Washington Nationals: Billy Hamilton a trade target?

If the Cincinnati Reds choose to move him, there is a plausible deal with the Washington Nationals for Billy Hamilton. His speed, mixed with Trea Turner, is a game changer. The Washington Nationals could take advantage of their speed game next season by looking at Billy Hamilton. The Cincinnati Reds centerfielder will hit free agency […] Washington Nationals: Billy Hamilton a trade target? - District on Deck - District on Deck - A Washington Nationals Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Washington Nationals’ Michael A. Taylor and Trea Turner talk NLDS Game 5 vs Chicago Cubs

Washington Nationals’ Michael A. Taylor and Trea Turner talk NLDS Game 5 vs Chicago Cubs

Trea Turner, Michael A. Taylor, and Cubs’ skipper Joe Maddon talked about going into Game 5 tonight with the season on the line for both teams in Nationals Park. While the Washington Nationals, as a franchise, have failed to advance past the NLDS in any of their previous three Postseason appearances, they don’t all carry that history as their own as much as fans of the franchise might. I don't believe in that because it's a different team every year. You play different teams, different players, trades, free agents, whatever it may be. We didn't play the Cubs last year.” - Trea Turner...

Wire Taps: Why Stephen Strasburg won’t start; Dusty Baker’s future shouldn’t depend on playoffs; Tanner Roark + Jake Arrieta are similar

Catch up on the last 24 hours in Nationals news before the start of Game 4 of the NLDS with the Cubs... Every stat, every number would suggest that today will be the final day of the Nationals’ season. There’s no logical reason to think that the Nats can break out of this slump, that Tanner Roark can turn into Max Scherzer, that Trea Turner will finally get on base. The Nats have 27 outs to work with. Let’s see what they can do anyways, just for the hell of it: For what looks like it’ll be the last time this season (and today, we mean it, because there’s no rain in the forecast):...

Crazy guesses as to what the Washington Nationals’ problem is in the NLDS, and how to fix it...

Nobody knows what the issue is. Nobody. Here are a few guesses, though: What can the Nats do differently to win today... and on Thursday? Well, it’s a little unclear right now, but here’s what we have: Score. Score again. Put the bat on the baseball so that: “the batter reaches first base before any fielder can either tag him with the ball, throw to another player protecting the base before the batter reaches it, or tag first base while carrying the ball.” Start Wilmer Difo in place of Trea Turner, let him get a leadoff hit, then pinch run Trea at first so that he thinks he was...

Should the Washington Nationals lineup change for NLDS Game 3?

Should the Washington Nationals lineup change for NLDS Game 3?

The Nationals need better production from the leadoff spot and left field. Would it make sense to sub out Trea Turner and Jayson Werth for Wilmer Difo and Howie Kendrick? I am still excited about Saturday night’s win. Big moments from Bryce Harper and Ryan Zimmerman are almost enough to make me forget about how Trea Turner, Bryce, and Jayson Werth are a combined 2-for-23 with one walk. Now that the Cubs have de facto home field advantage, the batting order could probably use some tweaking. In a lineup which totaled four hits before last night’s eighth inning, who stays and who goes...

Catch up on the last 24 hours in Nationals news before the start of Game 3 of the NLDS with the Cubs in the friendly confines of Wrigley Field. Alright. Today, the Nats start a best-of-three where they’ll start Max Scherzer, Tanner Roark, and Stephen Strasburg. Strap in folks. This should be fun heart-wrenching. Here’s what’s new in Wrigleyville.

Trea Turner is 0 for 8 with four Ks through two games against the Cubs in the NLDS, and the Nationals need their leadoff man to get on base... Chicago Cubs’ skipper Joe Maddon talked before the start of the NLDS matchup with the Washington Nationals about how his team would handle leadoff man and stolen base threat Trea Turner, who swiped seven bags in the four games he played against the defending World Series Champions this season. “He’s a huge catalyst for us. We go as he goes. When he’s on base consistently we’re scoring a lot of runs...” - Mike Rizzo on Trea Turner on 106.7...

Turner, Nats must pressure Lester on basepaths

A storyline with Cubs lefty Jon Lester is his trouble at holding runners on first base, yet it never seems that teams are aggressive enough in challenging him. Can the Nationals' Trea Turner and Victor Robles turn that around in the NLDS?

Nats' speedy Turner a challenge for Cubs

The Cubs know what kind of impact Trea Turner can have on a game, recalling June, when he swiped four bases against Jake Arrieta. The Cubs' goal in the National League Division Series Presented by T-Mobile will be to keep the Nationals' leadoff man off the bases.

NLDS 2017: How will Chicago Cubs handle Washington Nationals’ base stealer Trea Turner?

Trea Turner stole seven bases in four games against the Cubs earlier this season, then took a hit-by-pitch on the wrist... total coincidence. Trea Turner ran wild on the Chicago Cubs during the series with the defending World Series champs in Nationals Park in late June. Turner went 6 for 14 with four walks and seven stolen bases in the four-game series, with four of the seven steals in the second game. Turner’s four in that game combined with two by Michael A. Taylor and one by Anthony Rendon to push now-former Cubs’ catcher Miguel Montero over the edge. “You have that especially...

All the Nationals links that were fit to link, all in one place for you convenience... Okay, the Nats are scuffling. But, because yesterday was all gloom and doom, here are some happier points: First, the 2012 and 2016 Nats, who both could’ve made it out of the first round quite easily, went 4-3 in the last seven games of the regular season — i.e., the week we’re in right now. Plus, Bryce Harper can run and kind of hit. And Trea Turner was on base all night. And Jayson Werth made hard contact! Okay. With that in mind, here’s what’s new in Washington.

Washington Nationals 3-2 over New York Mets to take 2 of 3 in Citi Field: Max Scherzer strikes out 10 in six innings...

Max Scherzer struck out 10 in six innings, and the Nationals took the series finale and 2 of 3 from the Mets in Citi Field with a 3-2 win. Max Scherzer gave up a run in the bottom of the first, on a no-doubter of a home run by Brandon Nimmo, then held the New York Mets off the board through six innings as Washington rallied to take a 3-1 lead. Scherzer left the game after completing his six innings of work on the mound, and the Nationals’ bullpen gave up a run, but preserved the lead, in what ended up a 3-2 win. Trea Turner took Jacob deGrom deep in the third inning for a two-run home...
