ATLANTA — Jim Riggleman held a closed-door team meeting before batting practice this afternoon, the first tangible sign of dissatisfaction from the Nationals manager toward his team's recent play. Nats players were already scheduled…

ATLANTA — Hello from Turner Field, where the Stephen Strasburg Summer Tour arrives tonight. This one has been particularly hyped-up, because of the potential for three or four confrontations between Strasburg and Braves Rookie of Year…

Good morning, NatsTown. At least, I hope it's a good morning for all of you considering the events of the past three days in Baltimore. I'm at Dulles, waiting for my flight to Atlanta — great matchup tonight between Stephen Strasburg and Tim Hudson — so I don't have time to put together a comprehensive…

BALTIMORE — Twelve losses in their last 15 games. Six of those losses by one run, including four straight. And a weekend sweep at the hands of baseball’s worst team after leading each of those games by at least three runs. Suffice it to say, the Nationals’ clubhouse is not the happiest place on earth…

BALTIMORE — Craig Stammen is the likeliest candidate to be recalled from Class AAA Syracuse to start Tuesday night in Atlanta. Stammen, who was optioned to Syracuse earlier this month to make room for Stephen Strasburg's arrival, has righted his ship in the minors. In three starts with the Chiefs, he is 2-0 with a…

Photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER The Nats try to avoid a sweep today at sweltering Camden Yards. BALTIMORE — It's hot. No, I mean it's really hot. It was 91 degrees at 10 a.m. It's going to be 94 at gametime and 97 by the ninth inning. If this game was being played…

Photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER They'll be turning back the clocks at Camden Yards today. Fresh off a devastating, 7-6 loss last night, the Nationals return to Camden Yards this afternoon hoping to rebound against the Orioles. For anyone who was infuriated with Cristian Guzman's defense last night, rest assured: He's DH'ing today,…

Photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER Thanks to the Nats' gaffes, the Orioles were the ones celebrating at night's end. BALTIMORE — Ian Desmond stood before his locker in an otherwise silent Nationals clubhouse, the kind of silence that only accompanies the kind of crushing loss like tonight's debacle at Camden Yards, and tried…

BALTIMORE — Willie Harris is a realist. He knows he’s not carrying his weight right now. Actually, he knows he’s not hitting his weight, either. The Nationals’ super-utility man carried a paltry .151 batting average into tonight’s game against the Orioles and an 0-for-20 streak that dates back to June 3, the last time he…
