 While there are improvements around the diamond it isn't showing up in the record. --Mark Zuckerman from

And of course it was the smallest crowd in the history of the Nationals to watch a game. --Adam Kilgore from

Strasburg is not in a talking mood while healing from TJS. --Dave Sheinin in The Washington Post

According to manager Jim Riggleman there is no chance Danny Espinosa is the starting shortstop for the Nationals next season. --Bill Ladson via twitter

A video look at all the broken bats that could have injured players, coaches, or fans. --David Mathews

Should we still even really be asking the question of when or if baseball will solve the maple bat issue? --Craig Calcaterra from

We have heard from writers and fans, and now it is time to hear from a few of the men that run baseball clubs. Most execs are Team Felix with one lone exec playing the wild card and going for Team Price. I guess that is like Team Harry Potter in my Twilight analogy. --Jon Heyman from

A detailed look back at every start C.C. and Felix have had this season, and who has the edge in the arbitrary and made up PosCy points race. --Joe Posnanski at
