One of the Washington Nationals rattled off all the great stuff that has been going on with the team the past couple of months. Anthony Rendon has played like an MVP candidate. Juan Soto did what so many very young players struggle to do by shaking off a sophomore slump, and he has been savage. Max Scherzer, Stephen Strasburg and Patrick Corbin have pitched great. Washington has been playing at a 110-win pace over the past third of the season.
