"Nationals: What happens when a stars-and-scrubs approach, through attrition, becomes a star-and-scrubs approach? Juan Soto might be more valuable than any two of his teammates combined in 2022. If he’s not, though, the Nationals get very interesting. There’s an awful lot of high-variance talent here in Stephen Strasburg and Keibert Ruiz and Victor Robles and Carter Kieboom and Josiah Gray. You could sell me on everything from 70 to 86 wins...but I need to see more from Mike Rizzo than just Cesar Hernandez."
