Latest Brad Lidge Items
Here is a list of random news stories surrounding the Nationals. One involves the band One Direction.
Brad Lidge knew it was coming. The veteran right-hander approached Nationals General Manager Mike Rizzo in the clubhouse Sunday morning to ask if he was ready to talk. Rizzo delivered the news that Lidge least wanted to hear, but expected.
The Washington Nationals designated struggling reliever Brad Lidge for assignment Sunday and activated reliever Ryan Mattheus.
As he rounded third base, Tyler Moore looked up and saw that Nationals third-base coach Bo Porter was waving him on. So Moore kept running the 90 feet that separated him from scoring.
The words came out of manager Davey Johnson's mouth firmly and knowingly. Hours before the Washington Nationals would take the field against the New York Yankees in a 7-2 loss, Johnson uttered lines that would prove prophetic.
Less than 24 hours after wrapping up the 2012 draft, the Washington Nationals already had agreed to terms with their second- and fourth-round selections and were working toward locking up their third-round choice, among others, scouting director Kris Kline said.

When Drew Storen returns, would it make sense for Davey Johnson to ease him back in by adopting a two-closer strategy? It wouldn't, after all, be the first time he's done such a thing.
The idea of a baseball team — from April to October — being a central part of the sports conversation is entirely foreign to modern-day Washington.
