It looks like the Nats aren't going to get Aroldis Chapman
The Cubs are pushing forward with their efforts to land Chapman (names like Jorge Soler and Javier Baez have popped up) and it's looking more and more as if the Nationals will need to look elsewhere.

Rehabbing Aaron Barrett fractures right elbow
The right-hander fractured his pitching elbow, another crippling injury on his dominant arm - the second in two years - which all but eliminates any possibility of a return for Barrett.

And the Nats never looked back.

Apparently Stephen Drew was super, super sick on Saturday night
We knew Stephen Drew was sick, but we didn't know it was that bad.

Ian Desmond and Terrance, the two old faces of the Nationals, reunite in Texas
I'm not crying, you're crying. Okay, I'm crying.
