Monday Morning DC Sports Roundup 8/27/18

Time to go back to work, hopefully we can help distract you for a bit before you start on those emails.

Redskins

Adrian Peterson’s debut went well.

Twitter Reactions to AP

As for the Skins as a whole, preseason is preseason. Some good, some bad.

Broncos Beat Redskins in Preseason Week 3-recap

Nationals

Highs and lows last week, this weekend started off terrible with back-to-back shutout losses

Game 129

Game 130

But FINALLY, after 32 consecutive innings, the Nats pulled off not only scoring a run but also demolished the Mets.

Game 131

Still not looking great playoff-wise.

Wizards

Nothing super eventful. We dropped a few Wall blogs.

John Wall Summer of Separation Vid

John Wall-Supernova

Capitals

Just waiting to kick off the hunt for back-to-back Cups.

Monday Morning DC Sports Roundup 8/20/18

Time to go back to work, hopefully we can help distract you for a bit before you start on those emails.

Redskins

It was a running back carousel over the weekend, Skins met with Veteran Jamaal Charles and worked out Orleans Darkwa. Darkwa appears to be seeking a starting spot, so unlikely to be a good fit.

The bigger news was announced about who is visiting today.

Skins fan reactions on Twitter seem to be 60/40 against signing AP. I’m definitely intrigued.

Nationals

It was the perfect opportunity for the Nats. The Braves are losing games, the Phillies are losing games, it was a series versus the last place Marlins. Instead, they screwed themselves royally.

Friday night was the highlight of the series as they won 8-2 behind Mad Max and HR’s from Zim and Wieters. The other two games were awful. Saturday night was an extra innings loss 7-5 and Sunday was a dumpster fire as Jose Urena tossed a two-hitter and the fish won 12-1

Nats are currently 7 games back in the division and 6.5 back in WC. You can go back and review the game recaps right here on the site.

Wizards

Nothing to report, just waiting for it to be basketball season.

We put out a few pieces:

Capitals

You still have our hearts Caps, the only team to be proud of. The good brother in a family of screw-ups.

Ovie had a baby, cute.

Just remember…THE CAPS ARE THE STANLEY CUP CHAMPIONS!

That’s your weekend in a nutshell folks.

Pro tip of the day: the more windows/tabs you have up on your computer, the busier you can appear
