Some of the members of our staff wrote about what Washington Nationals’ fans should be thankful for.

With today being Thanksgiving, it is a good time to sit down with your family and friends, have some turkey with some side dishes, and watch some football. When I’m with my family, one of the things we do before we eat is go around the table and say what we are thankful for.

This season, the Washington Nationals had a disappointing year as they failed to live up to the lofty expectations. However, despite this year’s bad season, there are many things to be thankful for. For one, be thankful that the organization just finished its 10th season and that the Washington D.C. area has a baseball team to root for.

More from Max Scherzer

Whether it was the play of some top stars in the game such as NL MVP Bryce Harper or ace Max Scherzer, the Nats did have some players who fans should be happy to watch for years to come. However, they did acquire a proverbial “turkey” at the trade deadline last July when they traded for Jonathan Papelbon. Plus, there in a division that still looks winnable in 2016, despite the Mets making it all the way to the World Series this year.

With that being said, some of our writers, including myself, wrote about what they are the most thankful for. We at District On Deck are thankful that you choose to read our work every day of the year and we thank you for your support.
