Washington Nationals Details
The Nationals’ franchise has been in existence since 1969, but it’s only been in Washington, D.C. since 2005, when the Montreal Expos relocated to the nation’s capital and changed their name. The Nationals, who play their home games in Nationals Park, have had plenty of success since moving, winning division titles in 2012, 2014 and 2016. There’s more work to be done, though: The franchise, dating back to its Montreal years, has never won a pennant or a World Series.
That could change sooner rather than later with this uber-talented team. Led by manager Dusty Baker, the reigning National League East champions can beat you in any number of ways. Bryce Harper and Daniel Murphy form a fearsome 3-4 punch in the middle of the lineup, and newcomer Adam Eaton should make the lineup even deeper. Trea Turner, just 23, batted .342, stole 33 bases, and hit 13 home runs in 2016 and projects to be a star in D.C. for years to come. Veterans Jayson Werth and Ryan Zimmerman may be past their primes, but they remain dangerous, clutch hitters. Four-time All-Star and two-time Cy Young Award winner Max Scherzer is the ace off the pitching staff. Always a threat to rack up double-digit strikeouts, he’s one of the hardest pitchers in the majors to score off. Behind him in the rotation is Stephen Strasburg, who would be an ace in most rotations around the league. Gio Gonzalez, Tanner Roark and Joe Ross, all of whom are dependable innings eaters, fill out the starting five.
