After going through the arduous process of drafting and signing Stephen Strasburg a year ago, Stan Kasten said he never wanted to hold the No. 1 pick again.
Well, Kasten and the Nationals can’t complain too much about that right now. If you’re going to post the majors’ worst record two years in a row, might as well make the best of it by drafting both the best pitching prospect and the best hitting prospect of their generation. The Nats will do just that on Monday when they (presumably) select Bryce Harper first in the country.
