Bullpen falls apart again for Nationals in 6-5 loss

PHOENIX — The Washington Nationals added two relievers to their bullpen this week in as big a deadline deal as they have ever made. But they could not add seven, and will have to rely on those they had all along at some point or another. In Friday night’s 6-5 loss to the Arizona Diamondbacks, Enny

Analysis | Fantasy football 2017: Five late-round picks worth reaching for

Most fantasy drafts follow a script. In standard-scoring leagues, the first three picks should be running backs — most likely David Johnson, Le’Veon Bell and Ezekiel Elliott. Then the trio of top wide receivers, Antonio Brown, Odell Beckham, Jr. and Julio Jones, will likely come off the board. In

The question the Orioles don’t want to even ask: Is is time to trade Manny Machado?

In one dizzying 72-hour stretch leading up to the 2000 Major League Baseball trade deadline, the Baltimore Orioles, with the second-highest payroll and second-worst record in the American League, traded six popular veteran players – Mike Bordick, Harold Baines, Charles Johnson, Mike Timlin, B.J. Surhoff

The best player available at MLB trade deadline is probably someone you’ve never heard of

Major League Baseball’s nonwaiver trade deadline has recently had a theme. In 2015, ace starters like David Price, Johnny Cueto and Cole Hamels all changed teams before July 31. A year later, star relievers were all the rage, with Aroldis Chapman, Andrew Miller and Mark Melancon finding new homes

A week with Hogs 2.0: Redskins’ O-line does yoga, eats vegan and trains insanely hard

HOUSTON — Nine of Trent Williams’s fellow Washington Redskins offensive linemen gathered around him in the corner of a state-of-the-art gym earlier this month. Each wore gear emblazoned with “Hogs 2.0,” and they were here, at Williams’s invitation, to work out together, bond and get closer toward

Southpaws key as Nats close out road trip

PHOENIX — The Washington Nationals have three more games before they return home for the first time since before the all-star break. They’ll play those three games in Phoenix, sheltered from the summer heat by the Chase Field roof, but subjected to pennant race intensity by the fact that the Diamondbacks

Draymond Green scoffs at Blazers’ talk of being a major threat with Carmelo Anthony

The Portland Trail Blazers seem to be putting the cart way ahead of the horse with their talk of Carmelo Anthony. The New York Knicks forward has let it be known that he’d be willing to waive his no-trade clause to be possibly dealt to the Cleveland Cavaliers or Houston Rockets, not necessarily to

The NFL never wanted to be the No Fun League. It just happened that way — until now.

There never was a mandate, those who made the NFL’s rules over the years recall, to suck the joy out of whatever Terrell Owens, Chad Johnson or Joe Horn might do to punctuate a touchdown. When Commissioner Roger Goodell announced in May that the NFL would relax those rules — making things such as

Analysis | The buyer’s guide to the MLB trade deadline

Baseball’s trade deadline is just around the corner, leaving front offices around the league just days to give an honest assessment of their team’s chances of making the playoffs and, for some, a championship run. A few teams already have made their choice. The Chicago Cubs acquired left-handed

Adrian Beltre, chasing his 3,000th hit, would rather help the Rangers chase a playoff spot

BALTIMORE — The question of whether a given team should be a buyer or seller at the July 31 trade deadline is not typically posed to one of that team’s players. But Adrian Beltre is different. He is the elder statesman of the Texas Rangers, their undisputed clubhouse leader and, at age 38, still

Motivated to make roster, Redskins D-lineman Joey Mbu trains with ‘legends’ this offseason

HOUSTON — Joey Mbu didn’t even know Trent Williams co-owned a gym 40 minutes from his home here until this offseason, but it’s been a boon to the Redskins defensive lineman as he enters his third season with an opportunity to crack the 53-man roster. Mbu started working out at O Athletik in February

How the NBA made summer league a real thing and stole July in the process

Perspective | Should Washington celebrate Ryan Zimmerman’s franchise HR record? It’s complicated.

On Monday, Ryan Zimmerman hit a solo home run in the first inning in Cincinnati that was the 235th of his career. Depending on your vantage point, it was historic or trivial, momentous or meaningless. That blast gave Zimmerman one more home run than Vladimir Guerrero hit over his entire career with the

Vick/Kaepernick ‘hair’ issue sends Chris Long on a tweetstorm of strong opinions

Michael Vick caused plenty of headlines by suggesting on Fox Sports 1 that Colin Kaepernick should get a haircut. He also caused Eagles defensive end Chris Long to embark on a multiday tweetstorm, one in which the 10th-year NFL veteran argued that Kaepernick’s skills easily merited a job in the league
