Span believes Nationals will be his best team yet

WASHINGTON -- Center fielder Denard Span played in the postseason with the Twins in 2009 and '10. But he believes the 2013 Nationals will be better than those two teams.

Those two Twins teams were both eliminated in the American League Division Series by the Yankees.

"On paper, [the Nationals] have more talent," Span said. "The teams that I was on [in Minnesota], we were not expected to win our division or go to the playoffs. We kind of snuck up on some teams. So it's going to be a little different for me – being on the other side when you are favored to win. Talent wise, I think we have a deeper team than I've ever been on."
