The Washington Nationals are off to a roaring start in 2012 and their dominance can not be narrowed down to one single player. Their success is truly a team effort and each player has contributed in one way or another.
Although most of the players have helped the team, others have been slumping and can improve upon their production to make the Nats even better.
Bryce Harper's impact on the team is felt in his production on the field (that can be quantified) as well as off the field. His call-up alone gave the team a boost that they needed when the club was burdened by injury.
Adam LaRoche has been extremely efficient and is one of the best hitters in the lineup this season. That is the kind of production that will lead the Nats to further success this year.
Let's take a look at the hitters that the Nats have put in their lineup and the most important stats that they have compiled thus far.
