Whenever Opening Day is actually played, the MLB season finally back as part of our daily lives, the Washington Nationals have an ace up their sleeve. Actually, several.
MLB.com recently ranked the Top 10 rotations in baseball. The Nationals sat atop that list.

The 102 1/3 innings Washington got from its great rotation last October was the most by a World Series champion in a single postseason since the D-backs’ 120 1/3 innings in 2001. A group that can turn in that kind of workload is both a source of strength and concern, because it can catch up to you the following year.
