No Phillies. No Marlins. The Nationals. It felt like one of those, “look at me, I’m going to make a wacky prediction and hope for the best” moments. Did Scott Boras – the agent who probably has half a dozen clients on Washington – put him up to this?
The lowly Nationals, since joining MLB in 2005, have never finished over .500 (finished 81-81 in 2005, then 80-82 in 2011). They’re still a couple years away.
Through opening day (well, all four or five of them – I’ve lost track how many MLB had), Heyman seems pretty happy with his pick.
