  1. Most important development of spring

    Mar 17, 2011, 1:55 PM EDT

    Photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER Jordan Zimmermann has yet to allow a run in 11 Grapefruit League innings. The NCAA Tournament begins today — don't try to tell me the Big Dance started Tuesday with those silly "First Four" games — which means the sports world will be in full college basketball mode…

  2. Nats at Astros – 3/16/11

    Mar 16, 2011, 5:00 PM EDT

    File photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER The Nationals travel to Osceola County Stadium today. After a sudden flurry of injuries yesterday, the Nationals are resting easier today. It doesn't appear any of those injuries are serious. Ryan Zimmerman will miss several days with a sore groin but insists he would play if this…

  3. Like Werth, Morse waited for opportunity

    Mar 16, 2011, 3:38 PM EDT

    Photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER Michael Morse seized the left fielder’s job with an impressive spring. Three years ago, Jayson Werth’s career was at a crossroads. Despite physical gifts and some mild success in the big leagues, the then-28-year-old outfielder still hadn’t been given a chance to establish himself as an everyday player.…

  4. Nats at Mets – 3/15/11

    Mar 15, 2011, 8:00 PM EDT

    File photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER The Mets host the Nats tonight at Digital Domain Park. There are officially two weeks of spring training remaining. Fourteen days from now, the Nationals will be packing their bags and boarding a charter flight north in preparation for Opening Day. Which means it's time for everyone…

  6. Does a winning spring record matter?

    Mar 15, 2011, 2:13 PM EDT

    Photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER Jason Marquis is one of several Nats starters pitching brilliantly this spring. First off, a programming note: We're attempting to do a live version of "Beltway Baseball" at 1 p.m. today, with producer Chase Hughes and myself talking all things Nats from the digital studio at CSN…

  7. Nats vs. Tigers – 3/14/11

    Mar 14, 2011, 5:02 PM EDT

    File photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER The Tigers visit Space Coast Stadium this afternoon. Jason Marquis has been nothing short of fantastic this spring, tossing seven scoreless innings having allowed only three hits and a walk while striking out four. It creates an interesting dilemma for the Nationals. If Marquis keeps this up,…

  8. What jobs are still up for grabs?

    Mar 14, 2011, 2:45 PM EDT

    Photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER Craig Stammen is trying to win a spot in the Nationals' bullpen. The midway point of spring training has come and gone, and though the Nationals haven't quite reached the home stretch, it's fast approaching. Over these final 2 1/2 weeks of camp, the Nats have a number…

  9. Nats at Marlins – 3/13/11

    Mar 13, 2011, 3:19 PM EDT

    File photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER The Nats are back in Jupiter again today to face the Marlins. It's been four whole days since the Nationals last played the Marlins, so I think contractually they were required to make the trip down to Jupiter this morning. I kid, of course, but it sure…

  10. Harper impressive but has much to learn

    Mar 12, 2011, 11:24 PM EDT

    Photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER Physically and mentally, Bryce Harper looked like he belonged in big-league camp. Did Bryce Harper, optioned to low-Class A Hagerstown late this afternoon, actually make the decision difficult for the Nationals? Did his performance in 13 Grapefruit League games — a .389 batting average, three doubles, five RBI…
