Elliot Smith’s debut book is an efficient and educational story of the National’s rise from expansion-team doormat to division champs. My favorite part was the Ecstasy and the Agony, including the description of the Werth at bat. Although there were times when I felt like it was becoming an apologia for the Nationals (for example, the author seems to suggest that the reason why other GMs criticized Mike Rizzo for the decision to shut down Stephen Strasburg was guilt) it covers all the bases and is a good introduction to the team for Nat’s fans and fans of other teams.
