On this week's All-Star break edition of 'Baseball in the District,' Tim Murray of ESPN 980 and I welcomed in a very special guest. Nationals top prospect Lucas Giolito called in to talk about his experience at the MLB Futures Game in Minnesota, as well as his 2014 season with the Hagerstown Suns.

Giolito was great on his development as a professional pitcher, what it was like to pitch in front of 40,000 people for the first time, as well as how the Nationals are handling his innings limit and workload this season. Giolito also talked about his favorite things to do on off-days in Hagerstown and on bus strips to other South Atlantic League stadiums.

After Giolito, Tim and I brought in Rob Carlin, host of Comcast SportsNet's 'The Baseball Show.' Rob shared his insight on the All-Star Game and what he expects from the Nats in the second half.
