DC Sports Bog: Ranking the Nationals’ seasons from most to least fun

Back on May 30, with the Nationals looking up at the Braves in the National League East standings, Ian Desmond celebrated a home run with unusual gusto in the dugout. “We’re not having enough fun,” Desmond said after the game, a 9-2 win over Texas. “People have been making that known to us. Every time you hit one from now on, it’s a party in there.” Read full article >>

Jenrry Mejia celebration over the top?

NEW YORK -- Jenrry Mejia allowed the tying run to reach scoring position, but the closer eventually nailed down a 4-3 win against the Washington Nationals on Friday with a game-ending strikeout of Ian Desmond. Mejia then debuted his latest postgame celebration -- this time an over-the-top routine that involved pointing in Desmond’s direction and reeling him in like a fisherman. Bryce Harper in the on-deck circle was among the Nats who appeared none too pleased.

Ian Desmond could have played Wednesday against the Braves but Manager Matt Williams held him out so the shortstop could further rest his tight lower back.

The Nationals’ balanced home run attack

The Nationals’ aren’t the best home-run-hitting team in the majors. Far from it. They didn’t even rank among MLB’s top-10 home run clubs entering play Monday. And the Nationals don’t boast one of the most-prodigious home-run hitters in baseball. Ian Desmond currently leads the way with 22 homers, and it’s unlikely anybody on the roster…
