The Washington Post

The Post’s Nationals preview section


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:

●  Williams is learning that filling out the lineup card is just the beginning, Kilgore writes

●  Inside the game, most think the manager can make a big difference, Boswell writes

Capsules on every starting position player and starter, by yours truly

● Who are the Nationals coaches and what do they do?, by yours truly

● Previews of every team in baseball and predictions for each league, by Barry Svrluga

Also in Sunday’s paper, Svrluga has the a debut story in his 162 series on Ryan Zimmerman and how he prepares for the grind of the long season. Also from the weekend’s papers, how catcher Wilson Ramos trained his legs in the offseason for what he hopes will be his healthiest season yet.
