Getty Images The Nats had plenty of reason to celebrate after today’s 3-0 victory. As the crowd of 37,638 roared and members of the Nationals doffed their caps one last time before disappearing down the dugout steps, Jayson Werth turned to Michael Morse and offered up a prediction. “This is how it’s going to be,”…

Associated Press photo Davey Johnson is likely to return as Nationals manager next season. The Nationals’ formal search for their 2012 manager will be a brief process and include only a handful of candidates, headlined by Davey Johnson. General manager Mike Rizzo said today he doesn’t anticipate this search to be as far-reaching or take…

Photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER Ross Detwiler faces the Braves today in the Nationals' 2011 home finale. And so we have reached the final home game of the season, one last chance for fans to see their team in person and one last chance for the players to thank their supporters. As they've…

US Presswire photo Ivan Rodriguez gets a hug from Drew Storen at the end of the Nats’ 4-1 win. The notion of Chien-Ming Wang and Ivan Rodriguez serving as batterymates for a late-September victory over a division rival fighting for its playoff life would have sounded ludicrous only a few months ago. Yet there were…

US Presswire photo Jayson Werth was declared the winner of today's presidents race. Jayson Werth's disdain for Teddy Roosevelt's losing ways in the nightly presidents race at Nationals Park is well-documented. Earlier this season, the veteran right fielder openly campaigned for the club to let Teddy win a race for the first time ever, suggesting…

Photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER Chien-Ming Wang faces Brandon Beachy today at Nationals Park. The final home series of each season always includes a few bittersweet moments, and one of those will probably come today in the penultimate game at Nationals Park this year. Ivan Rodriguez is in the lineup and behind the…

US Presswire photo Stephen Strasburg struggled early but rebounded to retire 10 of 11 Braves batters. A three-run first inning should not be a death sentence for most pitchers, who typically have plenty of time to work through their problems and often salvage a quality start out of the early carnage. The Nationals, though, can’t…

Photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER The forecast doesn't look promising tonight at Nationals Park. What could be the most significant game the Nationals play this season — Stephen Strasburg and the red-hot Nats vs. Tim Hudson and the wild-card-leading Braves — could be affected by something totally out of both teams' control: the…

US Presswire photo Ryan Zimmerman congratulates Michael Morse following his eighth-inning homer. By any measure, what the Nationals just accomplished in Philadelphia was nothing short of remarkable. A four-game sweep of the five-time NL East champs, on the road, with their four starting pitchers combining to allow three runs? Nobody saw that coming. Nor did…

US Presswire file photo Can the Nats finish off a four-game sweep at Citizens Bank Park? In their nearly seven-year existence, the Nationals have swept only a pair of four-game road series: the season-ending Oct. 1-4, 2009 series in Atlanta and last week's series in New York. With a win tonight, they would do it…
