It’s a prospect heavy show as we talk about the ascension of Bryce Harper and Mike Trout to the big leagues, delve in to the top of the Rays and Padres systems, and discuss what scouts are saying about Red’s burner Billy Hamilton and Seattle lefty Danny Hutzen. Our special guest is Adam Kilgore, the Nationals beat writer for the Washington Post, and we talk Harper, the rotation and the sustainability of the team’s hot start. Then it’s the goofy stuff and somehow we talked about soccer for 15 minutes. As always, we hope you enjoy.
