11:36 AM ET 05.21 | The Washington Nationals bullpen has gotten even weaker after relief pitcher Ryan Mattheus suffered an injury in the locker room following his brutal performance during the team's 13-4 loss to the San Diego Padres on Sunday night. After the game, Mattheus took his frustration out in the locker room by punching a locker. Unfortunately, that just added to his frustrations by causing Mattheus to suffer a broken throwing hand. There is no immediate timetable for his return, but he is expected to "be out awhile" following his trip to the hand specialist.

Hand specialist?
He should be going to a HEAD specialist - that man has anger issues. Rex Ryan doesn't let it bother HIM when he loses.
Not to mention, that locker couldn't care less if he broke his hand or not.

the nationals should suspend his contract until his hand heals. Same with any team when a player does something dumb like punching lockers or walls or water coolers. The locker didn't give up walkoff hit. Why hit the locker. Now they have to bring someone from minors to take your place. what happens if the minor league player comes up and does very well. much better than expectations. Could cost your spot on roster. Smooth move EXLAX.

2012 was a golden opportunity wasted by a Nats front suffering from a prideful belief that a championship deferred in 2012 would result in multiple championships in years to come. Well, **** happens.
