Here's your chance to nominate the best defensive plays from the Washington Nationals' 2014 campaign? Will anyone beat out Steven Souza? Did Anthony Rendon or Ian Desmond or maybe Asdrubal Cabrera outdo Souza? Nominate your favorite...

We've already posted the first two polls to choose the "Funniest moment" from your Washington Nationals' 2014 campaign and the "Most Regrettable Moment" of the season, but for the third installment, in which we'll be choosing the "Best Defensive" play of the year, we figured we'd directly solicit your ideas.

So you recommend the best defensive plays of the year for the Nationals and we'll put them in the post tomorrow with a poll so that we as a community can choose the best one. Make sense? Is there any chance that Steven Souza's no-hitter saving, game-ending catch for the 27th out of Jordan Zimmermann's no-hitter in Game 162 can be beat?

"He kind of rolled on the ball and I didn't really know what happened. And then he lifts his glove up so I knew that he had it." -Jordan Zimmermann on Steven Souza's no-hitter-saving catch

Can you think of a better defensive play from this past season? There's a play or two by Asdrubal Cabrera that stick out in my mind. Ian Desmond showed off his range and arm a few times. Anthony Rendon had some web-gem-y plays at third base. I remember capturing a few catches in the outfield by Jayson Werth that were impressive... but now I feel like I'm forcing ideas on you and this is about you, the reader/voter nominating plays...

So what you got? While we're waiting for ideas... why not take another look at Steven Souza's catch, not to like influence your voting or anything, but just because it's super-fun to watch...

Here are a few of our favorites that we captured on Twitter/Vine, not to like, in any way influence your votes...

Jayson Werth might bite his tongue off one day...

Sure it was a catcher running, but Desmond showed of his arm here:
