On the first Monday of each month we roll out our Monthly MLB Report Card (forever to be known as MMLBRC) for the Mets, Phillies and Yankees. We’ll still check in from time to time with short posts to quickly take the pulse of each team, but think of the MMLBRC as an in depth physical (anal probing not included). Truthfully, a month is probably too small of a sample size to make overarching claims like we will attempt to, but dammit, you want content! So rather than write well-reasoned quarterly updates, we’ll make rash decisions based on far too little data. Now in the box: the defending NL East champs.

Six months later, the Nats return to Citizens Bank Park for Philadelphia’s Opening Day.
We’ll be live blogging below starting at 3:05 p.m. — assuming the weather holds up — so be sure to check back often. And feel free to leave any comments below.
