Ryan Zimmerman's comeback story is an enjoyable one

Ryan Zimmerman is having a comeback season, and we're all enjoying it. Fans may lust after Bryce Harper, but the guy everyone fell in love shortly after baseball returned to Washington in 2005 was Zimmerman – a home-grown All-Star who represented the franchise with class on and off the field. ...

Svrluga: Bryce Harper and Mike Trout — Two different approaches, both great for baseball

How to make Mike Trout look unsettled on a baseball field: Try a fastball on the hands followed by a slider away. He might miss his pitch. He might drill a double to the gap. He might ground out. He might steal a bag. He'll always carry himself the same way.

Washington Nationals: Don’t expect a trade for Curtis Granderson

While Curtis Granderson would give the Washington Nationals more outfield depth, don’t expect the Mets to trade him to D.C. The Washington Nationals got some good news on Sunday when they found out that Bryce Harper should be back before the postseason. Despite the Harper news and Michael Taylor being back in the outfield, another […] Washington Nationals: Don’t expect a trade for Curtis Granderson - District on Deck - District on Deck - A Washington Nationals Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Is MLB doing enough to keep its players safe during inclement weather?

Washington Nationals superstar Bryce Harper suffered a painful injury when he slipped on first base after a rain delay. Miraculously, Harper was only diagnosed with a bone bruise and is expected to return before the end of the season. The situation could have been avoided if MLB had more rules taking care of the bases in between innings. However, the league already does a lot with tarps and other machines to get the field in playing condition during inclement weather.

Dusty Baker wants the injured Washington Nationals back: “I believe in the cavalry.”

“I think in this scenario we all got to think positive that these guys will be back, like I said, like the cavalry, right on time.” - Dusty Baker on getting injured Nationals back. Hours after the Washington Nationals learned that Bryce Harper’s injured left knee was not as bad as originally feared and after the Nats reinstated Michael A. Taylor from the DL, it happened again. Brian Goodwin reached base on an infield single Sunday afternoon, stole second, but tweaked something on the way to second base, and after he scored on a home run by Anthony Rendon, he was replaced in the...

On the Bryce Harper injury: Why was that game even being played?

MLB has to be willing to cancel games under certain circumstances. This was one of them. As you no doubt know, Bryce Harper of the Nationals was injured in the first inning of Saturday’s game against the Giants. If you haven’t seen it yet, here’s the video. (WARNING! It’s pretty gruesome.) Scary moment in D.C.

The 5 stages of coping with Bryce Harper’s injury

The 5 stages of coping with Bryce Harper’s injury

How Bryce Harper’s knee injury sent me from denial to acceptance in sixteen hours. I don’t know much about the five stages of grief, but since I watched Bryce Harper slip then stumble then take flight over first base last night, I have completed the cycle. It was not easy to watch the first time, nor the seemingly seventeen times MASN replayed it, nor an hour ago when Fox Sports Midwest decided it’d be a nice thing to have on the Cardinals broadcast. Fortunately, it is just a bone bruise as opposed to something more along the lines of a torn ligament a la Adam Eaton or a broken...
