The Washington Nationals will look to take on Marcus Stroman and the New York Mets this Saturday, as the two teams meetup for this contest at Citi Field in New York City.
The Washington Nationals are expected to do some big things this year and although they are 7-9 to start the season and currently sit at the bottom of their division, there are plenty of reasons to believe they will be in the World Series chase once again in October.
One of the main reasons to believe in this team is their batting lineup, as they have so many guys from 1 through 9 who can hit you with contrasting styles like on base guys like Trea Turner to straight up sluggers like Juan Soto.
The Nationals have, however, lost Juan Soto for the immediate future due to a left shoulder injury, with soto placed on the 10 day injured list and is expected to miss a couple of weeks.
Joe Ross is the projected starter here and he is in need of a big game here, as he is coming off a brutal outing surrendering 10 runs to the Cardinals in just under 5 innings pitched.
New York Mets
The Mets on the other hand come into this game right on at .500 and they really have been living off their stellar pitching lineup thus far this year with Jacob deGrom starting out the season asserting himself as baseball’s finest.
Jacob deGrom has not been the only guy turning heads in the pitching department on the Mets though, as today’s starter Marcus Stroman has been just as good coming in here with a 3-0 record and an ERA a shade under 1.
The problem for the Mets has been in the batting department where they have only batted in 45 runs so far, and it has not been batting as a whole that is the issue, but rather hitting with runners in scoring position which has been awful for the Mets here in 2021.

Free Washington Nationals vs. New York Mets MLB Prediction:
The New York Mets are tough to trust at this price, but I love the fact that we are getting Stroman on the mound and think that the Mets will eventually get their situational hitting problem figured out and it might as well start here against Ross who is coming off of a howler of a start.
This Nationals batting lineup is also heavily diminished without Soto around and can certainly see this team struggling a bit in his absence, as he gives this team a real boost with his production, but also a mental boost in the locker room.
