WASHINGTON —hedule with a three-game series against the Miami Marlins beginning Monday night.After dropping three of four to the fourth-place New York Mets over the weekend Andrew McCutchen Jersey , third-place Washington (77-77) needs to go 4-2 this weekend to cap a seventh straight winning season.Miami right-hander Sandy Alcantara (2-1, 2.35) and right-hander Stephen Strasburg (9-7, 3.83) square off in a rematch of a Sept. 18 pairing won by Strasburg and Washington, 4-2. Strasburg allowed two runs on five hits over six innings, while striking out 11 and walking two.Article continues below ...Over his last five starts, Strasburg is 3-0 with a 2.64 ERA and 38 strikeouts.“He’s been really good,” Nationals manager Dave Martinez told The Washington Post. “He’s pitching now. He’s mixing all of his pitches in and attacking the strike zone.”Strasburg is 17-7 with a 3.04 ERA in 30 career starts against Miami.Alcantara lasted just four innings against Washington, allowing three earned runs on six hits and six walks in absorbing his first loss of the season.“When we talk about young guys, this is what we see http://www.giantsfanproshop.com/authentic-evan-longoria-jersey ,” Marlins manager Don Mattingly told the South Florida Sun Sentinel. “We see good and then we see some ones that are not as good. Today, the command didn’t seem to be there. A lot of misses, counts get bad and a lot of pitches in a short period of time.“It’s something he’ll be able to learn from and you’ve got to continue to work and be consistent with what you do and that’s what separates the guys who are going to be really good and the guys who are going to be OK.”Miami finished the home portion of its schedule with a 6-0 win over the Reds Sunday, taking three of four in the weekend series. At 62-93 with one game unlikely to be made up, the Marlins should avoid 100 losses but also won’t approach their 77 wins of a year ago.“No matter what, we knew what we were kind of embarking on this year, with a lot of the changes,” Mattingly told mlb.com. “The new direction of the club, under the new ownership. You understand all that. Still Gregor Blanco Jersey , the losses add up, and those are hard to deal with.“But I’ve been proud of the guys. I’ve felt they’ve continued to play hard and continued to give you the effort, and that’s not easy to do when you’re taking that many losses on the chin.”Washington is also playing out the string after being eliminated from postseason contention on Saturday. They lost 8-6 to the Mets in Sunday’s finale.Twenty-five-year-old rookie Erick Fedde, the team’s first-round pick in the 2014 draft, is among those bidding for a 2019 starting rotation spot. Against the Mets Sunday, he lasted only 3 1/3 innings, giving up three runs in a no-decision.In nine starts this season, Fedde has yet to go beyond six innings.“There are times when I’m like: ‘I can pitch at this level, I can be successful and I think I can dominate http://www.giantsfanproshop.com/authentic-evan-longoria-jersey ,'” he told MASN.com. “And then there are times that are like: ‘What are you doing out there?’ But I think that comes with the learning curve, and I just need to make sure that isn’t a very long learning curve.” The New York Mets have apparently entered the Bryce Harper sweepstakes.According to Fancred Sports' Jon Heyman, "there are hints" that聽the NL East team hasn't "totally ruled" out the possibility of signing the 26-year-old Harper, who stands to land the richest free agent deal in American sports history.Before Heyman's report, the Mets were not strongly linked to the Harper sweepstakesPer Bob Nightengale of USA TODAY Sportsexecutives believe the Philadelphia Phillies will wind up winners of the Harper derby.The New York Yankees, Chicago Cubs and Washington Nationals - Harper's team of seven years - have also been reported as potential suitors. Now, the retooling Mets appear to be in on the 2015 NL MVP who has terrified them since he broke into the league six years ago.advertisingLed by powerful sports agent Scott Boras, Harper's camp figures to surpass Giancarlo Stanton's $325 million mammoth deal the Miami Marlins gave him in 2014. That remains the richest contract in North American sports history. Credit: Russell Lansford-USA TODAY SportsHarper has been considered the co-face of baseball alongside LA Angels star Mike Trout since his 2012 rookie season. That year Duane Kuiper Jersey , Harper burst onto the scene as a 19-year-old and led the Nationals to the playoffs for the first time since relocation from Montreal in 2005.A six-time All-Star, Harper is a career .279 hitter with 184 home runs and 521 RBI. Given his age (26), powerful hitting, superb defense and status as one of the most recognized athletes in the world, Harper will have no problem signing a contract worth around $350 million.advertisingWhat This MeansThe Mets obviously have the financial resources to outbid other teams for Harper's services. But this team has a lot of weaknesses all over the roster, so it might not make sense to invest all their money into one player.But it seems like the Phillies aren't a slam-dunk to get Harper at this point. With other NL East rivals in the bidding, the Harper sweepstakes could go on for quite a while. But when all is said and done, he'll be getting paid record and historic amounts of cash.
