Since then, the conversation about the Nationals’ best-in-baseball rotation began with the kid who, for three straight years, was their opening day starter — not so much for what he had done but for...

Nationals win, but without Strasburg

For an hour Saturday at Nationals Park, things felt perfect for the Washington Nationals. They pounced on sleepy San Francisco Giants starter Madison Bumgarner, one of the most fearsome starters in baseball. Five pitches into the game, both Michael A. Taylor and Bryce Harper had smashed home runs, Harper using a stars-and-stripes-decorated bat to commemorate the Fourth of July.

After a long conversation, which appeared to be dominated by Williams, Strasburg left the game.Read full article >>

Stephen Strasburg threw seven strong innings Sunday afternoon, allowing two runs on four hits with nine strikeouts and just one walk. But the most optimistic sign that Strasburg may be able to reclaim the magic from earlier in his career is the reappearance of his change-up, which had been thrown with less frequency before he went on the disabled list.Read full article >>
