Where could we get more offense?


The Nationals offense is offensive. It disgusts from a distance, with some of the worst team batting statistics in the majors, and it disgusts up close and personal when you actually watch games. Yet the Nationals claim to be locked in at every position, confident with a purported budding stars everywhere, begging the question, "How do we actually improve the Nats obviously AWFUL offense?"

As I see it, the Nationals are locked in at the following positions: Desmond at SS, Harper in LF/RF, Zim at 3B/1B, and Rendon at 3B in the future. That's it. Everyone else is a sub-championship offensive player (with the exception of Ramos, if he reaches his potential), and has to be looked at as a cog on a .500 team rather than a budding or past (in LaRoche and Werth's case) plus player. I've pined for the offense to be fixed via 2B, everyone says I'm an idiot and has good reasons, but now I ask what else can we do? Give up on Werth and get a real bat at a corner OF? Give up on Span, get a real bat, and make Span the new Bernadina? Give up on LaRoche? Where is the answer?!?

This roster doesn't have the offense we need. There needs to be another established bat injected into it. Yet Nats management and Nats fans are SO locked in on some of our players, I don't know if we're ready to call a spade a spade and move on. Espinosa to the minors was step #1 down the right path, and he had better not come back up unless he's ready to go on a tear or accept being less than an everyday player. What's step #2, because step #1 didn't help enough! And Bryce coming back is what will make us respectable again, but not champions- how do we improve this team's offensive offense?
