Via Bay Area Sports Guy, Here’s ex-Phillie, now-Giant Hunter Pence with the most succinct answer ever to the question What makes the Nationals a good team?:
REPORTER: Hunter, you’re familiar with the, um, Nationals, obviously, from being with the Phillies. What makes the Nationals such a good team?
HUNTER PENCE: Um…Pitching. And hitting. They’re good at those. [Reporters giggle] I’m sorry, that’s true. They’ve got great pitching and they can swing it, so that makes ‘em good.
