Greg DePalma and 1st Amendment Sports founder Ken Meringolo look at the latest Washington Nationals headlines, as starters Max Scherzer and Gio Gonzalez finish June on a roll but the bullpen blew two more saves last week. Perhaps Angels veteran Huston Street or Detroit’s Justin Wilson can come in a trade. Also, it wasn’t a great week for manager Dusty Baker.
Greg DePalma and 1st Amendment Sports founder Ken Meringolo continue to lament the Washington Nationals‘ bullpen problems, where Blake Treinen already may have worn out his welcome as closer. On the bright side, Gio Gonzalez (pictured) has been off to a strong start, and the hitting is solid behind Daniel Murphy and Bryce Harper.
The Washington Nationals are fresh off a 3-game sweep of their top rivals and now must try to increase their NL East lead with upcoming home series’ against the Reds and Brewers before facing the Mets again in New York prior to the All-Star break.
