    Adam LaRoche returned from his nearly weeklong tour of U.S. military bases overseas yesterday, flying into Washington alongside Willie and Jep Roberston from Duck Dynasty and former Patriots offensive lineman Matt Light. Before each of them flew back home, they decided to meet with a few Nationals beat writers to discuss the experience. I’ll have…

    Nationals manager Matt Williams knows he is taking over a team with sky-high expectations. After winning 98 games in 2012 the Nats took a big step back by missing the playoffs with only 86 victories in 2013. Williams says the team hopes to reach their full potential in 2014, and make amends for what happened this…

    Six years after opening Nationals Park the Nats want to renovate. NBC Washington has reported the Nationals’ plans to build a roof over the 41,000 seat stadium in Southeast D.C. They are, as of now, just ‘plans’ as the city would have to not only approve of the project, but pay for it. Mark Segraves…

    At Matt Williams’ introductory press conference at Nationals Park, three Nats players decided to show up to meet their new manager. Ian Desmond, Tanner Roark and Jayson Werth were all in attendance, ready to move forward with their new skipper. But though Werth and Williams met each other for the first time that day, it…

    After losing last night to Atlanta, and watching the Reds pull one out in extra innings over the Astros, the Nationals enter this four-game series against the Marlins with an extra dose of pressure. There are ten games left and they may not be able to afford any more losses, much less one to the…

    Whew, what a game that was this afternoon. After that, are you all ready for another one? The Nats and Braves pick right back up after perhaps the wildest win of the Nationals’ 2013 season. Rookie Tanner Roark (6-0, 1.30) will look to keep the momentum going as Atlanta sends right-hander Freddy Garcia (4-6, 4.86)…

    After the tragedy at the Navy Yard on Monday caused a postponement of their game, the Nationals and Braves will play a day-night doubleheader on Tuesday with the first starting at 1:05 p.m. The same pitchers who were set to go on Monday will take the ball today as lefty Mike Minor and Dan Haren…

    The Nationals return home having won six consecutive games and eight of their last nine. Tonight they try and keep it going with the first of a three-game series against the Phillies. The Nats will open their homestand without Stephen Strasburg who was a late scratch due to forearm tightness. Ross Ohlendorf is starting in…

    The Nationals didn’t exactly start this series in the ideal way, taking the loss with some questions about Bryce Harper’s effort coming out on Friday night. Today they try to turn the page and get back to their recent winning ways with Dan Haren on the mound. Haren (8-11, 4.66) is coming off his worst…

    Fresh of a sweep of the Marlins, their fifth series win in their last six overall, the Nationals pick up again on Friday night against the lowly New York Mets. It presents yet another opportunity for the Nats to take advantage of a reeling opponent as they try to chip away at a 6.5 game…
