In this post-Winter Meetings, Craig rejoins Joe to discuss things from inside and ouside of Washington Nationals news. For NatsTown, we talk about the Denard Span deal and the impressive Nationals defense, readdress the LaRoche vs. Morse deal, and evaluate the Dan Haren signing. Across the league, we discuss the Rays and Royals trade, the Marlins Fire Sale (if only a few months late), and some other signings across the league.
The Washington Nationals offseason has been newsworthy, so it was about time to record another podcast. Joe talks about the Denard Span signing, he evaluates the Adam LaRoche vs. Michael Morse conversation, and he defends Danny Espinosa vigorously. He also talks about pitching, Zack Greinke, Zach Duke, and the non-tenders: John Lannan, Jesus Flores, and Tom Gorzelanny. Finally, there’s reason to look up about the team’s lineup, even though the offseason isn’t anywhere near over.
