David Huzzard: Nats should look at other trade possibilities - Nationals Buzz

The 2017 Nationals are a confusing team to follow. They are a combination of the best run-producing team in baseball, a huge division lead, a strong top of the rotation and one of the worst bullpens ever constructed. That last one gets most of the attention and it needs to ... Read More

Nationals “what was Nook Logan thinking” video is finally up and all is right in the world

In celebration of the 10-year anniversary, MLBAM has heard our calls...

A few weeks back, while playing the Texas Rangers, Wilmer Difo was on third when Trea Turner laid down a perfect bunt. If Difo had run straight from third without stopping, he would have scored the winning run of the game, avoiding extras and an eventual loss. Instead, this happened... CLICK HERE IF YOU’RE ON MOBILE.

It, to say the least, was not Wilmer Difo’s (or the Nationals’) proudest moment.

However, for...

Washington Nationals: Stephen Drew has delivered since returning from injury

When Washington Nationals’ infielder Stephen Drew landed on the disabled list on April 12 with a right hamstring strain, I’m sure the number of ‘Nats fans who pushed the panic button was low. The veteran Drew was batting just .222 through the first nine games of his second season in D.C., and has been in the decline phase of his career for some time now. However, the Nationals have been lucky to have him back, as he has hit .481 since June 8 with seven RBI, appearing both in the field...

FanRag’s Jon Heyman had previously reported that he spoke to someone with ties to the Washington Nationals who told him it wasn’t just a closer that the Nats and GM Mike Rizzo are after right now as they try to fix the problems in the Nationals’ bullpen.

“We don’t need just one big reliever, we need two,” the source said.

Thursday mailbag: Who is untouchable if the Nationals look to deal for relief help?

Washington Nationals: The greatness of Max Scherzer

There is no denying that Max Scherzer is one of the Washington Nationals’ best players. On June 21, Scherzer was on his way to his third no-hitter of his career. Unfortunately, a late inning mistake would cost him the no-hitter and the game. He allowed two runs in the eighth and the Miami Marlins came back to win 2-1. Scherzer is the first pitcher since 2009 to have a no-hit bid through seven innings and take a loss, per ESPN Stats and Information. It is foolish to let this disappointing...

Despite decline in velocity, Gio Gonzalez is finding success with more fastballs

By mixing up how he uses his arsenal, the Washington Nationals’ Gio Gonzalez has been able to get off to a strong start this season.

It’s no secret that Gio Gonzalez isn’t the strikeout artist that he used to be. Since leading the National League with a 9.3 K/9 in 2012, Gonzalez’s strikeout totals (as well as the rest of his numbers) have gradually declined.

“If you come into the big leagues knowing how to get out of jams, shoot, you’re going to be a big winner. Especially...

Catch up on the last 24 hours in Nationals news, and enjoy your off day today...

Yes, it sucks to lose like the Nationals did yesterday. But it’s also typically pretty difficult to win when you only score one run. Moreover, the team finally gets an off-day today, so maybe they’ll be slightly rested for tomorrow’s matchup. Hopefully.

Nationals’ Brian Goodwin is capitalizing on his chance to play everyday

In late April, when the Nationals needed an outfielder to replace the injured Adam Eaton, the club looked to its Class AAA affiliate and bypassed Brian Goodwin. Instead, the Nationals plucked Rafael Bautista from Syracuse for his first major league stint. The decision surprised Goodwin, a former first-round pick who debuted in the majors last […]
