Only at The Washington Times: Mark Zuckerman and Ben Goessling blog on the Washington Nationals.
As the Washington Times drops its sports section after tomorrow, I'd like to thank everybody who made this newspaper such an invigorating place to cover sports.
This is the blog post I hoped never to have to write.
Washington adds a middle infielder and a first baseman on minor league deals.
The signing of closer Matt Capps early this morning completes a dramatic makeover of the Nats' bullpen.
The Cubs don't expect to get the free agent closer, so that leaves Washington as his likely landing spot. A deal could be wrapped up tonight.
The Nats' newest pitcher is a workhorse from Staten Island who does a lot of little things well but rarely blows you away. He can't wait, though, to instill his wisdom on the rest of Washington's pitching staff.
With the Nationals' signing of right-hander Jason Marquis to what's believed to be a two-year contract worth $15 million, the team has the veteran starter they've been after all winter. It's not a guarantee the Nationals are done shopping for pitching before spring training, but if it is, here's how the rotation might look on Opening Day:
The Nationals announced their single-game ticket prices for 2010 today, cutting prices on 3,000 seats while holding all others steady, expanding the number of value dates and introducing lower-cost parking options around Nationals Park.
The Nationals announced Tuesday afternoon they have signed six players to minor-league contracts: right-handed pitchers Joel Peralta, Logan Kensing and Ryan Speier, catcher Jamie Burke, infielder Pete Orr and outfielder Jerry Owens.
MLB commissioner has assembled 14 current or former managers, GMs and executives to tackle a variety of issues affecting the sport.
One day after getting non-tendered, left-hander Scott Olsen re-signs a one-year, incentive-laden contract with Washington.
GM Mike Rizzo elected not to tender contracts to Scott Olsen or Mike MacDougal, but Wil Nieves will return in 2010.
The Nats aren't expected to tender Scott Olsen or Wil Nieves a contract before tonight's midnight deadline, but there's a good chance both players could be re-signed to lesser deals.
The Nats' newest addition insists he's capable of being the starting catcher over the full season. GM Mike Rizzo's not sure, but he's happy to hear Pudge say it.
The Nats will formally introduce their newest catcher (a future Hall of Famer) at Nationals Park.
