Span believes Nationals will be his best team yet

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."
