  1. 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…

  2. 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.…

  3. 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…

  4. 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…

  5. 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…

  6. LaRoche’s power stroke is back

    Apr 9, 2012, 12:58 PM EDT

    US Presswire photo Adam LaRoche has clubbed two homers in as many days. CHICAGO — Forget for a moment the Nationals' offensive woes during yesterday's 4-3 loss to the Cubs. Forget Jordan Zimmermann's efficient seven innings of work. Forget Gio Gonzalez's struggles on Saturday. And forget the dominant performances from just about every member of…

  7. Still searching for some early offense

    Apr 8, 2012, 11:20 PM EDT

    Associated Press photo Danny Espinosa and the Nats have scored just three runs in innings 1-7 this season. CHICAGO — The Nationals don't seem to have any trouble putting runs on the board late. But early in games? Well, that's an entirely different story. So in the wake of a frustrating, 4-3 loss to the…

  8. Instant analysis: Cubs 4, Nats 3

    Apr 8, 2012, 8:43 PM EDT

    US Presswire photo Jordan Zimmermann was sharp and efficient in his season debut, but took the loss. Game in a nutshell: Following their usual script, the Nationals did nothing at the plate for seven innings. Unlike the previous two games, though, they had no late magic and wound up wasting Jordan Zimmermann's gem and an…

  9. Rendon diagnosis: "badly sprained" ankle

    Apr 8, 2012, 5:12 PM EDT

    Associated Press photo Top draft pick Anthony Rendon injured himself running the bases last night. CHICAGO — Nationals prospect Anthony Rendon has been diagnosed with a "badly sprained" left ankle, according to a club spokesman, after slipping while rounding third base during last night's Class A Potomac game at Lynchburg. X-rays taken on Rendon's ankle…

  10. Game 3: Nats at Cubs

    Apr 8, 2012, 3:25 PM EDT

    Photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER The Nationals go for the three-game sweep this afternoon at Wrigley Field. CHICAGO — It's been four years since the Nationals last opened a season 3-0. (We'll ignore for now the part where that 2008 club proceeded to 56-102 the rest of the way.) Today, Davey Johnson's team…
