The Washington Nationals entered the offseason with less pressure than any other team in the majors after winning their first World Series title in franchise history. But that doesn't mean they have short winter shopping list.
The Nationals lost a slew of contributors to free agency, highlighted by World Series MVP Stephen Strasburg and NL MVP candidate Anthony Rendon. They also have holes to fill at first and second base in addition to needing upgrades on the bench and in the bullpen.
At the Winter Meetings, President of Baseball Operations Mike Rizzo will be in close proximity of every agent and general manager in the sport for four days. NBC Sports Washington's Chase Hughes, Travis Thomas and Tim Shovers will be in studio while Nationals Insider Todd Dybas will be live from Winter Meetings in San Diego providing up-to-the-minute news and analysis.
