Alright, so the Nationals came back to earth a little. To be expected, I suppose. Now to deal with self-righteous O’s fans.

Here’s what’s going on at OPACY.

Trea Turner's path to stardom starts with the stolen base
Don't know if you've heard, but this Trea Turner guy is really quite fast.

The Nats and the Mets: Two organizations, two very different paths
The Mets are supposed to be the primary threat to the Nats in the NL East. How much of a threat are they really?

The Nationals are finally (knock on wood times a million) enjoying some good luck
Normally, when the Nats have a few injuries and a mediocre bullpen, it spells the end for the team. This year, it seems like they're right where they want to be.

Soto heads to the DL
Juan Soto, one of the Nats' most prized prospects is currently sidelined with an ankle injury.

The official Andrew Stevenson briefing
Trade bait? Maybe. Major-leaguer in 2017? Also maybe.

Off-field recap: Trea and Tony on TV; Turtles; Tiny Eaton
Plus, a Bryce Harper prom-posal!
