Did it start when they got rid of Eckstein or was he turning it around beforehand?

Read Boz's article today.
...Since Rick Schu arrived and the Nats trimmed their workaholic pre-game hitting habits, some self-inflicted hair-shirt drills, the Nats’ offense has led the National League in . . . everything.

...the Nats have only outscored the Dodgers and Cardinals by a tiny margin. But when your rotation begins with Stephen Strasburg, Gio Gonzalez and Jordan Zimmermann and your bullpen ends with Rafael Soriano (41 saves) and Tyler Clippard, you should be better than the 28-19 record the Nats have posted since their bat-rack spontaneously combusted.

Span has directly attributed his improvement to Schu's concentration on the basics of hitting.
