With Thanksgiving approaching and the winter meetings still over a week away, baseball has been put on the backburner for many in this town. But not for Tim Murray and I, who are going to be doing our podcast ‘Baseball in the District’ on a weekly basis now.

We got back at it this morning by recording a 30-minute episode focusing on the Nationals’ new coaching staff – including the timely news of Bobby Henley’s retention as third base coach – and what the Nats can do with their bullpen this offseason. We looked at some free agent options and also discussed what the team should do with Drew Storen and Jonathan Papelbon.

You can listen to the show on ESPN 980’s website or download it on iTunes.

    A.J. Cole in the pen, I suggested it before and I second Murray’s and Hughes’suggestion again. Another guy who probably won’t make as a starter but could become a credible pen guy.

      As a long guy?

        2-3 innings. As discussed in the interview A.J. has only 2 quality pitches—like many relievers.

    I hope Rizzo practices addition by subtraction of one guy.
