Washington Nationals: Looking forward the second half

The second half of the Major League Baseball has already began in more ways than one. The 81 game mark was passed a couple of weeks ago, and each team has played one series since finishing the all-star break. However, the future for the Washington Nationals and every other MLB team hangs in the balance as division races are tight and the trade deadline is upcoming. Washington currently...

WATCH: Anthony Rendon makes a sliding play for the out

It seems like Anthony Rendon is always making an incredible play to make an out. Well he was at it again today against the Milwaukee Brewers. During the top of the first inning, Gio Gonzalez threw a 3-2 fastball to Aramis Ramirez. It looked like Ramirez had a solid hit up the middle, but Anthony Rendon made a sliding play to reach the ball and get the out. Watch it here: Your browser...

Comeback Falls Short as Nats Split Series in Baltimore

The Nats fell into a 4-0 hole early, but Gio Gonzalez rebounded to hold the Baltimore Orioles (50-41) down for the rest of his start, and the Washington Nationals (49-41) stranded nine as they missed opportunities and could not complete the comeback, falling 4-3. Gonzalez’s (L, 6-5) scoreless innings streak came to an end very early in the game, but he battled through some early...

Nationals Injury Update: Gio Gonzalez goes five innings in return from DL

Gio Gonzalez returned from a month on the DL to throw five shaky innings in the Nationals 6-5 victory over the Houston Astros, reports Mark Zuckerman of Nats Insider.

Gio Gonzalez says shoulder feels “really good” after rough rehab start

Pitching for Class A Potomac on Friday night in his first rehab start as he nears a return from left shoulder inflammation, Gio Gonzalez allowed eight runs on seven hits — including a grand slam — while walking four and hitting a batter against the Wilmington Blue Rocks.

So Gio Gonzalez got knocked around tonight for the P-Nats

Without seeing it with our own eyes, it sure sounds like Gio Gonzalez had a rough rehab start tonight in Woodbridge for the Potomac Nationals. But really all that matters is how his shoulder feels tomorrow, right? Gio done after 65 pitches (34 strikes) over 3.2 innings. Gives up 8 runs on 7 H, 4 BB & 1 HBP. Still got a standing ovation as he walked off — James Wagner...

WATCH: Gio Gonzalez flips on teammate, has to be restrained

Up above, video of Gio Gonzalez flipping out in the dugout after giving up seven runs in the first two innings of Sunday's start in Oakland (final line: 4.1 IP, 9 H, 7 R, 3 BB, 4 K, 2 HR). Ugly. Gio had to be restrained several times by coaches and appeared to be jawing at a specific teammate (Rendon?) or teammates. Or...Ian Desmond? Via, Jose Lobaton said it was...

Nationals' Gio Gonzalez helps high schooler ask girl to prom

Georgetown Prep high school senior Nick Rolle’s list of potential prom dates consisted of one name — his girlfriend Lauren Thomas. But apparently having a girlfriend doesn’t mean you can slack on extending an invite to the big dance, because Rolle went all out. Rolle is fortunately enough to have a connection to the Washington Nationals. […]

Video: Gio Gonzalez's home run sprint

As if Gio Gonzalez hitting his third career home run Wednesday night against the Mets wasn't fantastic enough, his home run trot was maybe even more fantastical. A full-on sprint around the bases with a sh*t-eating grin on his face? Fantastic. Apparently his teammates were impressed, too: One of Gio Gonzalez's teammates in the dugout after his home run sprint: "...
