Washington Nationals’ GM Mike Rizzo still talking about drafting Anthony Rendon at No. 6 overall in 2011...

Anthony Rendon had injury concerns which led to him still being available when the Washington Nationals picked sixth overall in the 2011 MLB Draft... Washington Nationals’ GM Mike Rizzo didn’t expect Anthony Rendon to be around when the sixth pick of the 2011 Draft came up, but injury concerns led to the Rice University third baseman, considered the best hitter in the draft that summer, still being available when the Nats’ top pick of that year’s draft arrived. It was not a hard decision to go with the then-21-year-old infielder. “He was projected to be the No. 1 pick, the best...

Catch up on the last 24 hours in Nationals news before the finale with the Fish in D.C. this afternoon... It seemed impossible. Unlikely. Unfathomable. But these Nats are winners of three in a row, folks. That means they’re a mere, uh, NINE, games under .500, so they only need to knock off nine more in a row to get back to respectability. Nice. Here’s the news from Nats Park: Nats finally get first three-game win streak of year (MASN)Today, in competition for lede of the season: "It took two months of agonizing starts and stops, encouraging moments followed by devastating meltdowns,...

Washington Nationals’ Juan Soto & Anthony Rendon trying to turn things around in D.C.

Washington Nationals’ Juan Soto & Anthony Rendon trying to turn things around in D.C.

Washington Nationals’ third baseman Anthony Rendon and Nats’ left fielder Juan Soto are doing what they can to try to turn things around in the nation’s capital. Anthony Rendon missed a total of 14 games on the Injured List with a contusion on his left elbow and was slow to heat back up at the plate, but he started to get back in the swing of things shortly after he returned and in 18 games back in Washington’s lineup before playing the third of four with Miami in D.C. on Sunday, he was 19 for 66 (.288/.390/.591) with eight doubles, four homers, nine walks, and 11 Ks in 77 plate...

Washington Nationals win three straight for first time in 2019 with 9-6 win over Miami Marlins

Erick Fedde put together a solid, five-inning outing. Washington’s offense put up nine runs on 15 hits. That’s three straight wins for the Nationals for the first time in 2019. For the first time this season, the Washington Nationals, who beat the Miami Marlins 9-6 this afternoon in the nation’s capital, have won three straight. Huzzah! That’s right, it took until late May, but the 2019 Nationals have finally put together what can legitimately be called a winning streak. Erick Fedde tossed five scoreless in his second start of the season. Adam Eaton, Anthony Rendon, Howie Kendrick,...

Wire Taps: Could the Nationals trade Max Scherzer + Anthony Rendon?; President Obama visits Nats Academy; Davey Martinez ejected, on hot seat...

Catch up on the last 24 hours in Nationals news before the start of this weekend’s four-game set with the Marlins... The Nationals are in a tough predicament. They could sell everything and everyone off, citing poor fundamentals, bad hitting, and an unsalvageable bullpen, thus rebooting the farm system, with the hope of coming back stronger by, say, 2021. Or they could invest in the bullpen—though it’s unclear who they would invest in—and hope for the best. Neither seems particularly appealing. Anyhow, here’s the news from Nationals Park: Nationals on the brink after embarrassing...

Have the Washington Nationals “missed the boat” on an Anthony Rendon extension?

Have the Washington Nationals “missed the boat” on an Anthony Rendon extension?

Will Anthony Rendon be the next D.C. star to sign elsewhere after testing the free agent market, or will the Nationals find a way to keep their 2011 1st Round pick. 106.7 the FAN in D.C.’s Grant Paulsen talked to someone who talked to Scott Boras recently who said that the Washington Nationals may have missed their opportunity to get a long-term deal done with Anthony Rendon before he becomes a free agent next winter, though the 28-year-old infielder has stated publicly that he’s willing to negotiate in-season as long as it doesn’t become a distraction. But with free agency now just...

Washington Nationals’ lineup vs New York Mets + Anthony Rendon streaking... but like who cares about hit streaks, amirite?

Anthony Rendon and the Nationals try to even things up in the second game of four in Citi Field after dropping the series opener last night... Anthony Rendon put together a 17-game hit streak between March 30th and April 19th, going 26 for 65 (.400/.474/.831) with 10 doubles and six home runs over that stretch. When it ended after a hit-by-pitch knocked him out of the Nationals’ April 20th game in Miami, Rendon, the acerbic wit that he is, dismissed its significance. “Seventeen games, is that a lot?” he asked rhetorically, as quoted by MLB.com’s Jamal Collier. “Who cares?...

Chicago Cubs 6-5 over Washington Nationals on ESPN Sunday Night Baseball to take 2 of 3 in D.C.

Davey Martinez’s squad fought back from an early deficit, but couldn’t complete the comeback... The boys kept fighting. Washington’s Nationals fell behind 4-0 in the series finale with the Chicago Cubs, and went down 6-1 after they got on the board, but a three-run homer by Anthony Rendon in the sixth made it 6-4, and Howie Kendrick added a solo homer in the seventh, 6-5. That was as close as they got, however, as the Cubs held on for the one-run win and took two of three in D.C.

On The Horizon: Cubs vs. Nationals series preview

The last time the Cubs were in D.C., it rained. A lot. The Nationals signed Patrick Corbin and Brian Dozier as free agents and hoped to move on and continue to contend without Bryce Harper. That hasn’t happened. Here’s Patrick Reddington of our SB Nation Nats site Federal Baseball to explain some of the reasons why. It’s been a frustrating start to the 2019 campaign for Nationals fans and players alike. They’ve had a number of injuries strike early and have been forced to go without the likes of Trea Turner (broken finger), Anthony Rendon (bruised elbow), Juan Soto (back spasms),...

Yankees mailbag: Anthony Rendon trade scenario, Luke Voit’s slump, and Joseph Harvey’s future

The answers to your mailbag questions are in! The Miguel Andujar surgery decision took priority on the site this week, so we will have an abbreviated mailbag today. I’m giving three questions a try. If I didn’t get to yours, don’t feel discouraged. Another editor could get to it later this weekend! JordanB28 asks: Any chance the Yankees make a run at Anthony Rendon should he hit the market? The Yankees seem to have a ready-made replacement for Andujar in Gio Urshela. There are even signs that changes he made at the plate are sustainable, as explained by Mike Petriello. Now should...
