KEY GAME INFORMATION
WASHINGTON: 2017 97-65, first place, lost to Cubs in NLDS
MANAGER Dave Martinez (first season)
ADDITIONS: 1B-OF Matt Adams, C Miguel Montero, RHP Jeremy Hellickson, RHP Joaquin Benoit, INF Matt Reynolds
SUBTRACTIONS: Manager Dusty Baker, LF Jayson Werth, 1B-LF Adam Lind, C Jose Lobaton, RHP Matt Albers
OUTLOOK: This might be the end of an era at Nationals Park, with Harper eligible to leave as a free agent after the season and General Manager Mike Rizzo's contract set to expire, too. The team has won four NL East titles in the past six years but has zero playoff series victories to show for it. That's why yet another manager (Baker) lost his job, and yet another rookie skipper has been brought in (will Martinez have more success than Matt Williams?). Rizzo has made no secret of the need to start making postseason inroads -- a World Series is the stated goal, and that's certainly not an outrageous aim, given all the talent he's assembled. The lineup remains almost exactly the same, although Werth is gone after playing out his seven-year contract. The rotation and bullpen are also nearly identical to the way they looked at the end of 2017.
NY METS: 2017 70-92, fourth place
MANAGER Mickey Callaway (first season)
ADDITIONS: 3B Todd Frazier, RF Jay Bruce, LHP Jason Vargas, 1B Adrian Gonzalez, RHP Anthony Swarzak, LHP Matt Purke, C Jose Lobaton
SUBTRACTIONS: Manager Terry Collins, LHP Josh Smoker, LHP Josh Edgin, RHP Chasen Bradford, OF Norichika Aoki, RHP Erik Goeddel, RHP Tyler Pill, LHP Tommy Milone, OF Travis Taijeron
OUTLOOK: Callaway had great success with Cleveland's arms, and the injury-plagued Mets are counting on his methods, along with new pitching coach Dave Eiland, to keep their talented but fragile rotation intact. New York also overhauled its medical department, hoping to keep star players on the field. Syndergaard and deGrom make for an imposing 1-2 punch. So if Harvey, Matz and Zack Wheeler -- even one or two of them -- can finally stay healthy and approach their initial big league form, the pitching staff could be terrific again after unraveling last year with a 5.01 ERA that ranked 28th in the majors. Vargas was signed to eat innings but will miss some time at the beginning of the season after surgery for a broken right (nonpitching) hand. All-Star outfielder Michael Conforto (27 HRs, .384 OBP, .939 OPS) is targeting a May 1 return from surgery for a dislocated left shoulder. His status is critical to a lineup that lacks speed and a natural leadoff hitter. Nimmo made strides last season and is a potential candidate for that role while platooning early with Juan Lagares to fill Conforto's spot in center field. After the Mets spent nearly $90 million to plug holes in free agency, it still might be a stretch to envision them seriously challenging star-studded Washington for NL East supremacy. But with better health in a soft division, they could certainly rejoin the wild-card hunt.
PREVIEW
Mets brace for Scherzer, Nationals
 

NEW YORK -- New York Mets manager Mickey Callaway said he thinks his ace pitcher, Jacob deGrom, should start for the National League in next week's All-Star Game.

But Callaway and the Mets are almost surely going to see the NL's starter Thursday night, when Max Scherzer takes the mound for the Washington Nationals in the opener of a four-game series at Citi Field.

Scherzer (11-5, 2.33 ERA) is scheduled to oppose Mets left-hander Steven Matz (4-6, 3.31).

The Nationals were blanked Wednesday afternoon, when they fell to the host Pittsburgh Pirates 2-0. A few hours later, deGrom made one more impressive pitch to start the All-Star Game when he tossed eight scoreless innings against the visiting Philadelphia Phillies.

However, in what has become a theme of deGrom's season, he didn't earn a win for his efforts, though the Mets did eke out a 3-0, 10-inning victory thanks to Brandon Nimmo's three-run homer.

DeGrom, who was named to the All-Star team along with Scherzer on Sunday, finishes the first half 5-4 with a major league-leading 1.68 ERA. The 30-year-old right-hander has a 1.28 ERA in 15 starts dating back to April 21.

"He should be starting the All-Star Game," Callaway said afterward. "That's how I feel about him. There's no doubt in my mind, if he's not (starting), then that's the wrong decision."

Alas, chances are Callaway will disagree with the decision of NL manager Dave Roberts. The All-Star Game is being played in Washington and Scherzer, the two-time defending Cy Young Award winner, has a case to earn his second straight All-Star Game start and third overall well beyond being the hometown favorite.

Scherzer enters Thursday leading the NL in strikeouts (177), WHIP (0.89) and innings pitched (127 2/3) while remaining on pace for his third 20-win season.

"Whenever I get to pitch it's going to be awesome," Scherzer told reporters Sunday afternoon. "I've gotten a chance to be a part of these a handful of times now and it's always been really cool to see the hometown fans get behind the hometown All-Stars. I think some of the cool memories I've seen over the years is the fan support."

Scherzer made his first All-Star Game start in 2013, when the game was played at Citi Field, and he took the mound for the American League against the National League and then-Mets ace Matt Harvey.

Scherzer snapped a four-decision losing streak in his most recent start Saturday, when he allowed four runs over seven innings as the Nationals cruised to an 18-4 victory over the Miami Marlins.

Matz took the loss Saturday, when he gave up one run over 6 1/3 innings as the Mets fell to the Tampa Bay Rays 3-0. He is 1-2 with a 2.37 ERA in six career starts versus Washington.

Scherzer is 8-4 with a 2.23 ERA in 15 career appearances (14 starts) against the Mets. The ERA is his lowest against any opponent he's faced more than five times.

Scherzer no-hit the Mets on Oct. 3, 2015, when he struck out 17 and walked none in the Nationals' 2-0 win. Only a sixth-inning throwing error by third baseman Yunel Escobar prevented Scherzer from recording a perfect game.
