Washington Nationals: Why Their 'Big 3' Will Be All-Stars in 2012

The Washington Nationals are on track to send three of their five starting pitchers to Kansas City on July 10 to appear in the All-Star game.

The Nats have the best starting staff in baseball this season, led by Stephen Strasburg. Strasburg has been nothing short of brilliant in the early part of 2012.

Behind Strasburg is the former ace of the Oakland A's, Gio Gonzalez, followed by Jordan Zimmermann, a homegrown talent like Strasburg, rounding up the Nats' three-headed monster.

On paper, the Nats looked to have one of the best starting staffs in all of MLB before the season started. Oftentimes the potential of names and numbers on a sheet of paper is drastically different from the results that are produced on the baseball diamond.

For these three, however, the results exceed the predictions, as they are making their push for the All-Star team in every outing.
