This is it. This is the make-or-break road trip - the Nats can gain or lose a whole lot of ground in the standings, but they'll have to go through Cleveland and San Francisco no matter what. Here. We. Go.

Here's the news from Progressive Field.

Dusty Baker, Nats, need to figure out what's next for Trea Turner
With a completely healthy starting lineup, Dusty Baker would still love to find a place for Trea Turner in the everyday lineup. The question, of course, is where he fits in.

Royals apparently want Lucas Giolito for Wade Davis
The number one prospect in baseball is the asking price for a closer with one-and-a-half years left on his contract.

Yes, Bryce Harper knows he's in a slump - and he's determined to get out of it
Harper has been struggling big-time since April, and is stuck in a 4 for 45 rut. But don't tell him what he's doing right or wrong - Harper knows what he's doing. Even if Matt Williams isn't there anymore.

Victor Robles has Bryce Harper caliber levels of hustle
The Dominican prospect goes all-out, and rarely fears the consequences, whether it's going gap-to-gap to catch a fly ball, or being hit by quite a few pitches.
