Things that might happen to the Nats

2015 nats

The Nats are favored to win the world series this year. In order for that to happen, the key is Ryan Zimmerman cannot get hurt. If Zimmerman does get hurt, Tyler Moore will have to play first base.

Other things to watch for:

  • The Nationals might need to get rid of Ian Desmond because he will be a free agent next year.
  • If the Nats do get rid of Desmond they should get either a second baseman or shortstop. Escobar will fill into the remaining role.
  • Jayson Werth will be ready for opening day.
