Matt Harvey and Stephen Strasburg Willing to Sign?

That was a fun break. It’s been over three months since I’ve last posted, and it certainly comes as a surprise that we’re now a few days past Valentine’s Day, a month away from Easter, and one day away from pitchers and catchers arriving to camp. I love Spring Training. It really is the best …

End of Year Award Time!

We should probably discuss the end of year awards. I was lazy and didn’t write up my preseason predictions, which is fine because I would have been wrong for all of them. I was wrong for all of them last year. Who knew that Stephen Strasburg wasn’t ready to take the leap—every Nationals fan, apparently—or …

Steven Matz: About Last Night (September 11)

If there’s a legitimate argument for Yoenis Cespedes as NL MVP (I’m working on a post with my own thoughts), those in favor can basically point to each night’s box score and say, “See?  This guy is raking!”  Cespedes did it again last night, going 3-for-5 with a double, a home run, and three RBI.  …

Jacob DeGrom: About Last Night (September 09)

We can say what we want about the six-man rotation—love it, hate it, find it novel, etc.—but Jacob deGrom (13-7) has already surpassed his career high in innings pitched with that total to approach 200 by season’s end, and he hasn’t exactly looked his best lately. He was beat around mercilessly by the Phillies, and …

Gio Gonzalez: About Last Night (September 05)

How many times this season do you think Nick Markakis has swung at the first pitch in at-bat?  Maybe 25% of the time? I’m spitballing here. I didn’t look this up, so pretend it’s just a couple of friends chatting. What about to start out the game?  A handful of times perhaps? Markakis is a …

Tanner Roark: About Last Night (September 04)

The five or six of you that read my posts regularly know that I’m a huge fan of Tanner Roark. I’ve said it many times. Personally I think he should be a regular in the Nationals rotation, but I understand the reasoning for using Joe Ross as the fifth starter. Roark did everything asked of …

Jordan Zimmermann: About Last Night (August 29)

I don’t think you could have faulted Jordan Zimmermann (11-8) if he’d lost all ability to think coherently and grooved one to Derek Dietrich after Martin Prado nearly decapitated Zimmermann with a comeback liner in the fourth. Ichiro Suzuki had just worked his way on with a single, and on the next pitch Prado unleashed …

Joe Ross: About Last Night (August 27)

Regular readers of the site know that I’m a huge fan of Joe Ross (5-5). The trade that brought Ross to Washington was lauded for bringing the eventual replacement for impending free agent Ian Desmond. Desmond didn’t want to take the offer that Mike Rizzo had presented to him? That’s fine. We’ll just elbow our …

Jordan Zimmermann: About Last Night (August 18)

If your starters have struggled staying in the game, as have the Nationals (Joe Ross‘ 4+ innings on Sunday was the longest by a Nats starter over the last three games entering Tuesday), then playing a game in Colorado probably isn’t ideal. According to the MASN graphic to kick off the broadcast, an average of …

Max Scherzer: About Last Night (August 14)

In high school I hit exactly one home run. I was a freshman, and the pitcher soft tossed one down near my ankles, and I golfed that pitch down the left field line for what amounted to the single most exhilarating batting experience of my teenage life. So what, you may ask. Well, it was …
