The Nats clinched the NL East over the weekend. They have no chance of catching the Cubs for the top spot in the National League so the only thing left to play for is home field in a potential matchup with the Dodgers.
I am not sure how hard they are going to push for that so they could be pretty hard to handicap this week.
Arizona has nothing to worry about. Unless they are all of sudden worried about finishing in last place.
Depending on how this last week turns out the D-Backs are in danger of being the worst team in the NL this season.
They thought they would have balance this season but a better than average offense has been sunk by the Majors worst pitching staff.
If they can get it turned around they have the bats. Yasmany Tomas has surged to lead the team in homers with 29. Paul Goldschmidt is having yet another strong season in obscurity.
Archie Bradly has definitely contributed to the team’s pitching woes with a season ERA of 5.02.
I guess the only good thing is that it is better than the ERA he posted in limited action as a rookie last season. He can strike batters out but walks way too many and gives up too many hits.
It remains to be seen whether he can get things on track and be the kind of pitcher his prospect ratings said he would be.
Having clinched the Nationals can use the final week of the season to get healthy and set up their rotation for the playoffs.
They have not played well in the last week so boosting their confidence couldn’t hurt.
On offense, Daniel Murphy, continues to make his case for MVP. There is some depth in the lineup though with five regulars having slugged 20 or more homers.
Nobody is talking about him but Tanner Roark is in the midst of a breakout season. He has pitched 200 inning for the first time while leading the club in ERA at 2.70.
He just needs to cut down his walks to get to that next level – fun fact how many seasons has Stephen Strasburg had with 200+ IP and an ERA under 3, none.
All of the additions the Nats have made to their bullpen, led by Mark Melancon, have paid off.
They are tough to get to late.

Free Arizona Diamondbacks vs. Washington Nationals MLB Prediction:
Bradley has looked awful at times but most at home where his ERA is over 6. This might be a spot to take advantage of that discrepancy.
It is not a long trip but Washington will be going from road to home for this one.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Arizona
I like the bats that Arizona has even though Roark is sharp. My hunch is also that the Nats might not play their regular lineup going from road to home this late in the season. Looks like a good spot to rest some guys.
This is not about which is the better team, just a strong betting opportunity.
