Improving the bench would be one of Washington's top priorities this season.
Might the Nationals consider bringing Mets outfielder Willie Harris back into the fold next year? Harris, a free agent after this season, can play every position except first base, catcher and pitcher.
Harris, who was a popular figure in Washington, is hitting .245 with a home run and 17 RBIs for the Mets. With the Nats, Harris was a productive hitter off the bench. Last year, Harris drove in 32 runs in 224 at-bats.
Harris wasn't available Sunday to discuss his feelings about the Nationals or Mets.
