Latest John Lannan Items
In a need of a lift in the rotation, the Phillies are taking a chance on Carlos Zambrano.
Lannan holds no grudges against the Nationals and insists baseball decisions can't be taken personally. Time has made those words easier.
All night the Washington Nationals couldn't get anything going. They scored no runs and finished with just five hits and a loss.
If there was one image the Washington Nationals may remember from a game they would surely love to forget, it was of Carlos Beltran. Standing on the top step of the St. Louis Cardinals' dugout after his second two-run homer of the game, Beltran reveled in a curtain call while Chien-Ming Wang stood emotionless on the mound.
In an imperative 8-4 win that dropped the Washington Nationals’ magic number to clinch the National League East crown to four, it was John Lannan silencing his demons, staring his past nightmares right in the eye and forcing the Philadelphia Phillies to be the ones to blink.
The first game of a three-game series between the Washington Nationals and Los Angeles Dodgers was postponed Tuesday due to inclement weather in the D.C. area. The game will be made up as part of a traditional doubleheader on Wednesday with the first game beginning at 4:05 p.m. and the second starting approximately 30 minutes after the conclusion of the first.
The Washington Nationals' 2-0 victory over the New York Mets basically was like any other game for all but two of Washington's players — Stephen Strasburg, the phenom whose season was shut down last week, and John Lannan, the one-time rotation stalwart now filling the gap.
The Washington Nationals began life without Stephen Strasburg on Wednesday. They did it without note and without fanfare. John Lannan took the mound, the Nationals won. The beat goes on.
There is nothing about what John Lannan has done this season that seems normal to him. He looks around at the starting pitchers the Washington Nationals have used for the majority of this season, the power arms that pound hitters day after day, and knows he does not fit the mold.
