The Nats were able to go on a nice winning streak on their road trip against the Cubs and Royals. We break down the good and not-so-good from those games. Also, Mike Rizzo has made a few interesting moves since last week, including the Kurt Suzuki trade and acquiring David DeJesus for four days. We also cover former Nats great JD Martin’s great Triple-A season and Matt Harvey’s disappointing injury news.
Earlier today, David DeJesus was traded for a player to be named later, and Roger Bernadina was released. We talk about why those moves are important. Plus, we discuss who stays up after Ross Ohlendorf makes his return: Chad Tracy or Tyler Moore. We also go over the Bryce Harper’s plunkings, Dan Haren’s resurgence, Jayson Werth’s amazing comple months, Drew Storen’s return, and Rafael Soriano’s awfulness. There’s a lot more in this epic episode, too, including international signee Anderson Franco, Anthony Rendon’s adjustments, the future spring training site, and the next Nats manager.
We’ve made it to episode 60 of the podcast, and we had a crazy week to talk about. We have to talk about the bad stuff, which includes the sweep by the Tigers, the Ross Ohlendorf and Ross Detwiler injury announcements, and steroids. It also includes the good stuff, like Jordan Zimmermann and Dan Haren (no, seriously) being awesome and winning six of their last 10 games through the weekend. Happy baseball!
