Time for a philosophical debate.
In the spirit of the season, if you are sitting on Santa’s lap or you get a visited by the baseball gods, and you were granted one wish for the next twenty years of Nats baseball, which of the following two choices would you pick? And why?
- Consistently good baseball, in contention every year, some success in the post-season, and perhaps a WS win or two.
- Boom and bust (see Phillies, Braves) with multiple WS trips and wins.
And yes, there are clearly lots of options in between. So feel free to suggest/discuss any others (e.g., getting to watch Bryce repeat 2015 for the next 10-15 years as a National for life).
It seems like Mike Rizzo and the Lerners are in for winning every year and many fans have a win now at (an almost) any expense mentality.
