One of my favorite sports debates in terms of this player vs. that player is the one that centers around two of the best shortstops in baseball history.
And so the time is near. Technically, the 2014 Major League Baseball season already began last weekend when the Dodgers twice beat the Diamondbacks in Australia.
Despite falling short of the playoffs in 2013, the Washington Nationals saw their franchise value go up by about $70 million over the course of the last year.
The Nationals made a minor trade on Saturday night, acquiring infielder Brandon Laird from the Kansas City Royals.
