The Offishial Show Episode 121: Kahlil Watson Reaction & First-Half Marlins Awards

A consensus top-eight MLB Draft prospect falls to the Marlins at No. 16, plus a segment recognizing notable (good and bad) major league performances so far this season.

If you thought the Marlins picking in the middle of the first round would be boring, think again. Ely Sussman provides a quick primer on “explosive” prep shortstop Kahlil Watson (2:00) who improbably fell to Miami with the 16th overall pick of the MLB Draft. Then, Fish Stripes selects award winners from the pre-All-Star break portion of the 2021 season (13:00), including Trevor Rogers, Jazz Chisholm Jr. and Anthony Bass (yes, really).

Enjoy Episode 121!
