Max Scherzer throws second no-hitter of the season

Washington Nationals pitcher Max Scherzer tossed his second no-hitter of the season on Saturday night against the Mets—a feat that no other MLB pitcher had achieved in a regular season since Nolan Ryan did in 1973. Scherzer struck out 17 batters and did not give up a walk. He was a Yunel Escobar error in the sixth inning away from throwing a perfect game, and he’s the first...

GM on Harper: 'Not a lot he could have done differently' in fight

Washington Nationals general manager Mike Rizzo almost exactly echoed manager Matt Williams when he indicated there wasn’t much Bryce Harper could have done differently regarding his dugout skirmish with Jonathan Papelbon.

Zimmermann reflects on Nats tenure after likely final start

After seven seasons with the Washington Nationals, Jordan Zimmermann likely threw his final pitch for the franchise on Wednesday. The 29-year-old righty, who will become a free agent after the season, isn't expected to be re-signed by the Nats due to a combination of the team's payroll situation and the top pitching prospects it has in the queue. In what appears to be his final start...

Washington Times’ Thom Loverro goes after Nationals for “what is between their legs.”

When I was a boy, an old coach sat my team down one day and told us we needed to be tougher. We needed to be more aggressive. We needed a killer instinct on the field. We needed “intestinal fortitude.” When half the team looked around for a thesaurus, the old guy chuckled, turned his head and said, “you know…balls.” The speech worked, as our team started to play harder...

Jonathan Papelbon bought $2.9M home in DC on Sept. 14

    Washington Nationals reliever Jonathan Papelbon recently purchased a rather expensive home in the D.C. area. Can you say bad timing?

Why might that be an issue? As you have probably heard...

Manager Matt Williams didn't see Harper-Papelbon fight

    The Washington Nationals hit the low point of their 2015 season on Sunday when Bryce Harper and Jonathan Papelbon had to be pulled away from one another after getting into a fight in the dugout.

End of season post-mortem: 2015 Washington Nationals

The end of season post-mortem wasn’t supposed to be written until well into October. Of course, the final word on their 2015 season was also expected to celebrate a World Series championship for a team that appeared to be the best in baseball.
