Latest Davey Johnson Items
With tired eyes, Davey Johnson tried to take the blame.
As a 5.9-magnitude earthquake shook the Virginia, Maryland, D.C. area — and much of the rest of the East Coast on Tuesday afternoon, Washington Nationals principal owner Mark Lerner watched as the center field scoreboard in his team's park swayed back and forth.
Jordan Zimmermann doesn't carry the same cachè, didn't sign the same type of monster contract and certainly doesn't pack a stadium the way the Washington Nationals' best-known right-handed pitcher does. He's not Stephen Strasburg, and that's just fine.
Ross Detwiler got everyone talking five days ago. In a dominant six-inning performance as a tough-luck loser, Detwiler showed more than just a glimpse of the first-round talent the Nationals saw when they selected him four years ago.
Washington Nationals pitcher Tom Gorzelanny wants to be a starter, not a reliever. He makes no secret of that.
These Nationals aren't going to win the National League East or being playing in October. September could be a showcase for Stephen Strasburg on the comeback trail from Tommy John surgery.
As the crowd at Nationals Park roared deep into the night — the loudest and longest cheers reserved for the opposition — the numbers blazed out at them from the center-field scoreboard.
Five hours and 19 minutes after Livan Hernandez stood on the mound at Nationals Park for the first time Friday night, Jayson Werth stood 60 feet, 6 inches away from it representing the start of the Nationals' final stand. Philadelphia Phillies closer Ryan Madson had been summoned. A two-run lead was his protect and the Phillies' 81st victory was seemingly moments away.
The Washington Nationals placed Bryce Harper on the seven-day minor league disabled list Friday evening, after the diagnosis of strained right hamstring initially given to him Thursday night was confirmed by a doctor in Harrisburg. Harper was injured running the bases in the eighth inning of Thursday's game for Class AA Harrisburg, and had to be helped off the field.
