The past week of Washington Nationals baseball hasn’t been at all disappointing. They finished a 6-1 road trip and were named to the top spot in SI’s MLB Power Rankings. We talk about these things, some trade deadline topics, and we even catch a little Olympic fever and talk about the Summer Games.
The past week of Washington Nationals baseball hasn’t been a dull one. The Nats had an epic collapse, an exciting rebound, and an old friend came to visit. There are more injuries to discuss, and this time, they’re serious. Will it have an effect on the trade deadline? We explore that too, all in this episode of Nats Talk On The Go.
In this week’s podcast, we talk about the All-Star Game results and their effect on the Nationals. We also hit injuries, starting pitching and the Cy Young Award, and heap love upon Ross Detwiler. Again. Stick around until the end, where we reveal a secret code word that means nothing.
This week’s Nats Talk On The Go focuses on a recap of the Washington Nationals first half as we hang out over the All-Star Break. We talk some about the Nats All-Stars, too, as we try to deal with a week without real baseball.
We’ve hit the quarter-century mark of the podcast, and it was conveniently the All-Star edition of the podcast. None-the-less, we start the podcast talking about former (and future) All-Star Ryan Zimmerman and his recent hot streak. We also talk about the current All-Stars, and we compare the 2012 Washington Nationals to the 2010 World Series Champion San Francisco Giants as we await the upcoming series with the Gigantes.
