AUDIO: Talking Nationals With 106.7 the FAN's Chad Dukes And LaVar Arrington + Nats Nightly

USA TODAY Sports

Before last night's game, 106.7 the FAN in D.C. LaVar Arrington and Chad Dukes were nice enough to have us on their show to talk Nationals. After the game, FBB's Doghouse and I talked about the Nationals' 3-2 loss to the visiting Los Angeles Dodgers.

Before last night's game, 106.7 the FAN in D.C.'s LaVar Arrington and Chad Dukes were nice enough to once again have us on to talk about what the immediate future holds for the Washington Nationals who started a three-game set with the Los Angeles Dodgers last night in the nation's capital. The Nationals entered the first game with LA a game over .500 at 48-47 overall after the All-Star Break. The Non-Waiver Trade Deadline is just 11 days away, so of course there was some discussion about whether the Nationals will be buyers or sellers heading towards July 31st:

LaVar Arrington: Are the Nationals going to be buyers or sellers at the trade deadline?:

Federal Baseball: "I definitely don't think they're going to be sellers. But I don't necessarily think what they need to buy is out there either. I don't think there's a starter out there who is going to make a difference if [Matt] Garza is getting traded to Texas like it sounds. That was probably the last guy out there who you'd really want to give up anything significant for... If they could get a bench bat maybe that would help them a little bit. I don't think they're going to get a real difference-maker on offense unless [Mike] Rizzo pulls something out of his hat and I just don't see the pitching out there that's worth it to give up some of the prospects that they'd have to give up in order to get it. I don't think they're going to be selling off any items at the trade deadline coming up, but I don't necessarily see them making any big moves either."

After last night's game FBB's Doghouse and I talked about the Nationals' 3-2 loss to the Dodgers on Nats Nightly, our nightly podcast which usually features Doghouse, myself and host Dave Nichols from the District Sports Page, but Mr. DSP had the night off last night so it was just me, my echo (left laptop volume on so mic picked up my end of the conversation, sorry!) and the estimable Doghouse talking sullenly about another low-scoring loss which left the Nats in 3rd place in the NL East after 96 games:
