Stan Kasten, who helped build the Atlanta Braves' dynasty and is trying to do the same with the Washington Nationals baseball team, spoke at a National Press Club luncheon. He responded to questions submitted by members of the audience. Kasten is president of the Nationals, now in their fifth season in the nation's capital. The Nats are in last place in the National League's Eastern Division, though Kasten has preached patience as the team builds up its farm system, the same method he used with the Braves before they ran off an unprecedented 14 consecutive division titles.
