Merry Strasmas, everybody. It really is the most wonderful time of the year.

On today’s show, we become chatty Cathys about the Washington Nationals, discussing Bryce Harper’s now infamous “That’s a clown question, bro” response as well as the team’s decision regarding Stephen Strasburg’s inning limits. Then, we shift gears to imagine Tim Lincecum coming out of the bullpen to relieve Barry Zito, before bringing it all back home with a look into some of the more popular fielding metrics that are being used.

It’s a¬†goddamn¬†jammed 22 minutes, and I’m as surprised as you’ll be that any of us made it out alive.
