    Stras on the shelf, Is Garcia the next Soto + Bill Ripken joins the pod...

    Stras on the shelf, Is Garcia the next Soto + Bill Ripken joins the pod...

    Todd and Chase are without their finely coiffed co-host, as Nick enjoys a well-deserved (?) vacation. That doesn't stop them from wondering how Mr. Ashooh spends his time away from podcasts...

    When the topic turns to baseball, there was plenty to discuss --- from Stephen Strasburg's season ending surgery, to what the team should add by next week's trade deadline, to impressions of rookie Luis Garcia - and whether he can keep his impressive start going.

    The guys are also joined by MLB Network Analyst Bill Ripken, who offers his take on what the Nats should be looking for in the trade market. And Ripken's praise of Juan Soto is music to all Nats fans ears.

    And - Todd actually has a "Walk-Off" this week...

    Nats playing .500 ball, Strasburg concerns and Soto for MVP?

    Nats playing .500 ball, Strasburg concerns and Soto for MVP?

    The Nationals won their latest series against the surprising Orioles, but they still seem to be just treading water at the moment. But with the expanded playoffs this season, there's really no reason to worry now...

    However, there might be cause for concern when it comes to Stephen Strasburg and his hand injury. He's obviously a key to the team's success, but is shutting him down for the season a better decision for the long term?

    Juan Soto continues to amaze - despite missing the early part of the season. With a third of the season in the books, he's a legitimate NL MVP candidate. And he continues to be one of the most entertaining player in the game. But do those antics make him more beloved or disliked?

    Plus, after Strasburg and Anibal Sanchez had their run-ins with umpires from the stands, who should be the next Nats pitcher to be ejected/politely asked to leave? There's only 1 right answer here...

    And it wouldn't be a Walkoff without a little shade at the Nationals Twitter account...
