Rendon's Throw Knocks Storen Down Again, Nats Season Slipping Away

DC Sports Nexus ---- Thursday, August 13, 2015

On Wednesday night the Nationals former closer (and semi-current 8th inning "setup seemingly demoted again to 8th inning matchup guy) Drew Storen gave up another 2 runs thanks to a horrible throwing error by Anthony Rendon. The season is starting to slip away from Matt Williams and the Nationals, now 3 1/2 games out of first place behind the Mets.

Jimmy Rollins Respects Michael A Taylor's Arm On Throw From Center

DC Sports Nexus ---- Wednesday, August 12, 2015

With Denard Span out of the lineup, Michael A. Taylor has earned his way into the everyday center field position. On Tuesday night in a loss against the Dodgers Taylor had the chance to show off his arm to the LA crowd. With a runner on 2nd Taylor scooted under a deep fly ball and fired a strike to third base to hold an impressed Jimmy Rollins at 2nd base. After the throw Taylor and Rollins shared a moment as the veteran gave the youngster some props for his toss. Here's how it looked in GIF form.

Gio Swings, Gio Misses, Gio Falls, Gio Wins

DC Sports Nexus ---- Tuesday, August 11, 2015

During Gio Gonzalez's latest pitching victory against the Dodgers he had a very comical plate appearance. The pitcher took a huge cut at a Zack Greinke pitch and his body twisted as he fell down to one knee. Here's Gio falling and his reaction to the situation:

Bryce Harper Tries To Break Bat On Knee, Fails

DC Sports Nexus ---- Monday, August 10, 2015

Bryce Harper and his knees are having a lot of trouble lately. Bryce just missed an important game against the Dodgers after hurting his often hurt left knee on a diving catch in the previous game. The day before he had some trouble with the other knee after popping out in the bottom of the 9th inning with 2 runners on base and a chance to win the game. He was so frustrated with the out he decided to try to break his bat over his knee. He slammed the bat into his leg but it didn't break. Bryce grimaced in pain and tossed the bat with frustration. It looked like it hurt really bad. Here's what it looked like:

FP Homerism Reaches New Heights

DC Sports Nexus ---- Tuesday, April 28, 2015

I love FP but I have to post this because there has to be a limit on homerism in a blowout game. The Nationals trailed 9-1 in the top of the 3rd inning. Nats announcer FP Santangelo had some interesting super homerism to lay on the viewers...some quotes:

"Nats were down 7-0 here last year in August they came back to make it 7-6, Anthony Rendon lined out to center field, put a good at bat on em"

-FP talking about a game the Nationals LOST...not only that he called it the turning point of the season...I like how he added that it was a good at out though.

"If they score 1 run an inning from here on out and they hold the Braves it will be 9-8"

-FP talking about something very difficult to do, and also a scenario in which the Nationals still LOSE the game

"I like what I just saw right there!"

-FP applauding the Nats for high fiving Denard Span in the dugout after they cut the lead to 9-2. I guess a "morale" victory.

"That got me out of my seat!"

-FP super excited about a Bryce Harper hit that was 20 feet foul...Harper struck out on the next pitch to end the inning.

The Nats can still win this ballgame. I'm with FP and I won't give up. However, I like to remain a bit more realistic. Go NATS!

Fans Impress In Final Weekend Of The Season

DC Sports Nexus ---- Sunday, September 28, 2014

Nationals fans came out in droves for the "meaningless" final few games of the 2014 Washington Nationals season. And like Nats fans often do, they came out dressed up, with clever signs, and ready to go crazy for the upcoming playoffs.

Here are some of the top scenes from this weekend's games:

Dan Kolko Gets Pied, Doesn't Wipe It Off

DC Sports Nexus ----

After Jordan Zimmermann's no hitter on Sunday, Jayson Werth came up and slammed a pie into the pitcher's face. MASN sideline reporter Dan Kolko ended up getting pied as well and like a true professional went on with his interview covered in pie. However, after several minutes, and plenty of time to clean up, Kolko returned on camera pie still there. Then, Kolko showed up to the post game press conference, you guessed it, covered in pie. Here are some pics:
