US Presswire photo Albert Pujols had a performance for the ages last night in Game 3. When you're one of only three players in baseball to do something, and when the other two guys are named Babe Ruth and Reggie Jackson, it's safe to say you've done something special. Actually, there's an argument to be…

US Presswire photo Ian Kinsler's stolen base helped set up the Rangers' winning rally in Game 2. After a day off for travel and ripping Albert Pujols for bailing on the media following Game 2, the World Series reconvenes tonight in the Great Republic of Texas, where the stars tonight will be big and bright.…

US Presswire photo Ian Desmond led the Nats in sacrifice flies … with five. A wonderfully quirky and genuinely nice man who for decades served as an official scorer at both Yankees and Mets games, Bill Shannon, hated the sacrifice fly. When he was scoring a game and someone would drive in a run via…

General manager Mike Rizzo was kind enough to sit down this week for a lengthy interview at Nationals Park and answer questions on all sorts of topics facing the organization as the offseason begins.

US Presswire photo Hitting coach Mark McGwire congratulates Jason Motte following last night's win. I hope I wasn't the only one who really enjoyed watching Game 1 of the World Series last night, happy to see a couple of aces actually pitch well and a tight, one-run game come down to a couple of key…

Despite speculation from national media outlets that the Nationals will be among the clubs making serious overtures to free agent first basemen Albert Pujols and Prince Fielder this winter, general manager Mike Rizzo insists he’s “comfortable” with his team’s current crop of first basemen. The Nationals already have veteran Adam LaRoche (who missed most of…

US Presswire photo Ross Detwiler is one of several young arms the Nationals have in their arsenal. We've talked a lot already this offseason about what positions the Nationals need to improve to get themselves closer to contention in 2012.

US Presswire photo It's been cold and rainy in St. Louis all day. If it's late October and it's the Midwest, weather is probably going to be a factor. Sure enough, the World Series opens tonight in St. Louis in dreary conditions: Temperatures in the 40s, rain in the forecast and a strong wind blowing…

US Presswire photo Busch Stadium hosts Game 1 of the Fall Classic tonight. This World Series matchup — Texas vs. St. Louis — is being billed as a huge surprise, but maybe it's not as big a shocker as we want to believe. After all, the Rangers were the defending American League champs. And though…

The Nationals announced today they've returned Rule 5 draftee Elvin Ramirez to the Mets, sending the right-hander back to New York after he missed the entire season with a shoulder injury.
