  1. A life worth celebrating

    Nov 3, 2010, 12:00 PM EDT

    Mildred Zuckerman was hardly an expert on sports, but she tried her best to keep up to date so she could carry a conversation with her oldest grandson and feign as though she knew what she was talking about. She would make sure to check the various standings in the sports section on a regular…

  2. Nats hire Porter as 3B coach

    Nov 2, 2010, 8:22 PM EDT

    Updated at 7:35 p.m. In searching for a new third base coach, the Nationals turned to a man they already felt like they knew, even though he'd never previously worked for the organization. Bo Porter, who was hired today to take the position vacated this week by Pat Listach, played for the Cubs in 1999…

  3. Spring training schedule out

    Nov 2, 2010, 7:15 PM EDT

    The champagne hasn't even been cleaned out of the visitors' clubhouse at Rangers Ballpark in Arlington and already we're ready to talk about spring training. The Nationals just released their 2011 Grapefruit League schedule. No real surprises; the slate features all the usual suspects. For the second straight year, the Nats are scheduled to play…

  4. One season following another

    Nov 2, 2010, 3:03 PM EDT

    And so the 2010 baseball season has ended, with a World Series champion few saw coming. (I will point out this humble scribe picked the Giants to win the NL West back on Opening Day and picked the Giants to beat the Rangers in seven games. I probably also need to point out this same…

  5. WS Game 5: Giants at Rangers

    Nov 1, 2010, 11:00 PM EDT

    Photo courtesy Texas Rangers Will the Giants win it all, or will the Rangers keep the series going? What began on cloverleafs of practice fields across Florida and Arizona towns nearly nine months ago could come to an end tonight. Yep, the baseball season could be over by night's conclusion if the Giants can win…

  6. Listach leaving for Cubs bench

    Nov 1, 2010, 5:44 PM EDT

    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…

  7. Coach vs. QB, manager vs. player

    Nov 1, 2010, 3:05 PM EDT

    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…

  8. WS Game 4: Giants at Rangers

    Oct 31, 2010, 11:00 PM EDT

    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…

  9. WS Game 3: Giants at Rangers

    Oct 30, 2010, 10:30 PM EDT

    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…

  10. How big is bullpen depth?

    Oct 29, 2010, 2:15 PM EDT

    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…
