Nationals News: Stephen Strasburg Levels Up (?)

  Stephen Strasburg faced many obstacles in what was likely his last start at AA Harrisburg, but was able to learn a lot from them. His first start at AAA could come this week.

  Nationals Baseball points out the (many) holes in the Nats' offense.

  The Nats struck out 35 times in three games against the Marlins, getting blown out twice (and blowing out the Marlins once).

  The Nationals lost on two consecutive days for the first time this season, and they're upset about it. Tuesday's game against the Braves will tell us a lot about their character.

  Brian Bruney and the terrible, horrible, no good, very bad week. Jim Riggleman hopes that Bruney will figure out his problems so Tyler Clippard will get less work.

  Ian Desmond has been working hard on improving his defense, and it has paid off -- he hasn't committed an error in weeks, after a horrendous start to the season.

  Jason Marquis hasn't started throwing yet after going on the DL on April 21.

  A majority of FJB readers still believe the team is on the right track.

  Livan Hernandez is The Nats Blog's player of the month for April.

  Nationals Daily News wonders what, if anything, anything should be done with the struggling Lannan.

Around the league...

  Johan Santana gave up a career-worst 10 runs in 3 2/3 innings yesterday against the Phillies.
