Washington sort of outplayed their projections to some extent. No one thought they would be an average team, but likewise, no one envisioned the run they got on heading to their World Series Title. Washington lost one of their most consistent and dependable hitters. That is always difficult to replace. There are a couple unknowns that are going to have to fill a void in offensive production.

How well these players mature will be critical. There are also a couple bats that the Nationals seem to be taking a chance on them returning to what has been spotty success. If Washington ends up having any major problem, it could be scoring runs. However, limiting the runs they give up should not be an issue. That should hold true at least through the first three slots in their projected rotation. After their key three starters, the Nationals could be putting a lot dependence on pitchers overachieving in back-to-back seasons.
