The Nats ceded their lead in the NL East over the weekend. With this series they are looking to get back on track at home.
Detroit has yet to really come together this season, the biggest news out of Tigerland is that Justin Verlander finally “put a ring on it”. They need him, and some others, to start earning the dough he used to buy that rock.
The Tigers have a versatile lineup complete with table setters and sluggers, they should rank a lot higher than 14th in runs scored.
Unless the usual suspects start hitting at career norms I fear what will happen when Nick Castellanos realized he is not Ted Williams.
Justin Upton has been a disaster this season. He has as many strikeouts as Castellanos and Ian Kinsler combined. Miggy has not been Miggy just yet.
Rookie Michael Fulmer will be making his third MLB start in this one. Thus far the results have been mixed with one pretty good outing and one where he was hit hard. Oddly, all of his starts have come on the road and this one will be too.
Detroit is always looking to build up its bullpen and went into the offseason with that in mind. Despite a new cast of characters they are not getting great results. They are in the middle of the pack in terms of ERA but no other pen strikes out so few batters.
The Nats got a reality check over the weekend as they lost four games to the Cubs.
They still look like a great bet to return the playoffs this season but that is hardly assured with the Mets slipping back in front in the division.
The pitching is good but the offense is struggling to find complements to their big bats.
Daniel Murphy and Bryce Harper are the only consistent contributors and everyone is already pitching around Harper. Someone, anyone has to step up.
Joe Ross is probably the least known of all the Nats starters but he has been brilliant this season with a 1.23 ERA over 5 starts. He has ye to give up more than 2ER in any starts this season and has pitched 6 inning in all but one.
The Nats were right to swap him in for Doug Fister.
The Washington bullpen may have a losing record but this group has been pretty good. They traded away Drew Storen in the offseason but Jonathan Papelbon has not been that sharp.
He might round into form but I would be a little worried long term because he is not missing bats.

Free Detroit Tigers vs. Washington Nationals MLB Prediction:
The markets could be a little down on Washington and now is the time to strike Detroit is not all that good right now and Joe Ross will eventually get recognized if he is as good as he has been. When Ross is on the mound the Nats will always be better value than when Strasburg or Scherzer take the hill and the odds of cashing are probably about the same.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Washington ML
Washington is a good team and with the better hurler on the hill, at home, I am having a hard time going in the opposite direction. Detroit has been so frustrating this season. I am not sure they are going to have a renaissance.
