  1. Nationals' delivery on promise a team thing

    Christina Kahrl

    Some ways of winning you find yourself liking better than you expected. Five and a half months ago, most of us anticipated the Nationals would win the NL East, so now that Washington is on the cusp of clinching, there isn't any drama. It's done. For ...

  2. Nationals starting to live up to expectations

    Christina Kahrl

    Do the Nationals have the NL East won? It's worth asking now, because with a six-game lead over the Braves after their latest victory over the Mets on Thursday night, we might end up with the Nats walking away. That would no doubt be especially sweet...

  3. Nationals' multiple mistakes prove costly

    Christina Kahrl

    The Marlins' comeback to walk off against the Nationals on Monday was one of those happy reminders that you really do have to play the games. With a Miami win expectation that FanGraphs pegged at one or two percent with the Nats up 6-0 after six inni...

  4. Rooting for Rendon, Crisp to be All-Stars

    Christina Kahrl

    With the All-Star rosters being named Sunday night, I'm sure we all have guys we'd like to see make it and our different reasons, as fans or as analysts, for wanting them to get in. It's easy to be excited for guys such as Andrew McCutchen or Josh Do...

  5. Nats have to roll with Bryce Harper's injury

    Christina Kahrl

    Another week, another bit of Bryce Harper drama. If anyone out there has Harper fatigue, I guess one way to look at it is that you won't have to hear much about him for a couple of weeks at the very least. But if that's your sentiment, shame on yo...

  6. Harper disciplined by yesteryear's phenom

    Christina Kahrl

    Bryce Harper's latest bit of drama hit the news: pulled from a close game Saturday and benched for lack of hustle running to first base. Nationals manager Matt Williams was pretty up-front about the reason why, stressing Harper's obligation to his te...

  7. Comeback trio are post-break HR leaders

    Christina Kahrl

    Who has the most home runs since the All-Star break? After Saturday night's action, three guys were tied with seven apiece: Jose Bautista of the Blue Jays, Jayson Werth of the Nationals and Justin Morneau of the Twins. In other words, neither of the ...

  8. NL's latest rookie crop shining bright

    Christina Kahrl

    When it comes to this year's rookies, as fans I think we sort of came into this season like the kid at Christmas the year after you got the bike and the pony, or the new car and the Red Ryder BB gun. Because, let's face it, the year after Mik...

  9. Forget-me-nots for the missing men of 2012

    Christina Kahrl

    Say you're a team that has a problem, like losing an everyday player to free agency. Market solutions tend to be expensive, whether in cash spent or prospects dealt. But some teams already have potential solutions for their seeming offseason needs on...

  10. Does picking top skippers make sense?

    Christina Kahrl

    It was the managers' turn Tuesday in Major League Baseball's awards week, and you can understand why this might be greeted by a collective yawn by the performance-analysis community. The throwaway comment is that it's the award for whichever guy in t...

  11. A voter's 2012 NL Rookie of the Year ballot

    Christina Kahrl

    As one of the few entrusted with a National League Rookie of the Year vote this year, there wasn't really that much drama to making a selection, at least not for me. After September, it was clear that Bryce Harper should win, and that's who I put ato...

  12. Winter's discontent -- why not go for it?

    Christina Kahrl

    OK, we know: This year's free-agent market is not like last year's. It isn't like the market will yield many or any easy choices for who to throw a six- or 10-year contract at. You can probably set this winter's over-under on nine-figure free-agent d...

  13. Johnny Cueto was jobbed

    Christina Kahrl

    Last night, MLB announced the finalists for the major awards. This generated a predictable amount of snark on Twitter (then again, what doesn't?). But beyond filling time during a slow news week, the exercise did two things: It not only told us who m...

  14. Bryce Harper, Nats winning slugly

    Christina Kahrl

    "That really pops" is usually a phrase you're more likely to see on Bravo than ESPN. But these days, it's what you can say about the Nationals' lineup, because for a second consecutive night, it put up another power display that might have made you w...

  15. Comparisons to '86 Mets run deep for Nats

    Christina Kahrl

    The echoes of 1986 aren't new to this year's Nationals team. Budding superstar starter? Dwight Gooden with that year's Mets and Stephen Strasburg now, that's one. All-world outfielder Darryl Strawberry then, Bryce Harper now? Yep, that's another. Dav...

  16. Bryce Harper an All-Star? Absolutely!

    Christina Kahrl

    What's the news? That Bryce Harper is an All-Star after all. Sure, he may have taken the back entrance to make it into the All-Star Game. He's been tabbed only because an equally exciting young player, Giancarlo Stanton, had to beg off the honor. But...
