Other teams will gladly let the Nationals handicap themselves.
The future isn't promised... so when you have the chance... go for it.
We all know next years pitching staff won't be as good as this year... so we'll be hoping for an uptick in offense to keep the club at the level it's at this year.
Sometimes your first shot, really is your best shot at winning it all.
We are building a perennial contender here. No reason to panic over this year.
Next year's staff will be better because of the continuing maturation of the top three starters.
And the offense will be better because of the development of Harper.
