2017 RECAP

Record: 97 - 65

Last Season’s Fantasy Highlights

Ian Desmond enjoyed his third straight 20 homer/20 stolen base season while Anthony Rendon fell three swipes shy of his first. Stephen Strasburg surpassed 200 innings for the first time, finishing with 215 stanzas. Drew Storen reclaimed the closer role he lost, perhaps unfairly, in 2012.

What Has Changed?

Adam LaRoche has left for the south side of Chicago with Ryan Zimmerman Expected to pick up the power slack at first base. Tyler Clippard was traded to Oakland for Yunel Escobar who will slide over and play second. There was something else. Oh yeah, Max Scherzer was signed too.

What to Expect:

With the caveat the Nationals may not be done dealing, the club is definitely all-in for 2015. The pitching, even if they move Jordan Zimmermann, Doug Fister or Strasburg will be fine. The questions are with the sticks. Can Zimmerman stay healthy and if so, will he be productive? How long will Jayson Werth be out and how much is left in the tank when he returns? Is this the season Bryce Harper put it together? Does Anthony Rendon continue to improve or does he regress a bit? Gun-to-head, the key is Harper. The kid was born to be in the spotlight and should finally live up to the hype – well, most of it anyway.

This Year’s Surprise:

Amid all the big names and superstars, Wilson Ramos quietly stays healthy and knocks 25 long balls out of the park.
