And possibly expand into the Asian market. I hear they play baseball over there, but from how many Asians the Nats have signed, maybe they don't play the game over there after all... I guess the Nats know best where Asian players are concerned, he said with a very sarcastic tone.

I would love to see them start expanding into the Asian market.  Apparently they have scouts over there, but there has been very little activity we have heard about.  The Cubs have been signing players straight out of high school in Korea for the last few years and have an excellent SS prospect in Hak-Ju Lee that they signed in 2008.  It would be awesome if the Nationals could follow their example.  Part of the problem could be economic, as in most cases signing Asian prospects is more expensive than signing Dominican or Venezuelan prospects.
