Could The Nationals Be Turning It Around?

Coming into 2015, the Washington Nationals were the one team that nearly everyone thought was going to make the playoffs. They were in a so called “weak” NL East division and they were far and away better than their divisional counterparts. Thus far in 2015, however, it has not been the Nationals team we expected at all. They went out and signed ace Max Scherzer and in the beginning...
