Washington Nationals Stats & Team History

The Washington Nationals were initially founded as the Montreal Expos in 1969 as part of a new four-team expansion into the MLB. In 2004, due to financial reasons, the MLB purchased the Expos and relocated the team to Washington DC, playing their first season as the Nationals in 2005. While they were Expos, the franchise suffered, only making the playoffs once in 35 years and never making it to the World Series. The team had its best chance to make a playoff run in 1994, but the strike ended the season early with no World Series being played.  The Expos were a Major League-best 74-40. 

The Nationals team stats suffered at the start, but from 2012 to 2019, the Nationals made the playoffs five times and won the World Series in 2019.

Due to the Washington Nationals teams’ stats, they got back-to-back first overall selections in 2009 and 2010. They drafted Stephen Strasburg and Bryce Harper, respectively. While both played a big part in the mid to late 2010s playoff runs, Harper was not on the team when they finally won in 2019, while Strasburg was named MVP of the World Series.
