He still rolls his eyes at the term, but Ryan Zimmerman remains the face of the Nationals. Nothing else about the franchise has been as steadfast since the team arrived in the District in 2005 than the man who has occupied third base for almost a decade.

Just days before pitchers and catchers are set to report, Rizzo issued a 'State of the Nationals' address to fans via the team's website.
general manager Mike Rizzo noted that the Nationals have needed their fourth outfielder to start roughly 80 games each of the last three seasons.
"We felt that the prudent thing to do was just to be to put him on the 60-day DL," Rizzo said. "Allow him to take his time, because it's probably going to be 6-to-8 weeks before he gets rolling anyway."
