Stephen Strasburg Hits 95 In Simulated Game

Tuesday, July 19th, 2011

When Washington Nationals ace Stephen Strasburg went down last year and underwent Tommy John Surgery, most expected he'd be out for at least a year, and maybe up to 18 months. Fast forward to this month and less than a year later (he had surgery on Sept 3, 2010) the ...

Prince Fielder To The Washington Nationals?

Monday, June 20th, 2011

One of the most underrated elements of free agency in baseball is the involvement of a player's agent. Obviously agents negotiate the deals, but they also use their influence to steer players towards certain teams. If an agent has a solid prior relationship with a team, the likelihood that he ...

A Cautionary Tale

Tuesday, June 8th, 2010

It would seem that Nats fans are pretty jacked up for Tuesday's major league debut of Stephen Strasburg. The team, which generally can't draw gnats, is expecting to sell standing room only seats for the game against the Pirates. Certainly, the excitement is warranted. Strasburg zoomed through the minors, going 7-2 ...
