The Washington Nationals were expected to be the team to beat in the National League this season, but things have not panned out that way. They find themselves off to a 34-36 record while sitting in third place, seven games back in the NL East.
After a blazing hot start, Bryce Harper cooled off and eventually ended up on the disabled list. Meanwhile, Stephen Strasburg has gotten off to a 3-6 start and also has spent time on the DL.
However, do these injuries justify calling Strasburg and Harper disappointments so far this season?
What about more conventional, clean-cut disappointments, such as the season Danny Espinosa had put together before landing on the DL? Despite spending time on the DL, his struggles were well established before any injuries started to dominate his season.
Where do these guys rank in the Nats' top disappointments this season?
