Photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER Nationals Park will be sold out tonight with the Yankees in town. Rarely, if ever, have the Nationals entered a series with so much hype surrounding them. Hype, as we all know, gets you nothing once a batter steps in the box and a pitcher is handed the…

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. It feels like 600. The three starters then-Nationals manager Frank Robinson sent to the mound during that Father's Day weekend in 2006: Shawn…

Thanks to everyone who came out to tonight’s inaugural CSN Nats Insider Party. It was great to see so many people turn out on a weeknight, and of course it was great to be able to put some faces to names (and online pseudonyms). Thanks to CSN’s Mark Lapidus, Brian Potter and Glendalyn Junio for…

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. He may now own the most famous utterance of “bro” since a University of Florida student asked John Kerry about the Skull and Bones. Do you agree the question was out of line…

US Presswire photo Stephen Strasburg struck out eight over six strong innings. Game in a nutshell: With an opportunity to sweep their second consecutive series in an AL park and complete the first 6-0 road trip in team history, the Nationals left little to chance. They pounced on the Blue Jays early and then blasted…

US Presswire file photo The Nationals try to complete a sweep today at Rogers Centre. In their seven-plus seasons in D.C., the Nationals have never gone 6-0 on a road trip. The way things are going in 2012, this probably won't be the last time they have an opportunity to do something they've never done…

Remember how daunting this 33-game stretch against only NL East and AL East teams was supposed to be for the Nationals? Well, with Tuesday night's 4-2 victory in Toronto, they're now two-thirds of the way through this gantlet and they've gone 14-8. Not bad. Not bad at all. But wait, there's more… With this latest…

US Presswire file photo The Nats go for their fifth straight win tonight at Rogers Centre. The start of Chien-Ming Wang's season hasn't exactly gone the way the Nationals (or the veteran right-hander) hoped it would, but tonight he'll get a chance to right his ship when he takes the mound in Toronto. Wang showed…
