    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…

  3. 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…

  4. 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,…

  5. 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…

  6. 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…

  7. 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…

  8. Harper optioned to Hagerstown

    Mar 12, 2011, 9:50 PM EDT

    Bryce Harper was among four players cut by the Nationals following today's 6-5 win over the Yankees, bringing an end to the 18-year-old's first experience in a big-league spring training camp. Harper was optioned to low-Class A Hagerstown, where he is expected to begin the season. The three other players sent down were left-hander Atahualpa…

  9. Nats vs. Yankees – 3/12/11

    Mar 12, 2011, 3:47 PM EDT

    File photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER The Nationals host the Yankees this afternoon at Space Coast Stadium. For the first time ever, the Yankees are playing in Viera. Well, I suppose I should amend that to say a couple of Yankees are playing in Viera. The majority of the guys wearing the famous…

  10. Nats vs. Astros – 3/11/11

    Mar 11, 2011, 10:18 PM EDT

    File photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER The Nationals host the Astros tonight at Space Coast Stadium. Plenty worth watching during the Nationals' game tonight against the Astros. Good thing it's on MASN for your viewing pleasure. Livan Hernandez gets the start and is scheduled to go as many as five innings. Ross Detwiler…
