THE NatsGM Show #91 – Special Guest Nick J. Faleris

THE NatsGM Show returns with Episode #91 and we are proud to welcome back one of our favorite guests, Nick J. Faleris from 2080Baseball.com.

This week Nick and I heavily dissect the Washington Nationals farm system.  Our conversation begins by discussing the Adam Eaton trade and specifically the prospects lost to the White Sox.  Next Nick shares his thoughts on the top picks from the 2016 Draft, namely Carter Kieboom, Sheldon Neuse, Jesus Luzardo and Nick Banks.  Then we change course and discuss Washington’s top prospects Victor Robles, Juan Soto, Wilmer Difo and Erick Fedde.  Finally, I completely change course to ask Nick his “elevator pitch” of the top prospects in this upcoming June draft.

I want to thank Nick for graciously joining us and providing his evaluations on the Nationals’ system.  Thanks for listening!
