This turned out to be the Nats pitching podcast, for the most part. We spent quite a lot of time talking about Ross Detwiler and Chien-Ming Wang, but even more time talking about the bullpen, including Tyler Clippard, Drew Storen, Sean Burnett, and Cole Kimball. We also hit the trade deadline a few weeks early.
After a rough series against the Yankees, we take some time to talk about why it isn’t so bad, remember the fun series in Toronto, and reflect on the NL East’s struggles against the AL East. We talk about how terrible Xavier Nady has been, Ryan Zimmerman’s struggles, and a former Nat’s successes.
In this week’s episode, we talk about the Nationals’ sweep of the Boston Red Sox and their pending series against the Toronto Blue Jays, and the Rogers Centre. We talk about Adam LaRoche as a trade chip and the possibility of the Nationals wearing Montreal Expos jerseys against the Jays. That and more in this episode of Nats Talk On The Go.
In this week’s podcast, we talk extensively about the start of the Nats 2012 draft and what the selection of Lucas Giolito means for the farm system’s future. We also talk about Tom Gorzelanny, Steve Lombardozzi, and Gio Gonzalez’s and Bryce Harper’s awards.
