Yusmeiro Petit has a weird position on the Giants. He was passable as a spot starter, but couldn't earn a place in a strong San Francisco rotation. The Giants don't need him to close out games, either, and Petit is capable of pitching longer than only an inning. But last night, in the longest MLB postseason game ever… » 10/05/14 1:06pm 10/05/14 1:06pm

Nats Fans Went A Little Crazy Over Jayson Werth Gnomes

The first fans got in line for Jayson Werth garden gnome giveaway night at about 2:10 p.m., five hours before first pitch and more than two hours before the gates to the ballpark actually opened. That would turn out not to be excessive: gnome night ended up being so popular, some 15,000 Nats fans didn't make it to… » 8/06/14 9:23am 8/06/14 9:23am
