Washington Nationals in 2014?
Things didn't go according to plan for the Washington Nationals in 2013. Expected to be one of the best teams in the majors, the Nats struggled so much early that their late playoff push fell short. But it's hard to deny the talent in the nation's capital, with Stephen Strasburg -- who shined in his spring debut Tuesday -- and Jordan Zimmermann leading the rotation and Bryce Harper and Jayson Werth among the team's impressive hitters. Will Washington stay healthy and bounce back under new manager Matt Williams?
Can Nationals make the playoffs?
Remember a few days ago, when the National League playoff picture was all but set -- at least in terms of which five teams would vie for the pennant? Not anymore. The Washington Nationals are soaring, winners of 10 of 11 after their valiant two-game sweep of the Atlanta Braves a day after tragedy struck the nation's capital. The team still sits 4.5 games behind the Cincinnati Reds in the race for the second wild-card spot. But with the kind of talent on the Nats, would it be that surprising if the final 11 games delivered joy to D.C.?
