  1. The home stretch

    Mar 21, 2011, 2:25 PM EDT

    JUPITER, Fla. — Ah, it's never felt so good to type that dateline. Yes, I'm back in Florida and will be with the Nationals through the rest of camp. There is plenty still to sort out over the final eight games of the spring, from the battle for center field, the muddled picture in the…

  2. Nats vs. Tigers – 3/20/11

    Mar 20, 2011, 2:15 PM EDT

    File photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER The Tigers make a trip to Space Coast Stadium this afternoon. Plenty worth watching today as the Nationals attempt to snap their six-game losing streak in a game against the Tigers that will be broadcast on MASN. Tom Gorzelanny takes the mound for his third start of…

  3. Nats at Mets (ss) – 3/19/11

    Mar 19, 2011, 2:48 PM EDT

    File photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER Jason Marquis faces Chris Capuano this afternoon at Digital Domain Park. So much for those winning ways down in Florida. The Nationals have lost five straight entering today's game against the Mets in Port St. Lucie, with the pitching staff contributing largely to those woes. Jason Marquis,…

  4. Nats vs. Cardinals – 3/18/11

    Mar 18, 2011, 4:06 PM EDT

    File photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER The Nationals host the Cardinals today at Space Coast Stadium. Jordan Zimmermann has pitched 11 innings this spring and surrendered zero runs. For a guy everyone's counting on to step up and become a front-line starter, he couldn't be enjoying a more encouraging spring so far. Today,…

  5. From 38 to 25

    Mar 18, 2011, 2:13 PM EDT

    Photo courtesy Bill Scheuerman Veteran infielder Alex Cora is in the running for a roster spot. Yesterday's round of cuts at Nationals camp leaves 38 players remaining on the roster, with 11 days to go until the club heads north and 13 days to go until the Braves are in town for the season opener.…

  6. Nats at Braves – 3/17/11

    Mar 17, 2011, 9:00 PM EDT

    File photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER The Nats face the Braves tonight at Disney's Wide World of Sports. Pretty good test for the Nationals tonight against a Braves lineup that should bear quite a lot of resemblance to the one we'll see at Nationals Park two weeks from today. That includes Tim Hudson,…

  7. Marrero, Kimball, Brown optioned

    Mar 17, 2011, 5:29 PM EDT

    The Nationals optioned three players out of big-league camp today, sending first baseman Chris Marrero, right-hander Cole Kimball and outfielder Corey Brown to Class AAA Syracuse. They also re-assigned catcher Derek Norris to Class AA Harrisburg. None of the four was likely to make the Opening Day roster, but Marrero and Kimball each impressed team…

  8. Most important development of spring

    Mar 17, 2011, 1:55 PM EDT

    Photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER Jordan Zimmermann has yet to allow a run in 11 Grapefruit League innings. The NCAA Tournament begins today — don't try to tell me the Big Dance started Tuesday with those silly "First Four" games — which means the sports world will be in full college basketball mode…

  9. Nats at Astros – 3/16/11

    Mar 16, 2011, 5:00 PM EDT

    File photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER The Nationals travel to Osceola County Stadium today. After a sudden flurry of injuries yesterday, the Nationals are resting easier today. It doesn't appear any of those injuries are serious. Ryan Zimmerman will miss several days with a sore groin but insists he would play if this…

  10. Like Werth, Morse waited for opportunity

    Mar 16, 2011, 3:38 PM EDT

    Photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER Michael Morse seized the left fielder’s job with an impressive spring. Three years ago, Jayson Werth’s career was at a crossroads. Despite physical gifts and some mild success in the big leagues, the then-28-year-old outfielder still hadn’t been given a chance to establish himself as an everyday player.…
