  1. Game 146: Nats at Mets

    Sep 13, 2011, 7:27 PM EST

    File photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER Chien-Ming Wang faces Dillon Gee tonight at Citi Field. It's no secret what Chien-Ming Wang's biggest bugaboo has been this season: The first inning. For whatever reason, the right-hander hasn't been able to consistently navigate his way through that opening frame without suffering some kind of damage.…

  2. Beltway Baseball Live – 9/13/11

    Sep 13, 2011, 11:00 AM EST

    It had been a couple of weeks since our last Beltway Baseball show — that pesky new baby thing kind of got in the way — but we returned today with an all-new live episode. CSNwashington.com's Chase Hughes and I discussed Stephen Strasburg, Ross Detwiler and Chris Marrero, among other topics. We also answered your…

    File photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER Citi Field hosts the Nats this week. The Nationals want to use this month of September to gauge the readiness of several young players, and there are several of them in the lineup for tonight's series opener against the Mets.

  5. Three smurfy innings for Strasburg

    Sep 11, 2011, 10:31 PM EST

    Photo via Jesus Flores’ Twitter account Stephen Strasburg (in red) and others were forced to dress as Smurfs postgame. Much as he and everyone else would like to believe it, Stephen Strasburg knows he’s not going to have a perfect feel for his pitches every time he takes the mound in his return from Tommy…

  6. Game 144: Astros at Nats

    Sep 11, 2011, 3:10 PM EST

    Photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER Stephen Strasburg makes his second start of the season today at Nationals Park. It's Sept. 11 in the nation's capital, and while this date surely brings back awful memories from 10 years ago, I believe it also brings back some incredibly inspiring memories of watching baseball in the…

    Sep 11, 2011, 3:34 AM EST

    Associated Press photo John Lannan was tagged for six runs in the third inning before getting yanked. The ball trickled about 40 feet from the plate, between the mound and third base, a little dribbler that might have allowed John Lannan to escape the third inning Saturday night without suffering extensive damage. Instead, the inning…

    Sep 10, 2011, 10:00 PM EST

    Brad Peacock will probably start one of the Nationals' games next week in New York, manager Davey Johnson said today. Peacock — who earlier today was named the organization's minor-league pitcher of the year after going a combined 15-3 with a 2.39 ERA in 23 starts at Class AA Harrisburg and Class AAA Syracuse —…

    Sep 10, 2011, 7:36 PM EST

    Photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER John Lannan faces Wandy Rodriguez tonight at Nationals Park. Fresh off an 11-inning victory last night, the Nationals are back in action tonight against the woebegone Astros, who yesterday managed to lose reliever Sergio Escalona for the season after he stepped on a coach's glove during BP and…
