    Apr 4, 2012, 7:25 PM EDT

    US Presswire photo Prince Fielder and Miguel Cabrera will lead the Tigers to a World Series title. Trying to predict on April 4 what MLB's standings will look like on Oct. 4 — and then trying to predict how the entire postseason will play out — is a fruitless effort. There are so many unknown…

    US Presswire photo Veteran Mark DeRosa will start in left field and bat sixth in tomorrow's opener.

  3. Beltway Baseball – Season preview

    Apr 4, 2012, 3:08 PM EDT

    Can the Nationals overcome their early season injuries and get off to a hot start? Can a lineup that struggled to score runs last year produce enough to take advantage of a deep and talented pitching staff? When will Bryce Harper be promoted from Syracuse, and what factors will the club take into consideration before…

  4. Breaking down the Opening Day roster

    Apr 4, 2012, 11:00 AM EDT

    US Presswire photo Davey Johnson and Mike Rizzo have assembled a roster they believe can win this year. The Nationals have never opened a season with a roster quite this talented or quite this deep. Remember those past squads that included the likes of Jerome Williams, Odalis Perez, Brandon Watson, Brian Broderick and J.J. Davis?…

  5. Lannan to Syracuse, Detwiler is 5th starter

    Apr 3, 2012, 11:59 PM EDT

    Faced with a decision to go with an established-though-unspectacular pitcher or a promising-though-unproven pitcher at the back end of their rotation, the Nationals today made the surprising move to go with potential over experience. The Nationals optioned left-hander John Lannan, a two-time Opening Day starter and last year's staff leader in wins and innings pitched,…

  6. Durbin signs with Braves

    Apr 3, 2012, 9:01 PM EDT

    US Presswire photo Chad Durbin couldn't make the Nats' bullpen, but the Braves scooped him up. The Braves announced this afternoon they signed Chad Durbin to a major-league contract, a curious move considering the Nationals had yet to announce they released the right-hander. That formal announcement, though, appears to be coming following today's exhibition finale…

    US Presswire photo Drew Storen will open the season on the DL but expects a quick return.

  8. Nats vs. Red Sox – 4/3/12

    Apr 3, 2012, 3:10 PM EDT

    Photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER Nationals Park hosts its first ballgame of 2012 today. The sun is shining, the cherry blossoms are blooming and there will be baseball played on South Capitol Street today. How sweet is that? Sandwiched between their Grapefruit League finale in Fort Myers and their season opener in Chicago,…

  9. Morse, Ankiel to DL; Nady, Tracy on team

    Apr 2, 2012, 6:10 PM EDT

    US Presswire photo Michael Morse is eligible to return from the DL as soon as April 10. Unable to ensure either player would have enough time to get back into game shape before Opening Day, the Nationals have decided to place outfielders Michael Morse and Rick Ankiel on the 15-day disabled list to begin the…

  10. Nats vs. Red Sox – 4/2/12

    Apr 2, 2012, 2:27 PM EDT

    US Presswire photo The brand-new JetBlue Park was designed to look like a miniature Fenway Park. They've packed their bags, they've left Space Coast Stadium for another year and the team charter is gassed up and ready to head north later tonight. First, though, the Nationals must play one more exhibition game in the state…
