In today’s newspaper, Thomas Boswell wrote about possible breakout players for the Nats this season. In the column he says Michael Morse, Ross Detwiler, Jordan Zimmermann and Danny Espinosa could be the kind of hidden stars needed for winning teams.
Boswell has an obvious favorite:
I’m in the tank for Espinosa. I have to muzzle myself. Just wait and watch. If you haven’t seen the “Ridiculous Bazooka Arm” clip on the Internet, do so immediately.
Will he strike out? Yes. Do you care? No. This guy is going to hit 15 to 20 homers someday and keep you from going to the “Five Guys” line for years whenever the Nats are in the field. He’s a price-of-admission talent.
How about you? Who do you think will be the Nats’ secret star?
