Jon Heyman Appears to Be the Only Man on Earth Who Thinks the Washington Nationals Will Win the NL East

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.

Because you want to see it first!
