Note, also, the Nats depth:
- OF can be almost any combination of Werth, Harper, Morse, Bernadina, Moore, Lombo
- 1B: LaRoche, Morse, Moore. (LaR is a great fielder, Morse very good)
- MI: Desmond, Espi, Lombo
Ryan Z is probably the only irreplaceable guy in the lineup.
I don't think the Braves are that deep. They have a core of fine hitters balanced with Uggla and their SS. The OF starters are terrific, both hitting and fielding, but I can't remember anyone beyond Prado/Bourne/Heyward.
(Ron Darling might have mentioned it also, but this Nats team is more like the '86 Mets than any team I can think of. And the 2012 Nats are better than the '86 Mets...but that's a different discussion.)
