The Nationals may not have yet made a major acquisition so far this winter, but no one can say they haven't been paying attention to what the rest of their division is doing.
On Wednesday afternoon, reports of the Phillies signing free agent starter Zack Wheeler leaked across Twitter, the latest win-now move made by an NL East team in the early goings of the offseason. The Nationals didn't make a move of similar caliber, but they did use the deal as an opportunity to remind Philadelphia just what star outfielder Juan Soto could do against Wheeler.

Petty? Maybe. But the Nationals' social media team saw the opportunity to troll two teams with one tweet. If you're not going to be petty as the reigning World Series champs, when else can you?
