WASHINGTON (AP) — Jim Riggleman felt he deserved better. He had essentially become a permanent interim manager for the Washington Nationals, a franchise that has spent much of its time trying to become relevant. Once the club was ready to be a contender, he sensed he would be shunted aside for the next best thing to come along.
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The Twins have acquired All-Star closer Matt Capps from the Washington Nationals for minor leaguers Wilson Ramos and Joe Testa.
The Twins say they will also receive cash from the Nationals.
Capps got his 26th save in 30 opportunities earlier Thursday in the Nationals’win over the Atlanta Braves. He will help bolster a bullpen that was missing its closer, Joe Nathan, since the beginning of the season.
The anticipation is nearly over. The 21-year-old with the fastball that approaches 100 mph and the curve that freezes batters is about to take the mound in the nation’s capital.
Stephen Strasburg is set to make his Washington Nationals debut Tuesday night.
According to various reports, Fargoan Chris Coste is heading to the nation’s capitol.
The 37-year-old Coste, hoping to play major league baseball for a fifth straight season, was picked up on waivers Monday by the Washington Nationals.
Stephen Strasburg was sent to the minor leagues on Saturday by the Washington Nationals, who told baseball’s top pitching prospect he needed to slow down his delivery from the stretch in order to speed up his arrival in the majors.
Pitcher Chien-Ming Wang and the Washington Nationals have reached an agreement on a $2 million, one-year contract, a person familiar with the negotiations told The Associated Press.
The deal includes the chance to earn $3 million in performance bonuses, the person said Tuesday, speaking on condition of anonymity because the agreement was not yet final.
Jamestown College women’s wrestling coach Cisco Cole did not know what to expect from his team at the NAIA National meet on Saturday.
After leaving Marshall, Mo., with 8 All-Americans and a fifth-place team finish, Cole could not have been happier.
WASHINGTON (AP) — Long-standing Washington Nationals “face of the franchise” Ryan Zimmerman was in the home clubhouse before Tuesday’s game, fielding question after question about newly signed No. 1 draft pick Stephen Strasburg.
So much for the plan to have Manny Acta’s patient optimism lead the Washington Nationals out of the doldrums. The abysmal won-loss record became too much to stomach, costing him his job at the All-Star break and adding another layer of instability to the worst team in baseball.
Adam Dunn, all 6-foot-6 and 275 pounds of him, stepped to the podium, took one look at the microphone he was supposed to use Thursday for his first official statement as a member of the Washington Nationals and scoffed.
“This is for midgets,” Dunn said, then yanked the sound equipment higher to his liking.
