WASHINGTON (AP) — Not only did the 2018 Washington Nationals fail to get over the hump — despite those infamous camels — they didn’t even make the postseason David Freese Jersey , let alone finally win a playoff series for the first time.“It’s not something you want to go through,” Bryce Harper said. “You have all the hopes and aspirations to be one of the best teams in baseball in spring training. We did what we could to possibly get there, but we didn’t do enough.”Now the big question looming over the earlier-than-expected offseason becomes whether Harper will leave as a free agent.“Nobody knows if I’m going to be back or nobody knows if I am going to be in a different uniform,” the 2012 NL Rookie of the Year and 2015 NL MVP said. “If something happens, I am not afraid of change.”Plenty of roster shuffling is expected for a club that finished 82-80 for second place in the NL East under rookie manager Dave Martinez after winning two consecutive division titles with the discarded Dusty Baker.Nothing will matter quite as much as what happens with Harper, who is not only one of the on-field leaders of the Nationals, he is one of the most prominent players in the entire sport.That’s why the slugging outfielder, who posted team highs of 34 homers, 100 RBIs, 103 runs (tied) and 130 walks, should get a contract worth hundreds of millions of dollars, perhaps even surpassing the record for the largest deal in baseball history.“With these type of deals you’re talking about Tyler Glasnow Jersey , you’re not betting on the baseball player, you’re betting on the person,” general manager Mike Rizzo said. “And he’s a person we’d like to have with us.”A resolution to that, however it goes, would help Rizzo determine what resources he has to use toward all of the other issues that need addressing.“I consider this year an anomaly,” Rizzo said.A look at what else to know about the Nationals as thoughts turn to 2019:INJURIES TO BLAME?Both Rizzo and Martinez — along with some of their players — pointed to injuries as a contributing factor in the disappointing season. 1B Ryan Zimmerman, 2B Daniel Murphy, OF Adam Eaton and C Matt Wieters each played in fewer than 100 games. Key backup Howie Kendrick played in only 40. RHP Stephen Strasburg missed about a third of the season. 3B Anthony Rendon was sideline for a few weeks early on. Closer Sean Doolittle and other members of the bullpen sat out stretches, too. “We were always missing pieces,” Martinez said. “As we (cleared) one hurdle, something happened.”MARTINEZ’S FUTUREThere have been questions about whether Martinez will keep his job. Rizzo has been supportive, although the GM seemed to be in Baker’s corner http://www.piratesfanproshop.com/authentic-adam-frazier-jersey , too. “We haven’t considered anything else. We think he’s got a firm grasp on the clubhouse. He’s doing a good job in the dugout,” Rizzo said. “I think he’s getting better each and every day, each and every game.” As for what Martinez thinks he might do differently next season? “We’re going to spend a lot more time on just the fundamentals of baseball and doing the little things,” he said. “Because little things, to me, can become really big things.”SCHERZER AND STRASBURG Max Scherzer’s 300 strikeouts, 2.53 ERA, 220 2/3 innings and various other stats showed once again how valuable the righty is. Beyond him and Strasburg, though, there’s not much there in the rotation. Washington could add at least two, maybe three, starters.SOTO AND ROBLESThe most promising news of 2018 was the discovery of 19-year-old outfielder Juan Soto Chad Kuhl Jersey , the NL Rookie of the Month in June, July and September who finished with a .292 average, 22 homers, 70 RBIs and 79 walks. Only two other teenagers (Harper was one) ever hit 20 HRs in a season. Another young outfielder, 21-year-old Victor Robles, also appears to be a keeper.SO MANY NEEDSThe Nationals must find starters at second base and catcher. They need bullpen help. They need new bench pieces. ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — Trey Mancini kept the Baltimore Orioles from beating themselves Wednesday night.Mancini hit a go-ahead two-run double in the ninth inning, and the last-place Orioles beat the Tampa Bay Rays 5-4 despite committing five errors, their most in a game in more than 19 years.It was the first time the Orioles committed five errors in a victory since June 9, 1983.“I don’t know the last time I’ve been part of a game that we’ve had five errors and won,” Mancini said. “But baseball can be a very beautiful thing sometimes where maybe you make some mistakes, but maybe at the end of the day you still do enough to win the game.”Sergio Romo (2-3) allowed consecutive hits to Mark Trumbo http://www.piratesfanproshop.com/authentic-ivan-nova-jersey , Danny Valencia and Mancini in the ninth, the only three batters he faced. It was Romo’s seventh blown save.“It just kind of happened, maybe location,” Romo said. “I haven’t seen the replay and I don’t think I’m going to. I think I’ll just chalk that one up to the baseball gods.”Tampa Bay has played five straight one-run games and lost four of them.It was only the second time in 73 tries the Orioles won a game when trailing after eight innings.“It’s been a challenge for us,” manager Buck Showalter said. “You just don’t win major league games very often like that.”Mike Wright Jr. (3-0) got two outs in relief, and Mychal Givens pitched the ninth for his third save.Carlos Gomez put Tampa Bay ahead 4-3 in the eighth with an RBI double off Wright. He also scored the tying run in the seventh on a sacrifice fly fielded by the shortstop.Tim Beckham and Adam Jones homered on consecutive pitches in the first inning off opener Ryne Stanek. Trumbo led off the fourth with his 16th homer, extending his hitting streak to 10 games.Baltimore starter Andrew Cashner gave up three runs and four hits in seven innings. Only one of the runs was earned.After giving up three singles and two runs in the first inning, Cashner retired 18 of his next 19 before hitting Gomez with a pitch in the seventh. Kevin Kiermaier then bounced into an apparent forceout, but Beckham, playing shortstop, missed the base with his foot.Willy Adames followed with a hit when Beckham lost his footing on a grounder to deep short, loading the bases. And after Beckham caught Michael Perez’s flyball in short left field http://www.piratesfanproshop.com/authentic-jameson-taillon-jersey , Gomez tagged up. Beckham’s throw was way off line, allowing Gomez to score.“Cash was the difference tonight,” Showalter said. “He didn’t give up a hard-hit ball in the first inning and he gave up two runs, but he just kept pitching.”Stanek pitched two innings, giving up the homers to Beckham and Jones while striking out four. It was Beckham’s sixth home run and Jones’ 12th.TRAINER’S ROOMOrioles: Switch-hitting INF Steve Wilkerson (left oblique strain) still has some discomfort swinging from the left side and is not ready for a rehab assignment.Rays: OF Tommy Pham (hairline right foot fracture) played catch and hit off a tee, and could return later this month. … Reliever Chaz Roe (left knee) will start a rehab assignment Thursday night was Class A Charlotte.UP NEXTRHP David Hess, who pitched 6 2/3 shutout innings against the Rays in his last victory on May 25, will pitch Thursday night’s series finale for the Orioles against Rays opener Hunter Wood, probably followed by Yonny Chirinos.
