The way things are going this could certainly be a second round playoff matchup in the NL.
Washington is looking strong and I am curious to see how they reinforce their roster while Los Angeles is hoping they can just get healthy.
They are not likely to stand pat either and won’t be deterred by cost as they look to improve their chances of playoff success.
Los Angeles Dodgers
The Dodgers did not have a great weekend, dropping two of three out of the All-Star break.
Now they travel to Washington and even though the Nats are in first place the Dodgers have to feel good knowing they swept Washington earlier in the season.
In that series they got three strong pitching performances including one from Scott Kazmir.
Unfortunately strong performances have not been the norm for Kazmir.
When he is on he can still dominate a lineup like he did just before the break when he shutout Colorado for six innings with 10 strikeouts but he has not lit it up in the NL.
He gave up a couple of homers in that Washington game too so beware.
The Nats nearly swept Pittsburgh before losing in 18 inning on Sunday. As a result the off day they had on Monday could not have come at a better time.
It has to be only a matter of time before the Nats make a move to upgrade the offense. They scored just one run in 18 innings against the Bucs and they weren’t even walking Bryce Harper like crazy.
They could really use another legit power threat.
Even though the Nats have one of the best rotations in the Majors they are dipping into their depth with this one, it will be Reynaldo Lopez’ first MLB start.
His numbers over AA and AAA are pretty good and he definitely can miss bats at those levels.
Los Angeles may be a good team but overall this is not the most difficult lineup to navigate.

Free Los Angeles Dodgers vs. Washington Nationals MLB Prediction:
Kazmir is more than capable of shutting down the Nats and the Dodgers bullpen has been amazing this season.
They are even the underdogs despite a rookie on the hill so that tell you a lot about what the market thinks of him right now.
I am usually all over a first time starter and this time it is at home but that is usually because you get a nice underdog value in those cases. The Nats are not heavy favourites but I am not sure this spot is worth the risk.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Los Angeles +106
I guess I am saying to stick with the name you know in this one. Kazmir and the Dodgers are a nice value in this one and may the Nats are still a little gassed after their marathon on Sunday.
