Washington Nationals’ prospect James Bourque gets call; has amazing mustache...

Washington Nationals’ prospect James Bourque got called up to the majors on Saturday after a dominant run in the bullpen in the last year-plus. An invitation to Winterfest from the Washington Nationals is sometimes a good sign that the team wants its fans to get to know a young prospect they think might end up in the nation’s capital at some point in the near future. James Bourque, a 25-year-old, 2014 4th Round pick by the Nationals, was added to the 40-Man roster last winter as well, coming of a breakout 2018 campaign which saw the starter-turned reliever excel in a new role, putting...

Davey Martinez’s squad goes for a second consecutive win over the Marlins in this afternoon’s 4:05 PM matchup in the nation’s capital. Juan Soto started the series opener with the Miami Marlins with a seven-game hit streak going, over which the Washington Nationals’ 20-year-old slugger was 12 for 26 (.462 AVG) with five doubles, a triple, one home run, three walks, and four runs scored, and he had multi-hit games in four of the seven on the streak which took him from .228/.345/.415 to a .268/.374/.490 line after 40 games and 174 PAs in his sophomore season in the majors.

Despite the Nationals’ many problems, manager Dave Martinez still the most glaring

Even though the Washington Nationals have several issues contributing to their disastrous start, it’s pretty clear that Dave Martinez is still out of his depth as manager... There isn’t much debate at this point. The Washington Nationals are the most disappointing team in baseball so far in 2019, possessing a lowly 20-31 record as May comes to a close. Their record is better than just three teams, all of them seemingly in deep rebuilds while the Nationals are supposed to be competing. When you’re in the company of the Miami Marlins, Kansas City Royals and Baltimore Orioles, something...

Washington’s Nationals won. They did. Enjoy that for a second. Okay, they won, yes, with 12 runs on 14 hits, but they also, and here’s where reality sets in, they also gave up a total of 10 runs, on 15 hits, and they committed four errors, they went 5 for 15 with runners in scoring position and left seven runners on base. It took a couple comebacks, and some late-game heroics from Juan Soto. But they...
