National League


Remember that 2010 Wimbledon match between John Isner and Nicolas Mahut? You know the one that went 11 hours and five minutes over three days on the grass court.


From April through September, there was no better team in baseball than the Nationals when it came to starting pitching.


Though there was legitimate optimism surrounding the Nationals when this season began, it took some time before the city fully bought into the notion this team could win big in 2012.
