Washington Nationals Organization Discussion

I am now working on the Miami Marlins Top 20 list. The next team in line is the Washington Nationals, to be followed by the Los Angeles Angels, Pittsburgh Pirates, and New York Mets.

Use this thread to discuss the Washington organization. The big draw here is, of course, the phenomenal slugger Bryce Harper, the best prospect in baseball. But there is considerable talent beyond Harper, beginning with Anthony Rendon, Alex Meyer, and Brian Goodwin from the 2011 draft. You also have intriguing pitchers like Sammy Solis, A.J. Cole, and sudden development success Brad Peacock. Don't forget guys who keep exceeding expectations like Steve Lombardozzi and Tom Milone.

If you were running this organization, would you do anything differently? How do you assess the balance between upside and depth in the system? What will you be looking for in the 2012 draft?

As always with these discussions, feel free to point out sleeper prospects or players that you feel are unappreciated or possibly overlooked.
