All-Star catcher Brian McCann is indeed leaving the National League East.
Heading into the 2013 season, all signs point to the Atlanta Braves as being the Nationals’ most formidable challenge for another N.L. East division championship.
As the Nationals move through the 2012 offseason with an apparent interest in signing an outfielder, they may face competition from some of their closest rivals.
The big free agent signings of the MLB offseason are likely weeks away, but it is probably a good idea for Nats fans to get used to hearing the name Michael Bourn.
