In this week’s episode of Nats Talk On The Go, Joe and Craig talk about the Washington Nationals’ April and all of the positives and negatives that came along with it. We talk in detail about Bryce Harper and Tyler Moore’s debuts, Danny Espinosa’s ridiculously awful season at the dish so far, and then end by talking about the awesome pitching staff. This will be the last episode of Nats Talk On The Go until May 14, so give it a listen!
This week’s Nats Talk On The Go episode is full of positive stuff, including lots of wins, a continuously impressive pitching staff, and some surprisingly impressive offensive numbers from a few key players. Unfortunately, we also have to talk about the offensive reality of an inability to drive in runs and the continued effect of injuries on the team.
This week, we talk about the Washington Nationals prodigious pitching and their awful offense. Well, maybe it wasn’t quite as awful as you may think. We spend a lot of time both praising and criticizing Ian Desmond, and we talk about about Adam LaRoche and Jayson Werth, too. Tune in.
With this week’s episode, the Washington Nationals regular season is officially underway, and there’s quite a bit to talk about. At the top of the ledger is injuries and the issues with Drew Storen’s elbow. We talk Morse and Ankiel, and Anthony Rendon’s ankle, too. If you throw in some pitching talk, some offensive concerns, recaps of the first series, and some series previews, you have a full lid on this week’s episode.
Question Of The Week: What were the three biggest surprises of the Nationals Opening Series vs. the Cubs? We read a few listener responses, too.
In this week’s episode, Joe and Craig have their first guest, Brett Taylor of Bleacher Nation. Brett provides great insight on the state of the Cubs, who the Nats are playing on Opening Day, and is an all around cool guy. Besides that, a few other pretty interesting things happened for the Nationals in the past week: John Lannan was demoted, Ross Detwiler was added to the rotation, more injury stuff, the bullpen, and spring training surprises, followed by the official end to spring training.
