    Apr 12, 2012, 5:00 PM EDT

    Photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER Nationals Park is all set for its first regular-season game of the season. It's a beautiful day for the ballgame. And it just so happens there's a ballgame being played in the nation's capital this afternoon. How fortuitous. After opening the season 4-2 in Chicago and New York,…

  2. Morse shut down at least 6 weeks

    Apr 12, 2012, 3:19 PM EDT

    Michael Morse will be in "total shutdown mode" for six weeks after aggravating the injury to his right lat muscle while playing in a minor-league rehab game earlier this week, leaving the Nationals without their cleanup hitter for quite some time. General manager Mike Rizzo said Morse re-injured himself while trying to make throws from…

  3. Storen has surgery to remove bone chip

    Apr 11, 2012, 11:32 PM EDT

    Drew Storen had surgery today to remove a small bone chip from his right elbow, a procedure that is expected to sideline the Nationals' closer for most of the season's first half. Surgery was performed by team doctor Wiemi Douoguih after orthopedist James Andrews yesterday examined an MRI of the 24-year-old reliever's elbow and confirmed…

  4. Instant analysis: Nats 4, Mets 0

    Apr 11, 2012, 8:48 PM EDT

    US Presswire photo Stephen Strasburg dominated the Mets over six scoreless innings. Game in a nutshell: In a highly anticipated matchup between a two-time Cy Young Award winner and out-dueled fireballer who hopes to win that award some day, Stephen Strasburg outshone Johan Santana. The Nationals didn't produce much at the plate, but they took…

  5. Game 6: Nats at Mets

    Apr 11, 2012, 3:08 PM EDT

    US Presswire file photo Aces Stephen Strasburg and Johan Santana meet today at Citi Field. With the title of "staff ace" comes an important responsibility: The daunting task of going up against fellow aces, especially early in the season when most teams' rotations are in sync. So Stephen Strasburg isn't only facing the Mets lineup…

  6. Minus Morse, where will runs come from?

    Apr 11, 2012, 4:38 AM EDT

    US Presswire photo Michael Morse's rehab stint has been put on hold indefinitely. In a week filled with discouraging injury news (see: Rendon, Anthony; and Storen, Drew) the latest update on Michael Morse is the harshest punch to the gut yet. Just when it appeared Morse would be ready to rejoin the Nationals in time…

  7. Game 5: Nats at Mets

    Apr 10, 2012, 7:19 PM EDT

    Associated Press photo Ross Detwiler makes his season debut tonight at Citi Field. They won two nailbiters, and now they've lost two nailbiters. Eventually, the Nationals will play a game that doesn't come down to the ninth inning, right? Right? Perhaps that will happen tonight in the second of a three-game series against the Mets.…

  8. Beltway Baseball Live – 4/10/12

    Apr 10, 2012, 2:00 PM EDT

    The season’s only four games old, but already there are no shortage of compelling storylines for the Nationals. There’s the resurgence of Adam LaRoche. There’s the continued struggles of Jayson Werth. And, of course, there’s now the lingering question of Drew Storen’s elbow. Chase Hughes of CSNwashington.com and Amanda Comak of the Washington Times joined…

  9. Can Nats survive without Storen?

    Apr 10, 2012, 4:22 AM EDT

    Contrary to popular belief, there have been actual, recorded cases of big-league pitchers traveling to Birmingham, Ala., to have their arms examined by Dr. James Andrews and not ending up on the operating table. But it doesn't happen very often, and typically a trip to see the noted orthopedist results in some kind of surgical…

  10. Game 4: Nats at Mets

    Apr 9, 2012, 7:45 PM EDT

    Associated Press photo The fences have been moved way in at Citi Field this season. OK, so it's only three games into the season, but who would have predicted the team sitting atop the NL East at this early stage would be the 3-0 … New York Mets?! Yep, the club everyone expects to finish…
