This week’s episode of ‘Baseball in the District’ featured three different guests for the very first time. The first was Nats outfielder Michael Taylor, the second was Kevin McAlpin from the Braves radio network and the third was WTOP’s Ben Raby.

Taylor talked with Tim Murray about his memorable debut on Tuesday night in an interview that also played on ESPN 980. McAlpin tried to explain the Braves’ recent slide and why they somehow only seem to beat the Nationals. And Raby looked back at the 1994 Expos, as the 20th anniversary of the strike shortened season just passed.

Before bringing in our guests, Tim and I discussed Taylor’s potential impact on the Nats moving forward. In between guests we also made predictions for who will be called up in September and talked Doug Fister’s dominance this season.

    By the way, if anyone pays to park down by Nationals Park, you can use this site and buy parking (you can print or send to your phone); just search for Nationals Park under “find parking”. You’ll get $5 off with this link (https://www.parkingpanda.com/invite/thomascost)

      Purely in the interests of disclosure, since I live a few green line stops from the park, but from the link, I’m guessing there might be something in it for you? Just wondering.

        Yes, we both get $5 off with it. Win, win.
