So Nice for Bryce!

It’s been a very interesting season for the Washington Nationals so far.  While they’re not tearing up the league like predicted, they have come back from a so-so April and had a breakthrough May so far to put themselved in a solid second place in the National League East. Not only have Jayson Werth and Denard Span returned from the Disabled List (oh, hang on – Werth just got placed BACK on the DL!), but left fielder Bryce Harper has been kicking butt this month, winning National League ... read more

Beware, Nationals fans – I am in a bad mood.  I am usually a sunny disposition-type of person, but today I’m not, mainly because I got to work early for a meeting that ended up being canceled and no one told me.  But that’s neither here nor there – I was in a bad mood to begin with, since Max Scherzer was announced as the starting pitchers for the Washington Nationals on opening day this year. What’s the big deal – it’s only the first game out of 162 – why does it really matter ... read more

Missing Ryan

Hello, Nationals fans!  Doesn’t it feel good to be in first place?  Right now the Washington Nationals are 1 1/2 games atop the NL East, with the Atlanta Braves breathing down our backs.  But it has taken a lot of toil and trouble to get to the top – the Nationals have battled injuries, hitting slumps, and Bryce Harper tantrums, and through it all, they still manage to persevere. Many critics have stated that the NL East has the most “uninteresting” race in Major League Baseball. ... read more

Happy All-Star break, Nationals fans!  As we look back on the first half of the 2014 baseball season, we Washington Nationals fans should be pretty pleased with our team.  Not only are the Nationals in first place in the NL East (percentage points above the Atlanta Braves); the Nats have won 10 of their last 14 games, their bats have come alive, and their pitching continues to be solid. While some critics claim that the Nationals have “under-performed” during the first half of the season, ... read more

Everyone Take a Deep Breath, Please!

After last year’s disappointing season, Washington Nationals fans are hungry for this year’s season to start.  All the players seem to be healthy, the new players acquired during the off-season promise to strengthen the team both offensively and on the mound, and pitching ace Stephen Strasburg has officially completed his rehab following Tommy John surgery in 2010 (finally!). Because of this excitement, both fans and reporters alike have a tizzy fit every time something out of the ordinary ... read more

Hey Nationals fans!  It may be hard to believe with the awful weather we’ve been having so far this year, but Spring Training is just around the corner!  Pitchers and catchers report this Thursday, with the rest of the squad starting next week (February 18).  I don’t know about you, but I am giddy with excitement!  Really, I'm giddy - I'm not kidding! So what went on with the Nationals during the off-season?  In case you missed it, Matt Williams was named as the Nationals’ new manager, ... read more

Hey Nationals fans!  I hope you all had a safe Halloween – did you all see my son dressed as Jayson Werth?  Anyway, now that the World Series is over, the Washington Nationals can make it official:  Matt Williams has been hired as their new manager. Williams, 47, becomes the fifth full-time manager in Nationals history. The team made the announcement on Thursday morning, and Williams will meet with the media Friday afternoon during a 2 p.m. press conference that will be televised live on ... read more

Still Hanging in There!

Hello, Nationals fans!  Sorry I haven't blogged in a while - we had a family vacation, my kids went back to school, and I went back to my school-year job; so life has been pretty hectic around here.  But while all of us have been leading our busy lives, Major League Baseball continues, and as we enter the last month of the regular season, playoff races are heating up. Not to be excluded from the hoopla are the Washington Nationals, who, despite not living up to preseason expectations, are still ... read more
