NATIONALS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Kid With Popcorn Bucket On Head Drilled With Foul Ball, Falls Onto Field (Video)

As the old saying goes, if you’re going to get hit in the head with a baseball, make sure you’re at least wearing your popcorn bucket helmet. A young Washington Nationals fan saw the Nats walk off with yet another dramatic win on Wednesday night, but it came at a price. The youngster presumably was having himself one heckuva time. He got to see the red-hot, first-place Nationals...

Bryce Harper’s dance moves in virtual tour of his ‘locker’ are quite awkward (video)

As part of his presumably lucrative financial relationship with Gatorade, Washington Nationals superstar Bryce Harper agreed to provide a virtual tour of his “locker” that fans can interactively poke around in on the sports drink’s website. It’s a pretty neat little bit. Clicking on an item will initiate an explanation from Harper about the particular […] The post Bryce...

Everybody hates Bryce (Harper)

I love Bryce Harper. A player like that has the potential to be great for the game. He’s still a very raw talent, but there are plenty of tools to work with and he plays the game like his hair is on fire. There’s a lot to like. And yet, he takes home a very negative reputation. The stigma surrounding Harper almost leaves a bad taste in your mouth. How has he managed to receive...

Just a fan in an Elmo mask at Nationals Park last night

WATCH: Pirates fan rides tidal wave of emotions during loss

During Sunday night’s Pirates-Nationals game at Nationals Park, the Root Sports cameras kept cutting to a young Pirates fan in the front row that experienced a vast array of emotions during the evening. He went from anger, to sadness, to elation, and back to utter depression when Scott Hairston’s walk off sac fly ended the game. Poor guy. We’ve all been there before. It’s alright, buddy.

Watch: Asdrubal Cabrera’s behind-the-back throw to start double play

Your browser does not support iframes. Asdrubal Cabrera is proving to be a great pickup by Nationals general manager Mike Rizzo. Cabrera has fit right in at second base next to Ian Desmond.

Washington Nationals: If the postseason started today

Currently, the Washington Nationals sit six games ahead of the Atlanta Braves in the National League East, and a trip to the postseason is certainly not guaranteed. However, for all intents and purposes, we will assume they get there. When the postseason begins, Washington faces some difficult questions, how will Matt Williams respond in his first year of managerial duty? The first...

Washington Nationals: What to do about the closer role

From the beginning of 2013 until now, Rafael Soriano has been the closer for the Washington Nationals. After a rough start to the second half of the season, however, his future in this role appears to be in doubt. After struggling to a save while allowing one run in Friday night’s victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates, Soriano gave up three runs in 1/3 of an inning on Sunday evening...

Watch: Nationals mascot clotheslines Pirates pierogi

Washington Nationals mascot Teddy Roosevelt may often get the short end of the stick in the Presidents Race, but he did manage to defend his home turf and got revenge on one of the Pirates pierogis on Friday night.

Did Bryce Harper intentionally disrespect Braves logo?

Bryce Harper showed some disrespect to the Atlanta Braves by scuffing up the team’s logo behind home plate as he went to bat each plate appearance in Saturday’s 4-1 win in extra innings. The Atlanta Journal Constitution’s Chris Vivlamore says Harper did it each time he went to the plate during his 2-for-4 game. Vivlamore […]
