Two lengthy delays can’t ruin Washington’s much-needed victory.

  • Perspective

The Nats have a bevy of veteran players who are qualified to lead, and yet they remain a rudderless ship.

"I want to be there for my guys,” said the all-star closer, who underwent a second MRI exam on Saturday.

Washington's outfield surplus made Goodwin expendable.

The game has yet to be rescheduled, and Sunday's forecast looks ominous.

  • Perspective

The dugout argument between Stephen Strasburg and Max Scherzer shouldn’t be a concern. Actually, it’s about time for a team that’s worn a smiley face too long.

Doolittle said his Friday bullpen session did not go well, an ominous sign given the state of Washington's relief corps.

Stephen Strasburg struggles in return, then gets into a heated exchange in dugout with Max Scherzer after failing to make it out of the fifth inning of 8-5 loss.

Strasburg will start Friday night, but Zimmerman won't. Matt Adams gets the nod instead.

The team's new deal with Paisano's was made before embattled Papa John's founder John Schnatter admitted this month to using the n-word during a conference call.

Washington begins the second half 5 1/2 games out of first, and has little — if any — time to waste.

The D.C. flag headbands will be available at Nationals Park on Friday.

With his team at .500 as the second half begins, Washington’s rookie manager faces questions about bullpen workload and pitching decisions.

The American League won Tuesday’s game, hosted in Nationals Park, in an 8-6 victory that featured extra innings and a record 10 home runs.

As Trout rounded the bases, Harper agreed with Fox's Joe Buck that the Angels star is baseball's best player.

“D.C. sports are so hot right now,” and at Tuesday's MLB All-Star Game, fans celebrated this new era.

Ramos returned to Nationals Park this week as an American League all-star. Could he return in a trade?

Aaron Judge got things started with a homer off Max Scherzer that left the Nats ace saying, in an in-game interview, "I learned my lesson." The Yankee's star's blast was the first of eight solo homers and 10 total dingers.

The Washington manager had said he would be angry if his ace threw at 98 or 99 mph after hitting only 97 during the regular season.

Tuesday night drew so many only-in-D.C. bold names to Nationals Park.
