Greg DePalma and 1st Amendment Sports founder Ken Meringolo recap the Washington Nationals‘ season, which ended with another disappointing elimination in the NL Division Series. After falling to the Chicago Cubs, what do the Nationals need to get over the top? And if they go after another top pitcher, would they have to give up a young talent in Victor Robles or Michael A. Taylor?
Greg DePalma and 1st Amendment Sports founder Ken Meringolo contemplate which pitcher should be the Washington Nationals‘ primary target in the final days before next Monday’s trade deadline – Detroit’s Justin Verlander, Baltimore’s Zach Britton or Oakland’s Sonny Gray. Whatever the case, it appears likely GM Mike Rizzo will make a major move.
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.
If the Washington Nationals pull the trigger on a trade, who might they be willing to give up to receive that proverbial “missing piece?”
