The Washington Nationals were predicted to have a great season in 2015. That isn't what has been happening so far though, the Nationals will need a miracle to make it into the playoffs this year.
Last night the Nationals pulled out an extra innings win over the feisty Philadelphia Phillies. Jayson Werth practically won the game for the Nationals going deep twice on a night when Jonathan Papelbon got his first blown save of the season.
What went wrong with this Washington Nationals team?
It may mean that this group just does not go well together as they have been predicted to do well for several years now. Anything less than a playoff appearance has to be looked at as a failure by this team.
The Nationals seem like they were built to win for this year but this could be a group of players that are very much individuals instead of the team mentality.
