Wire Taps: Will Washington Nationals change managers, coaching staff? No love for Matt Wieters + more...

Catch up on the last 24 hours in Nationals news while we wait for some real news at some point this winter... and prepare for a year of Bryce Harper chatter... It’s that time of year, where things are over for all but four teams and news has slowed to a crawl, but that doesn’t mean we won’t keep searching the internets every day and sharing what we’ve found. Had enough of the “Will Dusty Baker return?” talk yet? How about the “Will this be Bryce Harper’s last season in D.C.?” chatter? If you thought the Stephen Strasburg shutdown story in 2012 was interminable back then,...

Is Matt Wieters back with Washington next season?

Here's what to know about changes in the Washington Nationals starting infield next season: There will likely be none. Bouncing around the diamond is a rather simple equation. At first base, Ryan Zimmerman had the best season of his career. Daniel Murphy is entering the final season of his contract ...

Wire Taps: Will Dusty Baker return to Washington Nationals? No closer drama this winter; Nats’ catcher chatter...

There are plenty of questions for the Nationals to answer this winter, though maybe fewer big ones than in previous winters... Will Dusty Baker be back in Washington, D.C. in 2018? What once seemed like a sure thing is... less than sure now? Did Matt Wieters’ work behind the plate this season in the nation’s capital impress you? How about his work at the plate? If Wieters comes back, should he share duties with the Nationals’ catcher of the future (whether it’s Pedro Severino or someone else)? There are plenty of questions for the Nats to answer this winter, but luckily for all us,...

OPINION: Latest postseason defeat paints uncertain future for Bryce Harper

OPINION: Latest postseason defeat paints uncertain future for Bryce Harper

The Washington Nationals failed once again to advance past the NLDS, raising further questions about where Bryce Harper will sign once he hits free agency. Following the team’s latest disappointing playoff run, the Washington Nationals have several questions to address before next season. Who replaces Jayson Werth in the outfield? Did Dusty Baker earn a new contract? Who will be the No. 5 starter while Joe Ross works his way back from Tommy John surgery? Should the front office go after another catcher with Matt Wieters having a down year and Jose Lobaton set to hit free agency? While...

Jose Lobaton was out and it feels awful

Jose Lobaton was out and it feels awful

Replay is an improvement in the game until it sucks. There was controversy to burn in last night’s NLDS Game 5. Strange and terrible things devoured Max Scherzer and his catcher Matt Wieters in the fifth inning. Yet the Nationals battled back. And then of course, everything went haywire in final and convincing fashion, to the irritation of many in the baseball world. In the bottom of the eighth inning, with a run already in for the Nationals and the score now tight at 9-8, Jose Lobaton kept the inning alive with a single. With the speedy Michael Taylor at second base, and Trea Turner at...

Watch Michael A. Taylor’s clutch grand slam in Washington Nationals’ 5-0 win in Game 4

Folks, we’re a glass case of emotions. It was the top of the eighth, and Stephen Strasburg had given the Washington Nationals seven stellar innings — and for once, the Nats were up, but only by one run. In other words, not nearly enough for any game, and especially any game in October, against the defending World Champion Chicago Cubs. Daniel Murphy, with two outs, lined a base hit up the middle — and walks to Anthony Rendon and Matt Wieters loaded the bases for Michael A. Taylor. At that point, Carl Edwards Jr. was still on the hill for Chicago, having loaded the bases up after Jon...

Washington Nationals: Expect teams to run on Matt Wieters in postseason

One of the problems that can hurt the Washington Nationals in October is that teams will be trying to steal bases on Matt Wieters When Trea Turner is healthy and the offense is clicking, one of the things the Washington Nationals offense is known for is trying to steal bases. But, once the postseason comes […] Washington Nationals: Expect teams to run on Matt Wieters in postseason - District on Deck - District on Deck - A Washington Nationals Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More
