    Read the full story with quotes from Rizzo on CSNwashington.com The Nationals have given Mike Rizzo a five-year contract extension and promoted him to executive vice president of baseball operations and and general manager.

  2. Who would be Nats’ postseason hero?

    Oct 19, 2010, 1:52 PM EDT

    Photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER Ryan Zimmerman has always had a flair for the dramatic. Could he do it in October? It seems safe to say that the 2010 postseason will be remembered as the Postseason of Cliff Lee. Unless it's the Postseason of Roy Halladay. Or the Postseason of Tim Lincecum. October…

  3. ALCS Game 3: Rangers at Yankees

    Oct 18, 2010, 11:00 PM EDT

    Photo courtesy New York Yankees The Yankees have to beat Cliff Lee or else fall behind 2-1 to the Rangers. The Rangers are basically right where they wanted to be entering Game 3 of the ALCS: Tied at one game apiece, with ace Cliff Lee on the mound tonight at Yankee Stadium. That said, this…

  4. Looking at 2011 payroll

    Oct 18, 2010, 2:40 PM EDT

    Photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER Even if they re-sign Adam Dunn, the Nats should have plenty of leftover money for payroll. At this early stage of the offseason — with the four LCS finalists still playing and thus the 26 other clubs unable to do much in the way of roster reconfiguration for…

  5. NLCS Game 2: Giants at Phillies

    Oct 17, 2010, 11:00 PM EDT

    File photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER The Phillies try to even the series back up tonight at Citizens Bank Park. Rarely during the last three postseasons have the Phillies found themselves trailing their opposition. In fact, they won seven consecutive Game 1s from the 2008 NLDS through this year's NLDS. But after losing…

  6. NLCS Game 1: Giants at Phillies

    Oct 16, 2010, 11:30 PM EDT

    File photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER Citizens Bank Park hosts the pitching matchup of the year tonight. Here we go: It's the pitching showdown you've been waiting all week to watch. Roy Halladay vs. Tim Lincecum. Mr. No-Hitter vs. Mr. 14 Strikeouts. Vegas has set the over-under on this game at 6. I'm…

  7. Listach will interview with Brewers

    Oct 16, 2010, 10:53 PM EDT

    The Brewers have asked for permission to interview third base coach Pat Listach for their open managerial position, and general manager Mike Rizzo has granted the request. Listach, who is preparing to manage in the Puerto Rican winter league, confirmed he will fly to Milwaukee and interview with GM Doug Melvin on Tuesday. The 43-year-old…

  8. ALCS Game 2: Yankees at Rangers

    Oct 16, 2010, 7:00 PM EDT

    Photo courtesy Texas Rangers The Yankees look to take a commanding 2-0 series lead at Rangers Ballpark in Arlington. After a dramatic rally from five runs down last night, the Yankees now find themselves in the driver's seat in the ALCS. Win again today, and they head home up 2-0 on the Rangers. Even if…

  9. ALCS Game 1: Yankees at Rangers

    Oct 15, 2010, 11:00 PM EDT

    Photo courtesy Texas Rangers Rangers Ballpark in Arlington hosts its first ALCS beginning tonight. For all the attention lavished upon CC Sabathia (and deservedly so) let's not forget the left-hander who will be taking the mound tonight for the Rangers. C.J. Wilson is quite deserving of attention himself, having transformed himself from a middle reliever…

  10. LCS Preview

    Oct 15, 2010, 2:36 PM EDT

    File photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER Roy Halladay starts Game 1 of the NLCS for the Phillies tomorrow night. It's hard to imagine the next round of the postseason matching the previous one for sheer drama. In the four Division Series alone, we saw a no-hitter, a 14-strikeout game, two Cliff Lee starts…
