Hello baseball fans, and welcome back to another edition of The Rosterbatorical, the official MLB Daily Dish podcast. Chris and Matt are back again this week, with a major contract to talk about. That would be the seven-year, $175 million deal that the Nationals and pitcher Stephen Strasburg agreed to earlier this week.

Beyond the Nationals, this contract is going to have major impact across baseball, with other young pitchers in line for major deals and how this can imapct the Cubs ability to re-signed Jake Arrieta.

Then the guys get to talking about the Angels, who are having all sorts of problems. And both Matt and Chris appear to agree that the Angels should consider moving Mike Trout. It's a jam-packed episode filled with a ton of info and laughs, and Matt yelling at Chris for talking about pitcher wins.
