Game 155: Ruiz Impresses with the Arm & Bat in Losing Effort
Show Notes

The Nats lost 7-6 in Cincinnati as Nick Castellanos hit a walk-off homer against Patrick Murphy. Al & Tim evaluate Keibert Ruiz's evening as he threw out two runners and also homered for the second straight night. Is Ruiz lately starting show the franchise catcher potential we have been told about?

(7:10) Lane Thomas homered again and kept the train rolling. Hear Tim's opinion on where the CF derby stands for Opening Day 2022.  Robles or Thomas?

(21:57) Erick Fedde had another subpar start  as his ERA is now at 5.26. How sure are we that he will be on the roster next year?

(35:16) Josh Rogers takes the mound Sunday after his excellent performance in Miami.  We have some fun wondering if he or Paolo are currently the ace of the pitching staff.

(45:45) We read a listener email recalling his memories of October 2019 while living in Houston during the World Series.
