  1. LaRoche just wants to be himself

    Mar 7, 2011, 4:00 PM EDT

    Photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER Adam LaRoche signed a two-year, $16 million contract with the Nats this winter. The Nationals’ new first baseman, like the Nationals’ old first baseman, is a left-handed-swinging, power-hitting, country boy named Adam whose easy-going personality makes him a well-respected and popular clubhouse figure. But let’s make this clear:…

  2. Nats vs. Braves – 3/6/11

    Mar 6, 2011, 4:49 PM EDT

    File photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER It's raining in D.C., and there's a chance of rain today at Space Coast Stadium. Well, this is indeed a treat: Today's game is both on TV and on the radio. First time this season you've got the opportunity to watch the new MASN team of Bob…

  3. Nats at Yankees – 3/5/11

    Mar 5, 2011, 4:30 PM EDT

    File photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER Steinbrenner Field, spring home of the New York Yankees. Big-name players don't usually make a 3-hour bus ride across the state for a road exhibition game. When the Nationals traveled to Tampa last spring to face the Yankees, hardly anyone of consequence played. But look what we've…

  4. Spring radio schedule

    Mar 4, 2011, 7:54 PM EDT

    I know a lot of you have been asking about this one. At long last, we have an official schedule of spring training games on the radio. WJFK (106.7 FM) is the new flagship station, as you’ve known for several weeks now. Most of the games this spring will be broadcast there, though a couple…

  5. Nats vs. Braves (ss) – 3/4/11

    Mar 4, 2011, 5:30 PM EDT

    File photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER Space Coast Stadium hosts the Braves today. Jason Marquis gets his first chance to pitch this spring today, hoping to build off his strong finish from last season and put his otherwise wretched 2010 completely behind him at last. The veteran right-hander has been in good health…

  6. Chico, Bisenius, Martis re-assigned

    Mar 4, 2011, 2:53 PM EDT

    The Nationals made their first cuts of spring training this morning, re-assigning left-hander Matt Chico and right-handers Joe Bisenius and Shairon Martis to minor-league camp. All three pitchers had been removed from the 40-man roster during the offseason, and though they were invited to big-league camp, none had a realistic shot of heading north with…

  7. Nats at Cardinals (ss) – 3/3/11

    Mar 3, 2011, 3:00 PM EDT

    File photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER Roger Dean Stadium in Jupiter, home of the St. Louis Cardinals. There's no question how important this season is for Jordan Zimmermann, who after battling back from Tommy John surgery is fully healthy and poised to develop into the quality starting pitcher the Nationals felt they were…

  8. Lannan, Maya and Bernadina

    Mar 3, 2011, 4:00 AM EDT

    Photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER John Lannan was sharp for two innings before struggling in the third. VIERA, Fla. — Well, three games into the exhibition season, the Nationals are undefeated. They disposed of the Mets twice and today toppled the Marlins, 8-4, at Space Coast Stadium. Too soon to start printing up…

  9. Ankiel’s unique perspective

    Mar 2, 2011, 9:27 PM EDT

    Photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER Rick Ankiel, once a pitching phenom, has resurrected his career as an outfielder. VIERA, Fla. — The newly acquired outfielder walked across the clubhouse, approached the young pitcher and extended his arm. “Hey, I’m Rick Ankiel,” he said. “Nice to meet you,” Stephen Strasburg replied. These kind of…

  10. Henry Rodriguez ready to roll

    Mar 2, 2011, 4:48 PM EDT

    VIERA, Fla. — Henry Rodriguez, the flame-throwing reliever acquired from Oakland in the Josh Willingham trade, arrived at Nationals camp today and believes it won’t take long to catch up to the rest of his new teammates. Rodriguez, 24, had been stuck in his native Venezuela the last two weeks waiting for his visa application…
