Updated at 11:48 a.m. At 11:15 a.m., Nationals manager Davey Johnson made it sound like Ian Desmond wouldn't be able to play today — and perhaps for several days — due to a potential oblique strain. Thirty minutes later, after some work…

Associated Press photo Gio Gonzalez wasn't happy after getting pulled one batter into the seventh inning. As much as Davey Johnson would like to count on baseball's best pitching staff to lead the way on a nightly basis, the Nationals manager knows it takes more than that to beat a high-powered opponent like the Yankees.…

Associated Press file photo Frank Robinson and Joe Torre meet before the Nats' 2006 series against the Yankees. It's been six years since the New York Yankees last appeared in Washington, D.C.

US Presswire photo Bryce Harper is hitting .303 with seven homers, 19 RBI and a .933 OPS. The notion was first offered about two weeks ago, and it's since picked up considerable steam. There remain 17 days until Major League Baseball announces its 2012 All-Star teams, but let's just say this now for the record.…

In case you missed this earlier, here is Bryce Harper’s now infamous quote from after Tuesday night’s win over the Blue Jays.
