You’ll Have Plenty of Chances to See the Nationals Do Their Thing This Season
OK, last year was a disappointment. But come on, this is a Washington, D.C., sports team we’re talking about.
Still, the Washington Nationals wound up in second place in the National League East with an 86-76 record, four games off a wild-card berth. And this, of course, after the team roared into the playoffs with a Major League Baseball-best record of 98-64 in 2012, auguring hoped-for good times last year.
Come to think of it though, that collapse in Game 5 of that year’s National League Division Series may’ve augured a different fortune.
Well, at least they didn’t stink.
But hey, that’s so 2013. It’s 2014 the last time I checked. Bleacher Report has the Nationals winning the NL East again. So it appears the team will at least contend.

Nationals Park is located in the Capitol Riverfront (or just outside it, according to Google maps) neighborhood in Southeast, right next to the Navy Yard-Ballpark station on the Metrorail’s Green Line.
