Episode 110, FULL SHOW -- The Nationals return home this weekend after a successful West Coast road trip that saw the team win 5 of 9 games, including a series win in Los Angeles versus the almighty Dodgers. Grant & Tobi look back at the series that was, which featured and impressive start from Jake Irvin, and impressive outings on offense for CJ Abrams, Jesse Winker, and Luis Garcia Jr. Plus, is it a big deal that Manager Davey Martinez isn't letting Irvin pitch past 6 innings? And are you concerned about the usage of Relief Pitcher Hunter Harvey?; This weekend, the Nationals will celebrate the 5-year anniversary of winning the World Series. And while many former members of the 2019 roster are expected to return, details seem rather cloudy on whether the 2019 World Series MVP Stephen Strasburg will be in town. Grant & Tobi discuss the known details and how Strasburg's absence could affect the celebration; Nationals #21 Prospect Mitchell Parker made his Major League debut in Game 1 of the three-game series against the Dodgers, and left quite the impression, notching the first win for a Starting Pitcher making their debut for the Nationals since Stephen Strasburg's infamous debut in 2010. Grant & Tobi predict what Parker's contribution could be to the Nats going forward and look around the Minor League system at other notable performances from top 30 prospects.
