  1. Beltway Baseball: Episode 2

    Mar 10, 2011, 2:37 PM EDT

    Being back in D.C. during the middle of spring training has its obvious disadvantages. But on the bright side, it does allow me to head over to Comcast SportsNet's studios to shoot some video segments. Yesterday, I joined web producer Chase Hughes for the latest installment of a show we're calling "Beltway Baseball" to discuss…

  2. Nats at Marlins – 3/9/11

    Mar 9, 2011, 2:35 PM EDT

    File photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER The Nats travel to Roger Dean Stadium in Jupiter to face the Marlins. Some of you have been asking about Ryan Zimmerman's absence from the lineup the last couple days due to a strained oblique muscle, and whether this injury is any cause for concern. By all…

  3. Nats at Mets (ss) – 3/8/11

    Mar 8, 2011, 3:14 PM EDT

    File photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER Digital Domain Park, spring home of the New York Mets. The Nationals are only eight games into their Grapefruit League schedule, so it's too soon to pay a whole lot of attention to stats. Really, you always have to look at spring training stats with some level…

  4. Nats vs. Astros – 3/7/11

    Mar 7, 2011, 6:00 PM EDT

    File photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER The Nationals host the Astros today at Space Coast Stadium. After getting two-hit by the Braves yesterday, the Nationals have a few more regulars in the lineup for this afternoon's game against the Astros. And for the first time this spring, they've got Adam LaRoche at first…

  5. LaRoche just wants to be himself

    Mar 7, 2011, 4:00 PM EDT

    Photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER Adam LaRoche signed a two-year, $16 million contract with the Nats this winter. The Nationals’ new first baseman, like the Nationals’ old first baseman, is a left-handed-swinging, power-hitting, country boy named Adam whose easy-going personality makes him a well-respected and popular clubhouse figure. But let’s make this clear:…

  6. Nats vs. Braves – 3/6/11

    Mar 6, 2011, 4:49 PM EDT

    File photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER It's raining in D.C., and there's a chance of rain today at Space Coast Stadium. Well, this is indeed a treat: Today's game is both on TV and on the radio. First time this season you've got the opportunity to watch the new MASN team of Bob…

  7. Nats at Yankees – 3/5/11

    Mar 5, 2011, 4:30 PM EDT

    File photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER Steinbrenner Field, spring home of the New York Yankees. Big-name players don't usually make a 3-hour bus ride across the state for a road exhibition game. When the Nationals traveled to Tampa last spring to face the Yankees, hardly anyone of consequence played. But look what we've…

  8. Spring radio schedule

    Mar 4, 2011, 7:54 PM EDT

    I know a lot of you have been asking about this one. At long last, we have an official schedule of spring training games on the radio. WJFK (106.7 FM) is the new flagship station, as you’ve known for several weeks now. Most of the games this spring will be broadcast there, though a couple…

  9. Nats vs. Braves (ss) – 3/4/11

    Mar 4, 2011, 5:30 PM EDT

    File photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER Space Coast Stadium hosts the Braves today. Jason Marquis gets his first chance to pitch this spring today, hoping to build off his strong finish from last season and put his otherwise wretched 2010 completely behind him at last. The veteran right-hander has been in good health…

  10. Chico, Bisenius, Martis re-assigned

    Mar 4, 2011, 2:53 PM EDT

    The Nationals made their first cuts of spring training this morning, re-assigning left-hander Matt Chico and right-handers Joe Bisenius and Shairon Martis to minor-league camp. All three pitchers had been removed from the 40-man roster during the offseason, and though they were invited to big-league camp, none had a realistic shot of heading north with…
