LISTEN: FBB talking Washington Nationals' winter moves on The District

We made another appearance on The District on Tuesday night, talking about the moves the Washington Nationals have made thus far this winter like adding Daniel Murphy and Ben Revere and whether or not I think they need to add to the starting depth...

We've talked to them a few times before, but we always enjoy joining Marc Shea, Mike Harar, Robert Henson and Chris LeSage on The District to discuss all things Washington Nationals. In this segment we discussed the Nats' moves this winter.

What does Ben Revere's addition mean for Michael A. Taylor? Will Jonathan Papelbon be the closer on Opening Day 2016?

How about the 3-year/$37.5M deal the Nationals gave to Daniel Murphy? Was it wrong of me to describe Murphy as Plan C for Washington.. even if it's like, technically accurate after the Nationals made a play for Ben Zobrist and tried to trade for Brandon Phillips. Speaking of the Phillips talks, we discussed why that trade didn't happen.

How about the Nationals' starting rotation? Will they add to the mix or go with Max Scherzer, Stephen Strasburg, Gio Gonzalez, Joe Ross and Tanner Roark? How about the starting depth in the organization?

Are you comfortable with the organizational depth after the top five starters? After the likes of right-handers A.J. Cole and Taylor Jordan, who are the starters who might make an impact at the major league level in 2016?

We talked about all that in more in a quick, but info-filled segment and there's a whole lot of show to listen to beyond that if you're a D.C. sports fan. Check out our spot and the rest through the link below... and thanks to the folks at The District for having us on again:

[ed. note - "I think I said Jefry Rodriguez's name when discussing prospects who might make an impact this year, but meant to say Reynaldo Lopez, but you know extemporaneous speech and all, so yeah, I didn't go back and listen but I think I caught myself at the time and properly chastised myself in my head, but it's too late to edit that change in... I think."]
