With Christmas just a week away, I thought we would put a wishlist together for the 2023 Washington Nationals. Obviously we all want things like a World Series, or even just a competitive team, or a healthy Stephen Strasburg or Rookie of the Year Campaigns from all of our young core. However, I thought it best to keep this list to realistic moves that could, or at least should, happen. It’s also worth mentioning that improving the analytics and player development staff/department was high on this list, but it does seem as though the Nationals are attempting to improve those areas, so we will hold off for now.
With the way events have transpired since our 2019 World Series win, it’s possible nothing else on this list becomes a reality, but hey, what better time to be optimistic than during the Holidays!
