The Nationals are on ESPN2 on Wednesday night. They’re on ESPN Sunday night. Bryce Harper and Stephen Strasburg ensure that they’re a regular topic on ESPN radio. And being in first place ensures that they’re discussed at length during the highlight shows.

All of which led to the above moment from Baseball Tonight this week, which several readers referred me to.

“We’re all Nats all the time,” John Kruk noted in the segment, seen above, thanks to ESPN’s PR folks.

“We are the Nat Network right now,” Karl Ravech agreed.

“We should be. They’re very good,” Mark Mulder said.

“N stands for Nats,” Ravech concluded.

These are things that have never before been said about the Nationals.
