Jayson Werth Is A Werewolf Of Mystery

The Nationals got completely savaged and swept out of Milwaukee this afternoon. It was actually a pretty good fight as crappy baseball games go. The Nationals kept trying to come back, but the Brewers always seemed to come up with the answers and the Nationals eventually lost 6-4. The series and the whole road trip [...] Continue reading

Your Nationals Dispatch: The Many Faces Of Gorzo The Gorgon Edition

I know I’ve said it about 100 times already, but for the sake of this post I am going to say it again: Tom Gorzelanny sounds like  a walking monster movie. Specifically a Kaiju from a Toho production. His nickname, Gorzo doesn’t help change that perception nor does his “homely look.” Plenty has been said [...] Continue reading

Chris Marrero Had A Uniform Malfunction– Or Something

I debated posting this up on the site because we are so high class and snobby, but then after 5 minutes of deliberation I said, “Screw it.” This sort of stuff is part of the Spring Training baseball experience, you sent us down here to give you that experience and by God, we are going [...] Continue reading

The Intangible Value of Stephen Strasburg

What are you doing Saturday afternoon?
If you’re reading this, there’s a good chance you’ll be watching the Desert Dogs – Javalinas game on television*.
And for that, you have Stephen Strasburg to thank.
The Nationals are pretty psyched about it too, I bet. After all, here it is just a week before Thanksgiving, and quite a few [...] Continue reading

In Arizona, Its All Heat, All the Time

Beyond the left field fence at Surprise Stadium, the billboard-sized scoreboard displays the line-score of the game, balls, strikes and outs.
