Ben Berkon: Will the Washington Nationals Be the Next Baseball Dynasty?
Huffington Post Sports - almost 4 years
In 2012, the Washington Nationals advanced to the playoffs for the first time since 1981. Just to give you a sense of how long ago that was, Ronald Reagan was in the ninth month of his first term as president, 'Endless Love' by Diana Ross and Lionel Richie was blowing up the airwaves, and the Nationals were still the Montreal Expos. Yet, the team's 98 win season last year was no fluke. While the Nats made a big off-season acquisition by trading for Gio Gonzalez, one can really attribute their success to the big contributions by former first round picks Stephen Strasburg and Bryce Harper. Strasburg, who had required Tommy John surgery in late-August 2010, hurled a dominant 3.16 ERA, 1.15 WHIP, and 4.10 K/BB over 159.3 innings. His incredible 11.13 K/9 clip also bested any other starting pitcher in the major leagues. The 19-year-old Harper looked like a veteran All-Star in his rookie debut, posting a .270/.340/.477 line with 22 HR and 18 SB, while gloving a 1.4 dWAR. I ...

LAKELAND, Fla. -- Tim Hudson is ready to start on opening day for the Atlanta Braves. Hudson made his final start of spring training in a 6-5 win over the Detroit Tigers on Tuesday. Hudson allowed one earned run in four innings. It will be his third opening day start for Atlanta. The Braves open at home on Monday against the Philadelphia Phillies. The Braves' staff had a bit of a setback when Jonny Venters pulled himself from the game in the sixth inning with what was called a sprained left elbow. Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez said Venters, who pitched in 66 games last season as a set-up man, is considered day to day. Hudson ended the spring with a 3.90 ERA, but said he feels fine and is excited about the new-look Braves offense that features B.J. Upton and Justin Upton. Hudson is also looking forward to knowing that the speedy Upton brothers, along with Jason Heyward should be able to track down plenty of fly balls. "I feel fine and I have been pro ...

Thursday: “Is that what conventional thinking is?”
Roanoke.com - over 4 years
WELL, TO SAY THAT I’M HAPPY ABOUT THAT O’S-YANKEES RESULT last night would be a big, fat lie. But you know what? After an afternoon of blowouts, that was one helluva night of baseball. I really like the opening of Buck Showalter’s press conference last night. Q. How big is the knot in your stomach? BUCK SHOWALTER: I don’t have no knot in my stomach. Q. Why not? BUCK SHOWALTER: Why not? Is that what I’m supposed to do? Is that what conventional thinking is? Well, they may. We don’t live in that world. We’re so impressed with all our guys tonight, played a great game in a tough situation, and they’ll come out and compete tomorrow. BUCK’S RIGHT: CONVENTIONAL THINKING HAS NO PLACE IN THESE PLAYOFFS. Nobody pinch-hits for the highest-paid player in the game, but Joe Girardi did in the ninth, and Raul Ibanez rewarded him with a game-tying homer and the walk-off shot in the 12th, handing the Orioles their first loss in their past 17 extra-innings games. Game 4 is 7:30 p.m ...

Starters: With or without Stephen Strasburg, the Nationals have the best group of starters in the playoffs. Gio Gonzalez, a 21-game winner, is as good as any No. 1 starter, and there's talent behind him in Jordan Zimmermann, Ross Detwiler and Edwin Jackson. The Cardinals used Kyle Lohse on Friday, which hurts them, but they also have a deep rotation. They're giving Adam Wainwright a Game 1 start and putting the winless Chris Carpenter in the rotation over 18-game winner Lance Lynn. Edge: Nationals.

Nationals Top Cubs 9-2 In Fight-Filled Game
Huffington Post - over 4 years
WASHINGTON -- Nationals manager Davey Johnson figures the Chicago Cubs were ticked off because Jayson Werth swung at a 3-0 pitch in the fifth inning. Just to be clear, Johnson wasn't apologizing. Adam LaRoche added to his home run tear with a two-run shot and Washington beat the Cubs 9-2 in a fight-filled game Thursday night to finish a lopsided four-game sweep. "If they get mad at my guys in the fifth inning swinging 3-0 or running, they better get used to it," Johnson said. The trouble started with a testy exchange between Cubs bench coach Jamie Quirk and Nationals third base coach Bo Porter in the fifth. Quirk shouted from the dugout toward third base and Porter walked over to the railing, jawing and pointing his finger. The benches and bullpens emptied, but there was no pushing or shoving. Quirk was ejected before play resumed. "It was the bench coach's frustration in us handing it to him for a couple days," Johnson said. "If they want to quit comp ...
