Nationals quarter-season review

It’s hard to believe how quickly this season is moving, but after 15 games (plus one incomplete game), the Nats are now a quarter through their season. At 6-9, it has certainly been an up-and-down start, but as this team knows well, bumpy roads lead to beautiful places. However, they’re going to need to getContinue reading “Nationals quarter-season review”

What to make of Nats’ start

The Nats are off to a 2-4 start. Not ideal, but in any normal year, no real reason to worry. If they can win the next couple series, it’s back to smooth sailing.

Nats return to action in West Palm Beach

By: Joe Pohoryles Daniel Hudson launched a low, inside slider, causing Michael Brantley of the Houston Astros to swing and miss. With a victory toss of Hudson’s glove and a fist-pumping Yan Gomes, the Washington Nationals were officially world champions. That was Oct. 30. Today is Feb. 22, and the Nats and Astros meet onceContinue reading “Nats return to action in West Palm Beach”

Re-evaluating the hot corner in 2020

By: Joe Pohoryles Yesterday, the Nats lost out on their top free agent target. Third baseman Josh Donaldson agreed to a four-year, $92 million deal with the Minnesota Twins, officially ending the hopes of getting a high-end replacement for Anthony Rendon as the Nats’ third baseman. A couple weeks ago, I made a series ofContinue reading “Re-evaluating the hot corner in 2020”
