We powered through to post this week’s podcast on short rest with some sore vocal cords, so it’s a quicker listen than most of our podcasts lately. We talk about the Washington Nationals rough weekend, the clubhouse fight between Davey Johnson and GM Mike Rizzo, and Ian Desmond’s and Michael Morse’s injuries. We even hit on the Los Angeles Dodgers’ blockbuster trade. After we run out of baseball to talk about, we talk about Wegman’s and some TV shows. Enjoy.
It was a busy week for the Washington Nationals on a lot of fronts. Lucas Giolito, the Nats top pick in the 2012 draft, is having Tommy John surgery. Stephen Strasburg, despite his shutdown, should be a Cy Young contender. The Nationals don’t want to pay for the Metro when the game runs long, and the Braves extra inning game was a fun one. Finally, we talk about some former Nats greats.
The Washington Nationals just ended their season-long eight game winning streak, and that’s just one of the things we hit on this week. We also talk about Gio Gonzalez flying under the radar and Roger Bernadina‘s amazing catch, but we barely mention Stephen Strasburg‘s innings limit. Also, in case you wanted to know what we think of playoff swag (i.e. NL East Champs gear), we share our thoughts on that, too.
The Washington Nationals just finished a game with one of the most bizarre endings you’ll ever see against the Houston Astros, and there’s a lot to talk about. We hit the Kurt Suzuki trade and its affect on the team and the pitching staff, the Cesar Izturis signing, Tyler Clippard’s recent struggles, and Ross Detwiler’s continued improvement. Craig also happily admits his error about Jordan Zimmermann and the Cy Young conversation.
