Nationals are doing what the Rockies/Phillies should be doing.

Building around your best player. Making your team better when you are in a window to go to the postseason. Incredibly envious as a Rockies fan right now.

I mean, are they doing that? They added Josh Bell, which is a decent pickup I guess, but besides that what have they done in building?

I believe so. Shwarbs can get you 35+ HRs and if Bell can get back to where he was a couple years ago, that's two cheap additions who can do some serious damage in your 5-6 hole.
