It was a busy week for the Washington Nationals on a lot of fronts. Lucas Giolito, the Nats top pick in the 2012 draft, is having Tommy John surgery.

Finally, we talk about some former Nats greats.

Stephen Strasburg is up to 145 1/3 innings, and the Washington Nationals are sticking to their guns: once Strasburg hits 180 innings or so, he’s done for the year, and that’s that.
