Nationals Winning Early

I know it’s early in the season, but the Nationals:

  • Have a record of 9-3
  • Are in first place in the NL East
  • Have the third best record in the majors
  • Rank fifth in the NL in batting average and third in on base percentage
  • Lead the MLB in ERA at 1.91, 19% better than the second best team
  • Lead the majors with 117 strikeouts, prompting me to get a sweet “K Street” T Shirt
  • Lead the MLB in opponents’ batting average at .191
  • Starting rotation has gone 5-1 with a MLB leading 1.69 ERA, 31% better than 2nd place
  • Face the 4-7 Astros, 5-6 Marlins, and 3-9 Padres for the next 8 games
  • Have not been this many games above .500 since September 2005.
