The Nationals’ all-time leaderboards

It’s Nostalgia Weekend here on the blog. If you missed it yesterday, we looked at the long list of guys who never played in the major leagues again after playing for the Nationals. Today we’re looking at the best of the best in Nats history.

Yes, it’s time to revisit the club’s all-time leaderboards.

Now that they’ve got 16 seasons under their belts, the Nationals have compiled enough history to make this exercise both informative and fun. There are a few highly recognizable names that keep showing up in each statistical category, but there are also a few surprise blasts from the past that still own a top-10 spot in one or two of the departments.

And for good measure, I’ve also included the lowest-ranked player in club history in the various rate categories (i.e., batting average, OPS, ERA). Apologies to those guys and their families for exposing their struggles in this manner, but it’s kind of fun to think about some of them as well.

Hope you enjoy this trip through the record book ...
