  1. Broderick DFA’d, Kimball recalled

    May 14, 2011, 4:02 PM EDT

    The Nationals designated Brian Broderick for assignment this morning and recalled fellow right-hander Cole Kimball from Class AAA Syracuse to take his spot in the bullpen. Broderick is now available for any other club in the majors to claim off waivers, though as a Rule 5 draftee he would have to remain on their big-league…

  2. Game of inches

    May 14, 2011, 5:12 AM EDT

    Associated Press photo Omar Infante’s nifty slide around Wilson Ramos proved the difference tonight. The Nationals don’t play a lot of lopsided games these days. No, every contest seems to come down to one or two critical moments late. A big at-bat with runners in scoring position. A 3-2 pitch from a reliever in a…

  3. Nix emerging as everyday left fielder

    May 13, 2011, 11:09 PM EDT

    The Nationals signed Laynce Nix to a minor-league contract in February not because they envisioned him starting every day in left field but because they envisioned him serving as a fallback option in case other things didn’t go right. Well, other things have indeed not gone right. And combined with his own strong showing at…

  4. Game 38: Marlins at Nats

    May 13, 2011, 7:31 PM EDT

    Photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER After a mostly successful road trip, the Nats are back home tonight. It's been 11 days since the Nationals last played a home game, and plenty has transpired since then. There was a sweep at the hands of the Phillies in Philadelphia, then an impressive series win in…

  5. Back in business

    May 13, 2011, 4:42 PM EDT

    If you’ve been trying to access NatsInsider.com since Thursday afternoon, you’ve surely noticed the site hasn’t been working properly. That’s because Google’s Blogger platform, under which Nats Insider is published, experienced a major technological glitch Thursday while attempting to institute an update. All Blogger-published blogs around the world, including Nats Insider, were stuck in “Read-Only”…

    File photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER The Nats try to finish their road trip with a winning record tonight at Turner Field. What would you have thought one week ago, right after the Nationals were swept in Philadelphia, if I said they'd have a chance to end this nine-game road trip with a…

  7. For Harper, seeing is believing

    May 12, 2011, 4:17 AM EDT

    Associated Press photo Bryce Harper’s offensive surge has coincided with his improved vision. Bryce Harper never had poor vision. Like millions of others, he always saw well enough to get through life without needing corrective lenses. And he certainly didn’t appear to have trouble playing baseball, dominating the high school and junior-college levels like perhaps…

  8. Game 36: Nats at Braves

    May 11, 2011, 6:57 PM EDT

    File photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER The Nationals try to make it two in a row tonight at Turner Field. John Lannan was not very good the last time he stood on a mound facing a big-league opponent. His two-inning outing in Philadelphia was among the worst in his career, and it left…

  10. Game 35: Nats at Braves

    May 10, 2011, 8:37 PM EDT

    File photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER The Nationals face longtime nemesis Tim Hudson tonight at Turner Field. The last thing a struggling lineup needs right now is a date with a pitcher who historically has dominated this franchise like few others. But that's what the Nationals get tonight in Tim Hudson and the…
