US Presswire photo Jim Riggleman resigned with a 140-172 record as Nats manager, 662-824 overall. This was Jim Riggleman’s dream job, and he knew it. Unfortunately for Riggleman, the Washington Nationals also knew it. Which is why they were able to treat him like the lowliest manager in the big leagues. They held all the…

Associated press photo John Lannan was effective yet again, earning his fifth win of the season. Ryan Zimmerman and John Lannan have been members of the Nationals organization for six years now, both having been among the club’s first draft class in 2005.

US Presswire photo Todd Coffey and his bullpen mates have been phenomenal over the last two weeks. Lost amid the high drama of Tuesday night’s ninth-inning comeback was the exceptional work done by the Nationals bullpen to give its lineup a chance at rallying to beat the Mariners.
