Latest Danny Espinosa Items
Late at night at Nationals Park, as they digest another game in what is still a season in its infancy, Danny Espinosa and Randy Knorr sit in the steam room and talk.

The Phillies have been six games or more ahead of the division's second-place team since mid-August. All the Nationals have known is that they're too far out of things to make the wins and losses significant in a playoff race.
Over the course of Ross Detwiler’s 27 previous major league starts, he’s shown promise and possibility in a left arm dripping with potential.
