Some prospects, yes
The actual team record, no
Same for me. In other words I follow the minor leagues only to the extent it is likely to affect the major league club (Nats) in the short to mid term.
Minor league baseball is a ton of fun though. Cheap and a good activity for groups of friends or families. If I lived in a city with a minor league team I would go and support that team, regardless of its big league affiliate.
