  1. 1-on-1 with Drew Storen

    May 15, 2011, 6:16 PM EDT

    Drew Storen entered today’s game as one of the hottest relievers in the majors, having not allowed an earned run since his first appearance of the year, boasting an 0.40 ERA and eight saves in eight opportunities. The right-hander was nice enough to sit down with me this morning and talk about his performance so…

  2. Game 40: Marlins at Nats

    May 15, 2011, 3:06 PM EDT

    Photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER The Nationals wrap up their series with the Marlins this afternoon. The Nationals came home two days ago feeling pretty good about themselves, having just taken road series at both Florida and Atlanta. Two days later, they find themselves needing to beat the Marlins just to avoid a…

  3. Still not hitting at the quarter pole

    May 14, 2011, 10:26 PM EDT

    US Presswire photo Jayson Werth and the Nationals haven’t been making solid contact all season. There’s a prevailing belief in baseball that no real conclusions can be drawn about a team until Memorial Day. By that point, the season is about 33 percent complete, and typically a team’s performance through late May is going to…

  4. Game 39: Marlins at Nats

    May 14, 2011, 4:16 PM EDT

    Photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER After a tough loss last night, the Nationals try to bounce back today. Plenty going on in advance of this afternoon's ballgame. First up, if you didn't see the news below, the Nationals designated Brian Broderick for assignment and recalled Cole Kimball from Class AAA Sryacuse, giving the…

  5. Broderick DFA’d, Kimball recalled

    May 14, 2011, 4:02 PM EDT

    The Nationals designated Brian Broderick for assignment this morning and recalled fellow right-hander Cole Kimball from Class AAA Syracuse to take his spot in the bullpen. Broderick is now available for any other club in the majors to claim off waivers, though as a Rule 5 draftee he would have to remain on their big-league…

  6. Game of inches

    May 14, 2011, 5:12 AM EDT

    Associated Press photo Omar Infante’s nifty slide around Wilson Ramos proved the difference tonight. The Nationals don’t play a lot of lopsided games these days. No, every contest seems to come down to one or two critical moments late. A big at-bat with runners in scoring position. A 3-2 pitch from a reliever in a…

  7. Nix emerging as everyday left fielder

    May 13, 2011, 11:09 PM EDT

    The Nationals signed Laynce Nix to a minor-league contract in February not because they envisioned him starting every day in left field but because they envisioned him serving as a fallback option in case other things didn’t go right. Well, other things have indeed not gone right. And combined with his own strong showing at…

  8. Game 38: Marlins at Nats

    May 13, 2011, 7:31 PM EDT

    Photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER After a mostly successful road trip, the Nats are back home tonight. It's been 11 days since the Nationals last played a home game, and plenty has transpired since then. There was a sweep at the hands of the Phillies in Philadelphia, then an impressive series win in…

  9. Back in business

    May 13, 2011, 4:42 PM EDT

    If you’ve been trying to access since Thursday afternoon, you’ve surely noticed the site hasn’t been working properly. That’s because Google’s Blogger platform, under which Nats Insider is published, experienced a major technological glitch Thursday while attempting to institute an update. All Blogger-published blogs around the world, including Nats Insider, were stuck in “Read-Only”…

  10. Game 37: Nats at Braves

    Comments Off on Game 37: Nats at Braves

    File photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER The Nats try to finish their road trip with a winning record tonight at Turner Field. What would you have thought one week ago, right after the Nationals were swept in Philadelphia, if I said they'd have a chance to end this nine-game road trip with a…
