Dugout Digest – welcome to Nationals Day

Welcome to season preview day four. Today, we'll be looking at one of the most disappointing teams of 2013, the Washington Nationals. After a fantastic 2012, Washington struggled in 2013, finishing in second place in the NL East, well out of the playoff picture. But Washington improved once again this winter, and are poised to battle the Braves for the NL East crown.

Wednesday was Mets Day at TOC, and here's your recap.

In addition to all of the Mets previews, we had several other news posts yesterday, including the impending retirement of Derek Jeter, A.J. Burnett signing with the Phillies, and Yankees manager Joe Girardi's willingness to accept a gay player in the Yankees clubhouse.

Enjoy your rapidly dwindling offseason, everyone.
