In Sunday’s newspaper, you’ll find our eight-page special preview section looking ahead to the Nationals‘ 2014 season, which begins Monday. Our theme this season was the manager. What are the roles of the modern manager compared to the past? As a result, what challenges does new Nationals Manager Matt Williams face?
Colleague Adam Kilgore tackled those questions in an interesting cover story and columnist Thomas Boswell did so in a comprehensive column that only he can provide. Make sure to pick up a copy of the newspaper — or you can just subscribe — to read everything about the Nationals before their much-anticipated season begins.
Here are all the links to all the content in the special section:
