The Nats should be grateful that the Mets squandered an opportunity to bury them this past weekend. That and more on this week's Around the NL East.
With their season teetering on the brink, the Nationals need somebody to step forward and take ownership of the situation, leading the way into September and October.
The Nationals are in disarray, but they do have one of their best players on the road back in Denard Span.
The Nationals are playing their worst baseball in years, but they are still well within reach of winning the NL East. Amazing, isn't it?
