  • Video interlude

    Since we haven't shot any new videos of our own since we moved to the new Web site, here's one from our friends over at MASN. Published May 31 2008

  • Wee Willie Harris

    A quick tip of the cap to Willie Harris, who won last night's game with a 3-run homer off Micah Owings in the seventh inning, snapping a 3-3 tie in most surprising fashion. Published May 31 2008

  • Zim watch, Day 5

    Ryan Zimmerman is out of the Nationals' lineup for the fifth straight game tonight, his left shoulder still not healed enough to allow him to play without some pain. And it sounds like Zim's going to miss another game tomorrow, with an eye on returning for Sunday's series finale here in Arizona. Published May 30 2008

  • He's not Peyton Manning (Or Eli)

    No, he's Charlie Manning, and he may not be wearing a Nats uniform much longer. The rookie left-hander just served up a towering, three-run homer to Jody Gerut (Jody Gerut!) to give the Padres a 5-2 lead in the bottom of the eighth. Published May 29 2008

  • No decision for Lannan

    John Lannan authored yet another fine pitching performance for the Nats today -- two runs, five hits over six innings -- but emerged with no decision. Published May 29 2008
