Although they were a preseason favorite to win the World Series, the Washington Nationals rarely looked like a serious contender in 2013. Here’s a quick look at some of the problems that derailed their season.
With well over a century of professional sports, Washington D.C. has seen its share of all-time greats and legends. Here’s a short, and easily debatable, list of the top ten athletes in Washington history.
When the Washington Nationals signed Dan Haren in the offseason, they hoped he could be the final piece of an already strong starting rotation. Instead, he’s been one of the worst starters in the league and hasn’t looked any better this month.
The Washington Nationals have had great success in the draft, landing Bryce Harper, Stephen Starsburg and Ryan Zimmerman in the first-round, but that doesn’t mean they haven’t had a few first-round busts along the way.
With only nine seasons in the league, the Washington Nationals haven't had too much time to build a list of free agency busts, but they've still had a few fumbles, a couple meltdowns, and one potential disaster.
With hitters ahead of him struggling to get on base, Bryce Harper isn’t getting many chances to drive runners home. If the the Nationals are serious about contending, they need to find a way to generate opportunities for their young star.
