washington Nationals were cruising today, leading the Houston Astros 7-3 entering the bottom of the ninth inning, with the bullpen having thrown five shutout innings.
But as Yogi once said, "It ain’t over til it’s over."
A five-run rally in the bottom of the ninth lifted the Astros to an 8-7 win, before 3,328 at Osceola County Stadium in Kissimmee, FL. The Loss drops the Nats to 10-8 for the Continue reading
The Washington Nationals couldn’t get much offense going last night, managing just six hits off six New York Mets pitchers, en route to a 5-2 loss in Grapefruit League play before 6,646 at Digital Domain Park in Port St. Lucie, FL.
But the big news — which could have been catastrophic — was that Danny Espinosa fouled a ball of fhis right foot and had to be helped by team trainers into the Continue reading
Washington Nationals right-handed veteran Jason Marquis continued his solid spring on Monday, pitching five good innings against the Detroit Tigers in an eventual 4-2 loss in windy conditions at Space Coast Stadium.
Marquis gave up his first earned run of the spring, but was otherwise effective, allowing just three hits and two walks in the five innings. Seven of his fifteen outs came on the Continue reading
The Washington Nationals lost to the Houston Astros 7-6, leaving the tying run on third base in a three-run ninth inning. Here’s a quick look at the good and bad:
1. Ross Detwiler. I know his box score didn’t end up that impressive, but his transformation from last year to this is incredible. His delivery is smooth, efficient and effective.
2. Michael Morse. Continues to rake. Stud. Continue reading
