Episode 111, FULL SHOW -- The Nationals take another series as they win the final 2 games of the weekend versus the Houston Astros. But the story of Sunday's victory was an impressive performance from the Nationals #21 Prospect LHP Mitchell Parker in just his 2nd career start. Grant Paulsen & Tobi Altizer take a look at what worked for Parker that led to an efficient 7 inning outing where he held the Astros scoreless and struck out 8; CJ Abrams continues to be the catalyst for the Nats offense, hitting another Homerun over the weekend, and continuing to rack up extra base hits during his current hit streak. Is it too early to start projecting a higher ceiling for the 23 year old Shortstop? Later, Grant & Tobi discuss how Luis Garcia Jr continues to impress, Joey Meneses breaking out of his hitting slump, and recap the weekend that was at Nationals Park as the team and fans celebrated the 5 year anniversary of the 2019 World Series team; Grant & Tobi take a quick look at some of the recent performances from Top Prospects for the Nationals in the Minor League System, including why they're concerned about former Top 5 Draft Pick OF Elijah Green. Plus, Grant & Tobi try to figure out if there's room OF James Wood to potentially make a debut in the next few weeks, or if the Nationals want to stick with what's working after winning 3 of their last 4 series.
