    US Presswire photo Outfielder Brett Carroll is making a push for a spot on the Nationals' bench. If you're like me, you've spent the last few days pondering over not only spring training box scores but also NCAA Tournament bracket projections. (For your sake, I hope your alma mater made it into the field of…

    Mar 11, 2012, 2:36 PM EDT

    US Presswire photo The Nats are back at Roger Dean Stadium today facing the Cardinals. Fresh off an, um … what do you call it when a team wins one game and ties the other? It's not a sweep. It's not a split. How about a spleep? Anyways, the Nationals beat the Mets in Viera…

  3. Nats (ss) vs. Mets and Tigers – 3/10/12

    Mar 10, 2012, 5:00 PM EDT

    US Presswire photo One of the Nats' split squads will face the Tigers today at Joker Marchant Stadium. Ah, the split-squad game, one of the great rites of spring training.

  4. Video: Jackson’s long road to D.C.

    Mar 10, 2012, 2:30 PM EDT

    A well-traveled man? That doesn’t seem to do Edwin Jackson justice. The right-hander has pitched for seven different organizations in 10 years, this after spending his childhood bouncing around the globe as a military brat. As Jackson tells Comcast SportsNet’s Kelli Johnson in this video, his long and winding path to the Nationals has been…

  5. Nats vs. Marlins – 3/9/12

    Mar 9, 2012, 8:36 PM EDT

    US Presswire photo Roger Dean Stadium, spring training home of the newly renamed Miami Marlins. Stephen Strasburg's first outing of the spring was good, not great. The right-hander did give up a couple of runs in 2 2/3 innings to the Astros, of them coming on a Chris Snyder homer. He did, however, strike out…

  6. The best setup man wants to be even better

    Mar 9, 2012, 12:00 PM EDT

    US Presswire photo Tyler Clippard earned his first All-Star selection last summer. Rare is the setup man who can boast an ERA under 2.00, a spot on the All-Star team, a double-digit win total, a triple-digit strikeout total and a workload that would make most pitchers' arms drop dead. Even rarer is the setup man…

  7. Nats vs. Astros – 3/8/12

    Mar 8, 2012, 5:00 PM EDT

    US Presswire photo Space Coast Stadium plays host to the Houston Astros this afternoon. No matter how hard the Nationals try to distance themselves from Livan Hernandez, they just can't avoid him right now. Five days after the big guy made his Astros debut against his former club in Kissimmee, he's back on the mound…

  8. The rotation: So far, so good

    Mar 8, 2012, 12:00 PM EDT

    US Presswire photo Gio Gonzalez tossed three scoreless innings on Tuesday. Yes, it's early. And no, they haven't been stretched out for more than three innings yet. But so far, the Nationals' revamped starting rotation has lived up to the top billing it received when camp opened nearly three weeks ago. With five Grapefruit League…

    Mar 7, 2012, 5:30 PM EDT

    File photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER The Nats host the Cardinals today at Space Coast Stadium. It's still early — the Nationals have played only five of 34 total exhibition games this spring — but Ian Desmond's struggles both at the plate and in the field have not gone unnoticed. The third-year shortstop…

  10. Video: The Nats’ dominant bullpen

    Mar 7, 2012, 4:00 PM EDT

    For all the attention being heaped upon the Nationals’ revamped rotation this spring, the club’s bullpen may actually claim to be the more dominant unit of the two. In this video from CSNwashington.com, Kelli Johnson sits down with Drew Storen, Tyler Clippard and newcomer Brad Lidge and finds out what makes the Nats’ relief corps…
