THIS WEEK’S DEBATE: SHOULD THE NATS ENTER 2015 WITH DREW STOREN AS CLOSER, OR SHOULD THEY LOOK ELSEWHERE? MARK ZUCKERMAN: I understand why we’re having this discussion, but I do think it’s a bit unfair to suggest the Nationals need a new closer. The argument for change essentially boils down to Storen’s performance in two…

THIS WEEK’S DEBATE: WILL THE NATS ULTIMATELY REGRET RYAN ZIMMERMAN’S CONTRACT EXTENSION? MARK ZUCKERMAN: The easy answer at this moment is to say that yes, they will regret it.

THIS WEEK’S DEBATE: WOULD YOU GIVE JAYSON WERTH A 4-YEAR, $83 MILLION CONTRACT THIS WINTER, IF HE WAS ON THE OPEN MARKET? MARK ZUCKERMAN: Now here’s an interesting subject. If you take Werth’s 7-year, $126 million contract with the Nationals and remove the terms of the first three years of the deal (which he has…

THIS WEEK’S DEBATE: SHOULD THE NATIONALS MAKE DANNY ESPINOSA THEIR UTILITY INFIELDER, OR SHOULD THEY LOOK ELSEWHERE TO FILL THAT POSITION? MARK ZUCKERMAN: This may be the unpopular answer, but I say the Nationals absolutely should give Espinosa a shot here. To me, the most important trait for a utility infielder is defense. And you…
