Self sabotage is common in the pursuit of goals, and for whatever reason most of us have experienced this at some point in our lives. Be it a fear of failure, a lack of self worth, or life being so stressful and overwhelming we get caught in bad habit loops which see us take 1 step forwards and two steps backwards. Natalie Butler, a coach to stressed women, joins me to talk about her experiencing burning out, sabotaging herself, and getting caught in negative habit loops.

We can't think of a better way to transition to the postseason than with a reminder of what we love most about baseball -- the players. Washington Nationals catcher Riley Adams joins us to share his stories from getting his first glove to getting his call up. We talk about what makes a great walk-up song (Riley's use of Blink-182's "All the Small Things" made him an instant favorite with Nats fans). Riley encourages kids to keep sports fun by playing a lot of them, and gets serious about minor league pay.

Amanda and Ryan take their turn on this episode to reflect on the Nationals season that was. A season like no other in recent memory, there was plenty to look back on and plenty of questions moving forward. To help answer some of those questions, we are joined by best friend of the show, Matt Weyrich (@byMattWeyrich) of NBCSW to recap the Nats' season and see what might be in store for the team this offseason. We talk about the young guys, possible extensions with the CBA looming, and if this is indeed a career for Ryan Zimmerman. Listen in! Check out HalfStHighHeat.com for more content!

The Red Sox have clinched a postseason spot and will host the Yankees in a Wild Card game on Tuesday at Fenway Park. Can you believe it!? Today we talk how we kinda called this months ago, the stress of everything that went down during Sunday's game, if we're surprised the Blue Jays season is over, the unusual situation of pausing the game for farewell ovations to Nats players while the Sox were mounting a critical comeback, how insane it was that Juan Soto had zero hits the entire series, how much credit Ryan Brasier deserves for the Sox being in this position, some very questionable umpire calls this weekend, how well Alex Cora managed specifically this series with the NL rules in effect, reaction to JD hurting himself tripping over 2nd base while heading to the outfield, having no trust in Ottavino at this point, the importance of #RallyCups this weekend, if we have any issue with champagne celebrations for just getting into the Wild Card game, the Sox needing to put up more runs in the first half of games, a big lookahead to this do or die game coming up against the Yankees and much more. GO SOX!
The Nats ended their season with a 7-5 loss to Playoff bound Boston. Mark & Al open with their thoughts on the emotional moment in the top of the 8th when Ryan Zimmerman was ceremoniously removed from the game to thunderous applause. It certainly felt like his final game, will it end up being so?(10:47) Juan Soto struggled on Sunday and struck out three times. Given that nobody else ran away with it, does he still have a chance to win the NL Cy Young?(19:48) Alex Avila had a memorable final game of his career. He connected on a 2 run double and also was given a standing ovation as he exited the field for the final time.(25:16) Joan Adon wowed in his Major League debut. Adon struck out 9 members of the Red Sox in just under 6 IP. The bulk of Adon's season was spent in High-A Wilmington, and yet he played a factor in a game with direct postseason implications.(33:43) Mike Rizzo spoke to the media before the game and indicated he is not planning on tanking next season. Do we have an idea of how long the Free Agency shopping list will be? Has his philosophy on pitching changed? Do we have an updated timeline on the rebuild?
The Nats lost 5-3 to Boston on Saturday afternoon. Mark & Al go through Josiah Gray's good outing, which was arguably his best start of the season.(8:13) The bullpen had another active day and Mason Thompson was the low light as he walked an AL relief pitcher on four pitches. What approach should Mike Rizzo take for next season in bolstering the bullpen?(20:06) Gerardo Parra made possibly his final at bat in Washington, Jordy Mercer's ejection caused a roster scramble, and Juan Soto had a testy at bat in a crucial moment in the 8th inning.(31:53) Carter Kieboom went o for 4 and his average is barely over the Mendoza Line. Is he losing his chance to win the job for 2022?(36:05) Davey Martinez had a notable pregame press conference. 1) He gave a vote of confidence to pitching Coach Jim Hickey. 2) An update on Stephen Strasburg.(45:39) The Nationals will have a prospect make his MLB debut Sunday on the mound. Learn more about Joan Adon as he faces the Red Sox in a very crucial Game 162 for the visitors.
The Nats have no effect on the National League playoffs, but could play a major role in the American League wild card race. Bobby and Amy break down how the Nationals can play spoiler in D.C. this weekend. Plus, handing out 2021 season awards.
The Nats lost 4-2 to the Red Sox in a crucial game in terms of the AL Wildcard chase. Al & Mark react to Juan Soto managing to walk four more times on Friday, lifting his total on the season to 144. Does Soto still have a chance at the MVP?(9:28) Jordy Mercer homered, but curiously got the start at 2B over Luis Garcia. Just a day off for Garcia or anything more?(15:20) Josh Rogers was impressive for five shutout innings, but it unraveled when facing Boston's lineup for the third time. Has Rogers status for 2022 improved after these string of good outings. Who has a better chance to start next year... Fedde or Rogers?(23:40) Kyle Finnegan was voted by the collective local media as Nationals Pitcher of the Year. Mark explains why the nod went to Finnegan and not our guy Paolo.(29:35) Update on what Sunday's season finale looks like for a potential Washington starting pitcher. Tenor of the game is up in the air, depending on the Sox's situation in the standings.
It is Nick and Monty this episode as we have a potential chaotic weekend ahead of us with the Nats being heavily involved in playoff implications... just not for themselves. Depending on other teams' performances, the Nats going 1-2 in this series would result in a 4 way tie for 2 playoff spots in the AL Wild card, resulting in plenty of subsequent madness heading into the playoffs. We breakdown all of those potential scenarios as well as chime in on the Nats' perspective on all of this as we recap their season. Listen in! Check out HalfStHighHeat.com for more content!

The Nats lost 10-5 in Colorado in their final road game of the season. Al & Mark assess where the rotation stands as Paolo Espino's outing was cut short due to the two hour rain delay that began in the top of the 3rd. Will he get the nod for Sunday's finale vs. Boston as Patrick Corbin season is over?(17:55) Juan banged his knee into the chain link outfield fence while making an excellent catch. He stayed in the game and we have been told he is OK. At the plate, he had a RBI infield single and a walk (1 for 4). If the game had been called during the rain delay, his single would not have counted. Why not sit him after running into the fence?(25:21) Alcides Escobar made one of the pretties defensive plays of the season just after making a throwing error. Hear what the hosts have to say about his jump throw across the diamond.(27:57) Listener submitted question about how will the Nationals fix the pitching for next season. Will it all be internal or will they spend money in free agency?(34:30) Cade Cavalli's final start in Rochester did not even last an inning. His numbers in AAA were not nearly as good as his previous stints. What's a realistic expectation for when he will be promoted to Washington?
Bram starts the show talking Bryce Harper as the Phillies are starting to mount a PR campaign to get him the MVP award. Ron Rivera's chat with the media today going into the Falcons game, plus some Nats news in notes heading into the final weekend of the season. See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
The Nats lost 3-1 in Colorado as Patrick Corbin struck out nine in what could be his final start of the season. Mark & Al evaluate Corbin as September has by far been his best month of his terrible season. How important will ending this year on a positive note be for the high priced lefty? What are the chances he pitches Sunday vs. the Red Sox?(15:27) Juan Soto went 0 for 4 and didn't reach base for the first time in two weeks. He is now hitting .318; which trails Trea Turner (.325). Should he maybe get the day off on Wednesday?(20:40) Ryan Zimmerman had an excellent game on his 37th birthday. He had a double, an infield single, and made a web gem catch in foul territory. What insights do we have on if this weekend will be his final time at Nationals Park?(29:44) A listener email asking about the Nationals organization infrastructure regarding player development. Our conversation quickly then moves into the direction of Baseball Analytics.
Nick and Amanda are joined by Monty this episode as we Quick Pitch baseball movies. Since the Nats aren't always the most fun team to watch currently, we talk about some of the baseball we do like to watch in the form of movies! Then we get into an insane possibility with the AL Wild Card and the potential for there to be a 5 way tie at the end of the season. As we transition into Nats news, we discuss potential free agents and how to fix a once again horrid bullpen. Listen in! Check out HalfStHighHeat.com for more content!

Nationals frontbencher Bridget McKenzie today penned an opinion piece in the Australian Financial Review criticising her Coalition colleagues, Josh Frydenberg and Dave Sharma for advocating a net zero target.
The Nats beat Colorado 5-4 as Josiah Gray has been victorious in back to back starts. Al & Mark discuss Gray's outing, which was scoreless through the first five innings. What led to him becoming ineffective though in the 6th? Was it hustling down the line on a bunt or was it facing the Rockies lineup for a third time?(10:08) The Nationals bullpen had a good night as they only allowed one run. Davey Martinez changed it up a bit as Kyle Finnegan pitched the 8th and Tanner Rainey took over for the save. What should we read into this move?(16:03) Alcides Escobar paced the offense with three hits and a crucial insurance RBI in the 9th. We also give our daily Juan Soto update as he currently trails Trea Turner by one point for the NL Batting Crown.(24:57) Luis Garcia had a crucial 2 run single, but made a brutal throwing error in the 5th. Was it lack of concentration that affected what should have been a routine throw?(32:43) Patrick Corbin will make possibly the final start of his turbulent season on Tuesday night in Denver. How different would he have been handled if Washington were in the divisional race?

The Nats lost 9-2 in Cincinnati as Ryne Harper yielded a MLB record tying fourteenth grand slam on the season by the pitching staff. Before we get into our usual show, Tim does some end of season housekeeping.(5:38) Mark & Al recap Josh Rogers' outing as he held the Reds scoreless early, but it unraveled for him the third time through the order. What was different for Rogers today as opposed to his previous solid outings?(11:02) Only two relievers were used on Sunday, but Harper became the twelfth to allow a grand slam. What has led to this phenomenon this year for the Nationals? Or is it simply bad pitching?(20:24) The offense had a rare off day as Juan Soto went 0 for 3 with a walk (138). Carter Kieboom returned to the lineup from his forearm issue and had two hits.(24:38) Riley Adams was back behind the plate and also drew two walks. Al is ecstatic to see Adams back on the field after the young catcher had been on the bench for the past week and a half. Why haven't we seen him play first base at all?(29:01) Washington is making their only trip of the season to Coors Field this week. Do pitchers have to overcome psychological factors before pitching in that atmosphere? Will this be another bullpen heavy series?
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.
The Nats late rally came up short in Cincinnati as they lost 8-7 in 11 innings. Mark & Al wonder why the Nationals so often can score late in the game, but then can't bring in a run in extras. The 9th inning comeback involved three runs scored; all coming with two outs.(9:18) Keibert Ruiz hit his first homer with Washington and had three hits overall on the evening. Ruiz is hitting .315 this month. (11:47) Juan Soto did not get any hits, but was walked four times on Friday. Hear Mark put in perspective at how he is keeping historical company along with Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig.(17:07) Paolo Espino had a so-so start and only recorded two strikeouts. He needs eight Ks next week in Colorado if he wants to achieve his stated goal of 100 strikeouts this season.(26:32) Carter Kieboom was not in the lineup and will get a MRI Saturday for a left forearm issue. Jordy Mercer got the start in his place at third base.
10:55 - Washington Football Team: thoughts on various aspects of Washington's game at the Buffalo Bills in Week 3 off comments from Ron Rivera, including which disappointing unit - the WFT's defense or the Bills' offense - will prevail, Taylor Heinicke and more 28:11 - Guest: Buffalo Bills insider Matt Parrino of Syracuse.com and of the SHOUT! podcast on the Bills on the Washington Football Team's opponent in Week 3 49:22 - Washington Football Team: Galdi's Rhyming Keys for a WFT win at the Buffalo Bills in Week 3...and Galdi's prediction for the game 01:01:16 - Nationals: react to another monster game for Juan Soto and more from a 3-2 win at the Cincinnati Reds...and react to continued change for the Nats behind the scenes 01:16:30 - College Football: GaldiLocks for Week 4 - picks for Maryland-Kent State, Virginia-Wake Forest and Navy-Houston 01:24:33 - Capitals: examining bad news regarding Nicklas Backstrom and reviewing the Caps' offseason - including some scheduled fun with Evgeny Kuznetsov - as Caps Training Camp begins 01:34:41 - Orioles: examining a 3-0 win over the Texas Rangers, including more production from Austin Hays and Ryan Mountcastle and a nice outing from Zac Lowther Learn more about your ad choices.

The Nats edged the Reds 3-2 for their 3rd straight victory. Al & Mark search for the proper superlatives for Juan Soto as his torrid stretch continued on Thursday night. He yet again reached base four times, set a franchise record in walks, and has lifted his average to .325. Is it fair to say he is the NL MVP frontrunner with a week to go? How does this recent run affect potential extension talks?(22:52) Patrick Corbin did not allow a run as he almost lasted seven innings. Can fans be optimistic about the lefty for next season as he has had three good outings this month? Corbin looked like the 2019 version of himself while on the mound in Cincinnnati.(28:01) Tanner Rainey pitched a scoreless eighth inning while Kyle Finnegan struggled to lock down the save. Will we see Rainey become the closer in the final week?(34:44) Carter Kieboom went 0 for 4 Thursday night and his September stats are not looking good. Do we have a feel for how 3B is stacking up for Opening Day next season?

The Nats won 7-5 in Miami for a rare series victory. Mark & Al begin with Josiah Gray's much needed solid outing that resulted in his career Major League win. Most encouraging for Gray was that he did not allow any homers and only issued one walk in six innings.(11:55) Juan Soto was all over the scorecard on Wednesday night as he reached base five times and was a triple shy of the cycle. Soto walked twice; tying Bryce Harper's single season franchise record of 130. Where does Soto's MVP campaign stack up against Harper's case?(23:53) Luis Garcia went yard for the sixth time this season and had a strong series at the plate. This month he has eight doubles and is hitting above .280.(31:51) Alex Avila started for the second time recently as Riley Adams has only started one of the past eleven games at catcher. A flabbergasted Al begs Mark for an explanation as to why they are using the retiring veteran as opposed to giving the at bats to Riley.(36:42) Cade Cavalli only lasted four innings in his latest AAA start, but didn't walk any batters. Should fans be concerned that he has struggled at this level?
Tony opens the show by talking about the Nats, and also about something on his street that is bothering him. Steve Sands of the Golf Channel calls in to preview the Ryder Cup, Chuck Todd calls in to make his NFL picks, and Tony closes out the show by opening up the Mailbag.

Where does the lefty stack up for the team's plans in 2022? Hear the hosts put in perspective how rare a deep start has been for the starting staff this season.(14:26) Keibert Ruiz continued his offensive surge as he had two hits while hitting in the 5th spot. He has not yet homered, but his recent production at the plate is an encouraging sign.(17:32) Juan Soto reached base three times (or was it four?) on Tuesday night as he had two more hits. One of his times reaching base came as a result of an error by the pitcher, leading to the statistical quandary.(27:37) The Nationals relieved many of their minor league coaches of their duties. Is this a sign of an impending organizational overhaul?(40:12) An absolute must listen voice memo regarding October of 2019.
The Nats lost a heartbreaker 8-7 at Miami in ten innings. Mark & Al are flabbergasted at how for the third time in under two years; the Nationals have been on the wrong end of a runner's interference call at first base. Josh Bell was called out to end the top of the 10th, costing the team a chance to take the lead. Was the right call made? Hear an exasperated Davey Martinez from his postgame press conference.(9:56) Luis Garcia had a very costly base running mistake in the top of the 10th as he was not able to score from second base on a Lane Thomas double. Why was he unable to score in that situation?(19:39) Keibert Ruiz had three hits on Monday and had 4 RBIs, including hits from both sides of the plate. Are we seeing him turn the corner with the bat?(24:41) Juan Soto reached base four times and had a single. He currently is hitting .315 and is one percentage point behind Trea Turner for the NL lead. Soto has now reached base four times in a game a staggering TWENTY TWO TIMES this season. Hear how his numbers stacks up post all star break against NL MVP front runner Bryce Harper.(31:15) Erick Fedde had a so so outing as he yielded three homers on the night. The bullpen did not have a good game, but Tanner Rainey stole the show in the 9th. He struck out the side and if you include AAA; he has struck out fifteen consecutive batters.(38:12) Josh Bell robbed a home run while playing left field. You are reading that last sentence correctly.

The Nats were blanked 6-0 by Colorado for a third straight defeat. Mark & Al begin with a lengthy discussion centering around Patrick Corbin; as the lefty's ERA rose back above 6.00. What are the team's options on how to handle Corbin in 2022? Does the organization as a whole need to alter things behind the scenes as it relates to pitching?(19:28) The bullpen threw five shutout innings on Saturday between Ryne Harper and Sean Nolin. Will Nolin's ability to eat innings benefit the ailing 'pen in the final few weeks?(21:52) Juan Soto had a double and his average is now at .315. He is in the midst of a very intriguing batting chase with ex teammates Trea Turner and Bryce Harper.
