4. Washington Nationals
It’s April 2018, and people still don’t know how to get Bryce Harper out, oh and by the way, he’s in a contract year.
The 2016 NL MVP is back and at full strength, and he’s got the stats to show for it. Harper is currently the home run leader in all of baseball with four homers.
Harper could command more than $400 million this offseason, but let’s stay on topic with this Nationals team.
It’s not only Harper that makes this Nats squad must-watch television, there’s so much more to see with this squad.
Adam Eaton has returned with vengeance and it doesn’t stop there. Eight players on the Nats already have hit homers, just a few games into the season.
Washington leads the NL in homers, and they’re equipped with that two-headed monster in Stephen Strasbourg and Max Scherzer at the top of their rotation.
Scherzer and Strasbourg are both coming off career years, as they feasted off the weak National League East competition.
With the NL East not getting any better, there could quite a few in-game home run derby’s in the nation’s capital.
The Nationals won’t be very fun to play against. However, they’re entertaining to watch.
