On Sunday, the Nationals defeated the Mets, 23-5. On Saturday, they lost Adam Eaton for the season. It was a weekend of contrasts, and considering they actually lost the series Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale against the Mets, the outrageous score probably isn’t enough to pick them up. It was, overall, a bad weekend for Nationals baseball.
I’m here to pick them up. While no team can brush off the loss of a player as talented as Eaton and pretend they didn’t need him in the first place, the Nationals are still better than we thought. This is terrifying, considering they won 95 games and the National League East last year, even though they underperformed their Pythagorean record.
They’re even better now. And to prove I’m not overreacting to a single month of baseball, I’ll go through what’s convinced me that the Nationals aren’t just the team with the best record in baseball, but the team with the best roster in baseball.
In the Western Conference, the San Antonio Spurs had another typically excellent season with 61 wins, trying to make the NBA Finals for the first time in three years. The Houston Rockets were an offensive juggernaut, making an NBA-record 1,181 three-pointers this year, and had the third-best record in the NBA with 55 wins. Houston was led by a resurgent James Harden, who will face off with fellow MVP candidate Russell Westbrook — the first man to average a triple-double in 55 years — and the Oklahoma City Thunder in the first Cheap Nike Jerseys round.
