Pat Listach, the Nationals' third base coach the last two seasons, is leaving the organization to become bench coach of the Cubs. An official announcement won't be made until after the conclusion of the World Series, but a source with knowledge of the decision confirmed Listach's departure. Listach has close ties both to the Cubs…

File photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER Nyjer Morgan and Jim Riggleman butted heads before this season's bench-clearing brawl. So Mike Shanahan and Donovan McNabb aren't exactly seeing eye-to-eye right now, huh? Rex Grossman gave the Redskins a better chance of winning in the final two minutes yesterday against one of the lowliest franchises…

Photo courtesy Texas Rangers The Rangers try to even up the series tonight in Arlington. Colby Lewis and Mitch Moreland did their part last night to get the Rangers back into this World Series. Now it's up to Tommy Hunter and others to sustain the momentum Texas generated last night and knot the Fall Classic…

Photo courtesy Texas Rangers The World Series comes to Arlington, Texas, for the first time tonight. For the first time this postseason, the Rangers really have their backs against the wall. Down 2-0 to the Giants, they desperately need a victory tonight to keep hope alive in this World Series. Fortunately, this matchup appears to…

Watching the Rangers' bullpen completely melt down in the eighth inning last night, I couldn't help but wonder how the Nationals' relief corps might have handled that situation. Seven runs allowed, all with two outs? Four straight walks, two with the bases loaded? Yeah, we've seen that before. At least one member of the Nats…

File photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER C.J. Wilson tries to even the series back up for the Rangers tonight at AT&T Park. After last night's out-of-the-blue slugfest, who knows what to expect tonight in Game 2 of the World Series? Will the offensive explosion continue, or will superior pitching finally prevail? Both starters…

A couple of Thursday morning thoughts while you try to comprehend how a World Series game started by Cliff Lee and Tim Lincecum wound up featuring 18 combined runs and 12 combined pitchers… Bryce Harper's performance in his third Arizona Fall League game didn't quite match those from his first two. The 18-year-old right fielder…

File photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER AT&T Park hosts a classic pitching matchup in Game 1 of the Fall Classic. And so it begins, this unlikely World Series. And what better way to begin than with one of the best pitching matchups anyone could cobble together for baseball's biggest event: Cliff Lee vs.…

File photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER For the Giants to beat the Rangers, Tim Lincecum will have to get the better of Cliff Lee. This may not be the Fall Classic everyone envisioned on April 1 — or even on October 1 — but it's the Fall Classic we've got. And it's the…

The Nationals announced this afternoon that Jim Riggleman will return as manager next season, a revelation that won’t take anyone by surprise since Riggleman was already under contract for 2011 and there had been no previous indication he wouldn’t be retained. Riggleman, who took over as interim manager during the 2009 All-Star break when Manny…
