Uncustomed Heroes of 2015: Nationals
If this had been any other year, the Nationals would have rode all the way to the end of the year, gone a week or so into the playoffs and had themselves a day.
But it was 2015. So they had to go through a devastating downfall, and a defeat from behind by the Mets. I felt really bad for them, but sadly, this was not their best roster, and I think by the end they all knew it.
Meanwhile, Stephen Strasburg had another K-heavy season, which I don't think people had too much of a problem with. Hopefully he'll have more along the lines of the Cy Young season they'd been waiting for.
Ian Desmond, who's become one of the more consistent infielders had a bit of a down season, but still played well and hit decently. I'm not at all worried.
Coming Tomorrow- The Baltimore Orioles didn't get as far as they did in 2014, but they still had some pretty nice parts.
