The Nationals are getting some much-needed rest this week, but they'll have to be ready to go immediately once the All-Star break ends on Friday.

From then until July 31 the Nats, who currently hold one of the two National League wild-card spots, play against several playoff contenders, including the rival Phillies, NL East-leading Braves, Rockies, and Dodgers. 

RADIO.com Sports insider and former MLB manager Joe Girardi chatted with The Sports Junkies Wednesday about what the Nationals need to do to navigate this tough stretch.
