The 2022 edition of the Washington Nationals is not good enough to compete for anything.
Most analysts, even nationals, probably know that going season, has lost so much talent in the last three years (after winning the World Series).
Their offense is moderate: they are 16th in the MLB (out of 30 teams) with 168 runs; And they are 26th, 27th in home runs.
This number is a sad reflection of the talent level of their hitters, especially when we compare it to the individual home run leaders of the season.
New York Yankees slugger Aaron Judge, determined to have a career year to cash in on free agency, already has 17 home runs.
The Washington Nationals have 26. https://t.co/ct3HPyHI8V

The two judges will surpass the current Nats homer’s total of seven.
Yes, the judge is on a level of his own this year, but the nationals Homer Tally is extremely disappointing.
2022 Nationals is an inspirational unit
They have Juan Soto and Nelson Cruz (who have not had a great year), but after these two, there is no energy threat to speak in that lineup.
The 14-29 national team is one of the worst teams in the league, and Soto has nothing to do with it.
He needs some help, but his current supporters aren’t getting it from the cast.
Soto himself is not having a bad year (eight home runs and a .381 OBP) but he is expanding the area a bit, perhaps interested in doing it himself.
With the exception of Josh Bell and Yadiel Hernandez Soto, only the offense was comfortable on average.
Not too much.
Let’s see if the judge can catch the National Homer Total by June.
Aside from all the fun, the Nationals may have their worst season in recent memory.
