Latest Danny Espinosa Items
Maybe the key decision for the Nats will be whether to sign starting pitcher Jordan Zimmermann to a long-term contract extension. Shortstop Ian Desmond is in line for one, as well. Both players will be free agents after the 2015 season.
Right-hander Tim Hudson has signed a two-year deal with the San Francisco Giants, taking him out of the National League East which is great news for the Nationals.
Pick through the debris from the Nationals' busted season and few scraps elicit more head-scratching than Monday's acquisition of David DeJesus.
Early in Wednesday's broadcast of the Nationals' latest loss to the Braves, color man F.P. Santangelo made a point. It wasn't about the division or the playoffs anymore. It was about showing a little heart, about not letting a team come in and sweep you at home.
The swelling in Bryce Harper's left knee isn't getting any better, so the Washington outfielder will see a specialist next week and won't be coming off the disabled list when he is eligible.
