Sometimes when teams get good they have to let good players go. The 2007 Philadelphia Phillies, for instance, had Michael Bourn and Kyle Lohse on their roster and neither were major contributors.
Technically speaking, the baseball offseason began the moment the San Francisco Giants wrapped up a four-game whitewashing of the Detroit Tigers in the World Series. That was 29 days ago.
Already over a month into their offseason, the Nationals haven't given many answers or even signs as to their plan for 2013. Will they re-sign Adam LaRoche?
Everyone has something to be thankful for today, and that includes the Nationals roster, coaching staff and front office.
