Nationals News: Don't Get Swept Edition

  The Nats are 0-2 in 2010. John Lannan and Jason Marquis have both had bad starts. But before you get too down on the Nats, please remember that they have been pitted against the NL Champion Phillies, one of the best teams in baseball, and the team with my pick for the 2010 NL Cy Young (Roy Halladay). They won't make the playoffs this year, but they'll still win 74 games.
