    Looking at the road ahead for the Nats with ESPN's Karl Ravech

    With the Nationals set to come back from their week long break with series against the Mets and the Orioles, Nick Ashooh, Todd Dybas and Chase Hughes got together to discuss what they have seen from the team a few weeks into the season. Chase continued his pitch for Carter Kieboom's place in the baseball Hall of Fame, while Nick and Todd bickered about the runner on base at the start of extra innings rule. To settle that debate we brought in the host of ESPN's Baseball Tonight Karl Ravech. The guys also talked about the Orioles chances of making the playoffs in this shortened season, thoughts on the latest COVID outbreaks and why Karl loves to go after Twitter trolls. After saying goodbye to Karl the guys each give a walk-off but be warned --- after listening to Chase's, you might want to throw something at him...

    2020 Nationals Season Preview

    2020 Nationals Season Preview

    The Nationals Talk crew get you ready for Opening Day with a preview of what they expect from the 2020 Nationals.

    This will be as far from a normal regular season as you can get, but we're starting to see signs that resemble America's Pastime. The exhibition games from over the weekend featured crowd noise from crowd-less stands --- something Chase and Todd thought they'd hate. But, you'll hear why they've had a change of heart.

    They wrap up by giving some predictions for the season. How many Nats wins? Who leads them in batting average, home runs and ERA? Plus we get a bold prediction on the season.

    Summer Training Update: Scherzer shines, Kieboom bomb and other notes

    Nick, Todd and Chase are back together to talk about the upcoming restart to the Nationals season, but this time we have actual baseball to talk about ladies and gentlemen. Todd was able to be in the press box while the team scrimmaged, even close enough to hear Mad Max grunting and Anibal Sanchez talking trash. Chase's infatuation with Carter Kieboom increases ten-fold after hearing about the bomb he hit off Daniel Hudson. Plus, is the feud of the century between Todd and the Nationals social media account finally over?
