The Nationals are one win away from winning their first NLDS. Jayson Werth and Ryan Zimmerman are the offensive sparks in support of another elite outing from the bullpen.
The Nationals earned their first postseason win since 2012 fueled by surprise hero Jose Lobaton. Also, Jayson Werth was great, and Dusty Baker’s managing was masterful.
The Nationals may have lost Game 1 of the 2016 NLDS to the Dodgers, but despite being down early in the series, we don’t think it’s all bad! On Scherzer’s outing, Zimmerman’s resurgence, and looking forward to Game 2.
The Nationals have made their third NLDS in five years. We make our predictions for the series, including rosters and series results.
We remember the life and career of Jose Fernandez at the top of the show before returning to our regular format. We discuss the Wilson Ramos injury, pitching rotations, and more.
Daniel Murphy has a mystery leg injury that’s concerning Dusty Baker, Stephen Strasburg threw a baseball, and we talk post-season pitching. We also answer several dozen great listener questions.
The Nats took care of business against the Mets this week, Stephen Strasburg isn’t dead, and Tanner Roark is so, so good. All that, plus many amazing listener questions.
The Nationals 2016 season has been great, and we spend a bunch of time talking about that. (And temporarily losing it as Stephen Strasburg left the game.) We also look ahead to postseason baseball.
[NL East clinch predictions: Joe – September 17; Craig – September 19]
