Has Stephen Strasburg (13-0, 2.51) done enough to quiet all the rubes who for years claimed he was all hype?
07/13/201624
Remember when Daniel Murphy's playoff power surge was a fluke? He's a legit top-shelf power threat and that makes him an MVP candidate.
07/06/201646
One of the biggest upsets in baseball is that through more than half of the schedule, the Nationals team leader in home runs is Danny Espinosa.
06/29/201663
The seven-game losing streak is safely in the rearview now and, after Wednesday's game against the Mets, the Nationals have four against the Reds and three against the Brewers at home.
06/22/201643
The Nationals have six players with at least 10 home runs, which is tops in the NL (the Mariners are the other team with six). Only 11 teams have as many as four players with at least 10 homers.

Dan Kolko of MASN Sports tells us that Max Scherzer has taken a no-hitter into the sixth inning in 15 percent of his starts with the Nationals. He's taken a perfect game into the sixth 11 percent of the time.

I've already had to put a few good teams in the doghouse for being swept by awful teams this year and the Nationals really tried hard to make that happen. Instead, the Reds pitching staff out-sucked them on Sunday and a drastic docking was avoided.
06/01/201645
Daniel Murphy tied the franchise record (yes, including the Expos) with 47 hits in the month of May. He's hitting .397 with 15 doubles and nine homers this year. Remember, the Nationals would have Brandon Phillips instead if he didn't veto the agreed-upon trade last offseason.
05/25/201657
Stephen Strasburg (8-0, 2.79) has hit double digits in strikeouts in five of his 10 starts this season. Somewhere, there are still people who insist he's overrated or all hype or some other nonsense.
05/18/201675
Are home runs going to be an issue for Max Scherzer? His 13 allowed are tied for the most in the majors (Chris Young, Royals), and it's easily the highest rate of allowed homers in Scherzer's career.
