And what about Jordan Zimmerman, Ian Dezmond, Gio, Danny Espinoza, Drew Storen, Ross Detwiler?
Did they get lucky on that?
"Like you're talking about strasburg and harper... "
I still have no idea what you are referring to.
"You forget that the Nationals spent 5 years at the bottom of the division without making any real attempt to be competitive. It helped that they were absolutely abysmal when the best pitching and hitting prospect of a generation were about to enter the draft. "
Why people ignore that is beyond me.
And as some people say about "no-brainer" moves, grabbing Strasburg was about a no-brainer as it gets.
Was Werth the first big signing they made?
"Outside of trading for Soriano, I believe so. "
I thought so.
So other than their first year when they managed to finish .500, they've been bad and worse than bad every year up to 2012.
If people think the Nats are such a brilliant organization, why'd it take so long to get good?
