Who are Nats' all-time stat leaders?

Who are Nats' all-time stat leaders?

With each passing year, the Nationals begin to establish more and more of their own identity. When they first arrived in town in 2005, they were still the relocated Montreal Expos. Now that seven full seasons have elapsed, though, the franchise's history has become less about its previous home in Canada and more about its current home in Washington.

And one of the benefits of that longevity is the ability to compile statistical leaderboards in an array of categories. I first compiled such lists during the final month of the 2010 season, and I've been meaning to update those lists this winter but had yet to get around to it.

So with some help from the fabulous Play Index on baseball-reference.com, I present the new and updated all-time Nationals stat leaders. WARNING: Reading these lists will elicit a wide range of emotions, from smiles to frowns to laughter to tears to sheer dumbfoundedness (and yes, I know that's not a real word, but trust me, it will apply to a few of these names)...
