We start the show with trade deadline talk and how the Nationals might be able to make an impact before the deadline. Then we discuss Aroldis Chapman heading to the North Side of Chicago, Murphy and Ramos, and Trea Turner’s significant early impact. We hear about your first ever baseball jerseys and answer you questions, too.
This week, we talk about how great the Home Run Derby was and how ‘meh’ the All-Star Game was (and always is.) We also revisit our first-half predictions and see what we got right and what we got oh so wrong. Finally, you tell us how you occupy yourself during the break and answer some listener questions!
The Nationals have landed four players in the All-Star Game. Lucas Giolito is still with the team, while Michael A. Taylor was sent down. And we both got pretty heated about the thought of shaming Nats fans.
