30. Washington Nationals (13-35) - The Nationals last? You don't say! The Nationals are a very unlucky team.

While they stand at 13-33, there are plenty of positives. They have some bright rookies (Shairon Martis, Jordan Zimmermann, Ross Detwiler), and while Zimmermann has been good at times, he has been rather inconsistent, sporting a 6.07 ERA.
