We told you he was gonna make for lousy team chemistry! On this edition of NATS and Son we take apart the Papelbon choke incident and leave no one untouched. We hear from previous incidents throughout history where Matt Williams was an unreliable witness to events. And Mike Rizzo? We haven’t forgotten him and the others at the clueless helm of the Boras Corporation (aka Nationals). All on a rollicking episode of NATS and Son and Son!
We bid a hearty welcome back to the show to Sean podcasting live from Berlin! Before he heads down to Bavaria for Oktoberfest we break down some preliminary thoughts about future deals, the good, the bad, and this year’s end of season award predictions. All on a very special international edition of NATS and Son!
As summer begins to wind down into fall, so we say bye-byes to the Nats’ playoff hopes. Dropping three games in a row to the Mets, and in the way they blew it, turns a grown man’s fancy to thoughts of next year. A little bit of post-mortem and some generalized thinking about next year’s team and off-season maneuvering. Call the hot stove repairman, we are getting ready to fire it up prematurely on NATS and Son (sans Son on another Continent).
NATS and Son is flying solo while the son is off on a European adventure. To fill in the time during this false hope pennant race, we find out what makes Casey Janssen’s motor run, explore the Strasburg and Matt Harvey connection, and close with a suggested itinerary for our student studying abroad in Germany from none other than Herr Zimmerman!
