2015 was a disaster for the Washington Nationals and a season that they are hoping to put behind them. With a new skipper in Dusty Baker and a very talented roster, this team hopes to fulfill the lofty expectations that were set for them before last season which includes a trip to the World Series.
You will not find many deadlier pitching one-two punches in baseball than Max Scherzer and Stephen Strasburg. Both are set for historic seasons for the Nationals barring injury. Gio Gonzalez had a down year in 2015 and will need to bounce back to make up for the departure of Jordan Zimmerman who was lost in free agency. In the bullpen, Jonathan Papelbon will remain the closer but Washington will be without the services of Drew Storen who was dealt to Toronto for outfielder Ben Revere. Felipe Rivero returns as the lefty setup man along with newcomers Yusmiero Petit, Oliver Perez and Shawn Kelley. Right fielder Bryce Harper is arguably the best (or second best) player in baseball with 42 home runs and 118 runs scored in 2015. He will be joined by Revere at center
and Jayson Werth in left field. The middle infield will be manned by Daniel Murphy at second base with Danny Espinosa getting the bulk of play at shortstop. That is until prospect Trea Turner is ready for the majors by midseason. Behind the plate, Washington is hoping they can get a full season out of Wilson Ramos who has been up and down but his defensive skills are always solid.
The Nationals will be flying a bit under the radar this year after the hype machine before the 2015 season. They have mostly the same roster that was touted as World Series contenders last year headed by two pitching aces and a hall of fame hitter in Harper. They will have the Mets to contend with in the NL East but should have no problem obtaining a Wild Card berth barring major injuries to the roster. Fans come out and support this talented club and purchase your Washington Nationals tickets this summer. Grab a hot dog, some popcorn and enjoy the crack of the bat as you take in all the games live and in person.
