This is something I did messing around in an attempt to very conservatively guestimate the Marlins 2006 revenue (used old revenue sharing, old ticket prices, etc.).  Note the total of revenue before a single ticket is sold - in the $60 million neighborhood.  In the past couple years, you can add revenue distributions from MLB.com and now the MLB network.  Based on this, my guess is that the Nats probably are presently in the $70 million range of revenue before the first ticket is sold.  (I don't know if the links still work - you can cut and paste them if you want to look them up)
