    There was plenty to talk about on this week’s episode of The Baseball Show. The Nationals have been playing some of their best baseball of 2014 in recent weeks, the trade deadline coming up, plus Ryan Zimmerman’s latest injury. Could Zim’s absence force the Nats’ hand with the trade deadline approaching? Mark discussed that very…

    With the second half of the 2014 MLB season set to kick off, much of this week’s episode of ‘The Baseball Show’ centered around what the Nationals need to do to secure the NL East and make the playoffs. In this first clip Mark gives his keys to the Nats’ second half, including which players need to…

    The Nationals are currently lagging in All-Star voting with just over two weeks to go until the rosters are announced on July 6. Of course they will get at least one guy on the NL team, but who will it be? In this week’s episode of The Baseball Show, Mark discussed that very topic with…

    Though the Nationals have recently lost two consecutive games, overall it appears they have turned a corner of late. They are healthy and starting to see improvement all around their roster. Leading the way in recent weeks has been the Nationals’ rotation. In this first clip from this week’s The Baseball Show, Mark talks with Rob Carlin…

    On this week’s installment of ‘The Baseball Show,’ there were plenty of positives to discuss, as the Nationals are currently playing their best baseball of the season. In this first segment, Mark, Rob Carlin and Joe Orsulak talk about the importance of Ryan Zimmerman’s return. The Nats have won each of their three games since…

    This week’s episode of The Baseball Show, as you can expect, featured a lot of talk about injuries. The Nationals continue to see their best players head to the disabled list, while those who are left aim to keep the team in the division race. In this first clip from Thursday’s show, Mark Zuckerman talked…

    Having already dealt with an unusual amount of injuries this season, the Nats lost another regular to the disabled list in Adam LaRoche this week. On Sunday LaRoche was placed on the 15-day DL with a right quad strain, becoming the fifth member of the Nats’ Opening Day lineup to reach the disabled list already this…

    On this week’s episode of ‘The Baseball Show,’ much of the talk was about the Nationals’ staying afloat despite injuries. Even with several regulars landing on the disabled list early in the year, the Nats sit at 19-16 on May 10, just a half-game out of first in the division. One player they had been…

  9. The Baseball Show: On Roark, Harper and Jordan

    We touched on a bunch of Nats-related subjects on this week’s episode of The Baseball Show. Rob Carlin, Joe Orsulak and I looked at just how good Tanner Roark has been since debuting late last summer, comparing his stats to a fellow rotation mate who arrived with just a bit more hype than he did.…

  10. The Baseball Show: How can Nats fix their defense?

    On Thursday’s episode of ‘The Baseball Show,’ Mark discussed the Nationals’ defensive problems with Rob Carlin and Joe Orsulak. The Nats currently lead the majors with 25 errors in 23 games, and it’s continuing to cost them. Also, below is a segment I did on the comparisons between Bryce Harper and Mike Trout. Though everyone in the…

  11. The Baseball Show: How can Strasburg turn it around?

    On Thursday’s ‘The Baseball Show,’ one segment featured a discussion about the early season struggles of Stephen Strasburg. Strasburg through four starts carries a 1-2 record, 6.00 ERA and a WHIP that has soared to 1.571. The Nats’ rotation as a whole, in fact, is now second-to-last in baseball with a 5.21 ERA as a…

  12. The Baseball Show: How will Nats handle Zimmerman?

    Apr 12, 2014, 12:48 PM EDT

    Zimmerman's error looms large in Nats' loss

    The problems Ryan Zimmerman has had throwing the ball from third base have presented a unique problem for the Nationals. There is really no recent precedent for a guy who can throw lasers on the most difficult plays (including when bats are flying over his head), yet can’t hit his target on the routine ones.…

  13. The Baseball Show: Nats will have to make do without Ramos

    Apr 5, 2014, 10:19 AM EDT

    Ramos back tomorrow, Haren on Tuesday

    The Baseball Show is back for the 2014 season, and this week marked the first episode featuring real games to talk about. Unfortunately a lot of the discussion centered around Wilson Ramos and his recent injury news. Ramos has dealt with a variety of injuries over the course of his five major league seasons and his…

    Last night was this year’s first episode of ‘The Baseball Show,’ a spring training special to get you ready for the new season.

    There are now only two weeks remaining until the Nationals break camp in Viera and head north, and a mere 18 days until the season opens at Citi Field. Suffice it to say, baseball season is nearly upon us. Which means it’s time for the return of “The Baseball Show” on Comcast SportsNet. Yes, we’re…
