When it comes to this juncture of the 2014 season, the Nationals sure have good timing.
Despite Strasburg admitting to falling out of the game plan against the Phillies, Nats manager Matt Williams has been happy with Washington's pitching and hitting.
Early in Phillies spring training a common theme has emerged. For whatever reason, several of Philadelphia's pitchers have suffered shoulder injuries.
While the Nats are unlikely to sign free agent starter A.J. Burnett, he may still land in the National League East division.
Former top prospect Dominic Brown - once thought of as a four A player - finally emerged in 2013 as the power hitter everyone thought he could be.
