Nationals GM says they are better than the Braves, exactly one year after Espinosa said the same thing

Brad Mills-USA TODAY Sports

Once again, the Nationals feel the need to say they are better... How about just going out and being better then?

Exactly one year to the date after Stephen Strasburg and Danny Espinosa stated that they think they are better than the Braves, the general manager of the team came out and said the same thing.

Here are a few quotes from last year:

"They’re good, I don’t think they’re better than us," Danny Espinosa said. "They’re a good ballclub, they have talent. They’re hot right now, they only lost one game, but they’re hot. It all evens out."
"Honestly, I think our lineup’s better," Strasburg said. "They’re hot right now. It’s early and it’s not about how many wins you necessarily finish up with in April, it’s how many you have at the end of the year."

They are correct, it's about how many you have at the end of the year. The Braves had 96 and the Nats failed to make the playoffs. Here is Rizzo's quote from earlier today;

Now, of course Rizzo thinks they are better; he built the team. He has no reason not to have confidence in his squad. The hilarity of saying the same exact thing, without ever actually proving it, one year to the date after two of their players got egg on their face, is just incredible.
