And I agree, the breakthrough season is awesome. It's where the feeling of winning is freshest and the team is just crushing your expectations in every way.
I truly believe those days are ahead for the Redskins and Wizards too. Maybe not to the same extent as the Nats, they didn't get back to back generational phenoms in the draft like we did with the Nats. But the young talent will bloom.

Also WAR is important, it should definitely be a big factor in any individual award.
(Yes, I believe Mike Trout should be the AL MVP)
