What does the future look like for baseball in DC? How many years removed are the Nationals from a playoff season?
I am surprised they are above .500 after a month into the season. I say within the next 3-4 years they will be a contender. NL East with the Phillies who have a good pitching and bats that can do damage it will be tough for the Nats to win the division outright. They would have to be a wild card team contending with the likes of the Cubs, Dodgers, and Giants.
It looks like the Nationals are for real! They currently hold second place in the NL East just behind the Phillies. And who ever heard of a club's relievers leading the league in wins (Tyler Clippard - 7) and saves (Matt Capps - 14)? Wait till Steve Strasburg is brought up!
They'll make the wildcard this year for sure. The have enough talent and finally found the right coaches.They need to have another setupman so clippard doesnt burn out in august and not rush strausburg! I hope they grab another 3rd basemen as well for backup eventhough kennedy plays 3rd.
I'll give them another year or so before they make it to the playoffs. The SF Giants, or Dodgers are tougher teams than the Nationals and should make the playoffs.

Best pitching team in baseball, maybe ever. Cooled the bats of Texas and Philly, and were really awesome.
