Wednesday morning Nats Q&A

CHICAGO – It's been quite an eventful start to the second half of the season. The Nationals experienced three rain delays in St. Louis, winning a suspended game in extra innings before dropping the other two. They saw their closer land on the injured list and their best trade chip suffer an injury that fortunately didn't linger for long.

Since arriving in Chicago, the Nats have won a game behind the efforts of their two remaining reliable relievers, then lost the next night after the rest of that bullpen allowed 14 runs in two innings. Yes, that's 14 runs in two innings.

On the minor league level, they promoted one of their top prospects to Double-A, they signed a bunch of recent draft picks (including two guys well above slot value) and are now just trying to lock up their No. 1 pick before next week's deadline.

Oh, and the trade deadline is fast approaching, as well.

Given all that, this seems like a good time to take your questions. Submit them in the comments section below, then check back throughout the morning for my responses ...
