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…

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…

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…

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…

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…

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…

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…

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…
