WASHINGTON — After a dominant August [url=http://www.billscheapshop.com/cheap-authentic-tre_davious-white-jersey]Cheap Tre'Davious White Jersey[/url] , the St. Louis Cardinals open a three-game series against the Washington Nationals looking for their first September win.The Cardinals dropped the final two games of their weekend series against the Cincinnati Reds, losing consecutive games for the first time since July 22-23.They arrive in Washington trailing the just departed Milwaukee Brewers by a half-game and the Chicago Cubs by 5 1/2 games in the National League Central. The Cardinals (76-61) had won 10 straight series.Article continues below ...A stellar pitching matchup opens the series Monday afternoon as St. Louis right-hander Jack Flaherty (8-6, 2.87 ERA) opposes right-hander Max Scherzer (16-6, 2.22).Flaherty went 4-0 in August with a 1.13 ERA and 38 strikeouts in 32 innings. Last time out he allowed one run and four hits in seven innings of a win over the Pittsburgh Pirates. He struck out five without a walk.“He’s a little different. Motivated. Works hard. Takes care of himself. I would really love to see him sustain what he’s doing for a long time,” Cardinals pitching coach Mike Maddux told the St. Louis Post Dispatch. “He’s really learning himself. And the more he learns himself, the more he likes himself, and it shows in his performance,”Scherzer, a candidate for a third straight NL Cy Young Award, is coming off two starts against Aaron Nola and the Philadelphia Phillies. He lost the first one and got a no-decision as Washington won the second. Scherzer was 2-1 during in August with a 1.89 ERA.He leads the league in strikeouts and his next one will give him 250 for the fifth straight season.Scherzer is 2-4 with a 2.70 ERA in eight starts against the Cardinals.On Sunday, the Cardinals loaded the bases with no outs in the ninth inning but failed to score, and Cincinnati’s Eugenio Suarez clubbed a two-run homer in the 10th in the Reds’ 6-4 win.“We weren’t able to execute our situational hitting where we wanted tonight,” Cardinals manager Mike Shildt said. “It’s been a strength of our club, and we expect it to be a strength of our club. We can’t overreact to (three) at-bats.”Cardinals right fielder Jose Martinez struck out four times. He has fanned seven times in nine at-bats.“I think what we’re seeing is he’s human. Just expanding the zone [url=http://www.billscheapshop.com/cheap-authentic-tre_davious-white-jersey]Authentic Tre'Davious White Jersey[/url] , maybe trying to do a little too much,” Shildt said. “He’ll be just fine. We’ll take him up there tomorrow in the same situation. I’ll tell you that.”Washington (68-69) couldn’t build on Saturday’s come-from-behind win and lost the rubber game to Milwaukee 9-4. The Nationals walked 11 batters Sunday, matching the team record since the club moved to Washington in 2005.Nationals starter Jefry Rodriguez (2-2) issued seven walks and allowed seven runs in 4 2/3 innings as the Brewers broke the game open with a seven-run fifth.“It’s the walks,” Nationals manager Dave Martinez said. “When you fall behind, it’s tough. They got pretty good hitters.”Three games into a 10-game homestand, the Nationals are 8 1/2 games behind the first-place Atlanta Braves with 25 games to play and eight back in the wild-card race.“You never give in to the game,” Nationals second baseman Wilmer Difo told the Washington Post. “Today, it didn’t happen for us, but it wasn’t because we changed our mindset or approach at all. It’s not always going to happen.” Abbie Parr/Getty ImagesThis year's MLB free-agent market is thin on impact starting pitching, and that could make for a busy winter on the trade market.Patrick Corbin, Dallas Keuchel and Nathan Eovaldi are the leading candidates for long-term deals, while seasoned veterans Charlie Morton (35) and J.A. Happ (36) are also capable of making a difference in the late stages of their respective careers.Beyond those five guys, it's largely a collection of injury risks and back-end starters.It should come as no surprise, then [url=http://www.pantherscheapshop.com/cheap-authentic-christian-mccaffrey-jersey]Cheap Christian McCaffrey Jersey[/url] , that some of the biggest trade rumors to have surfaced here in the early stages of the offseason have been pitching-centric. Ahead we've taken a look at some of the more notable recent chatter. James Paxton Drawing Interested from Astros, YankeesStephen Brashear/Getty ImagesSeattle Mariners general manager Jerry Dipoto was quick to downplay the likelihood of a full-scale rebuild after rumors surfaced that the M's might be open for business this winter.However, he didn't exactly sound like he was closed off to the idea of trading some big names either, telling Greg Johns of MLB.com: "Clearly over-dramatized is the best way to put that. We're open-minded to different ways we can get better, but what we're hoping to achieve is to reimagine our roster to look at it in terms of what is our quickest path to a championship club."In the days since those comments during the annual GM meetings, left-hander James Paxton has emerged as perhaps the most likely candidate to be moved among the club's big names.The Houston Astros are reportedly one team showing interest as they look to replace departing free agents Charlie Morton and Dallas Keuchel, while also dealing with the loss of Lance McCullers Jr. who recently underwent Tommy John surgery.Ken Rosenthal Ken_Rosenthal#Astros on list of teams talking to #Mariners about a trade for LHP James Paxton, sources say. Market described as 鈥渁ctive,鈥?including HOU, NYY and a wide variety of other clubs. Paxton in his career against HOU: 2.89 ERA in 71 2/3 innings, .605 opponents鈥?OPS.To take those head-to-head stats a step further, in eight starts against the Astros over the past two seasons, Paxton has gone 6-1 with a 1.89 ERA, 1.07 WHIP and 46 strikeouts in 47.2 innings. That's an impressive run of success against any in-division opponent [url=http://www.pantherscheapshop.com/cheap-authentic-christian-mccaffrey-jersey]Authentic Christian McCaffrey Jersey[/url] , let alone one of the most potent offenses in baseball.It's unlikely the Astros would be willing to part with Kyle Tucker, Forrest Whitley or Josh James in trade talks, but their system is plenty deep enough behind those three headliners to get a deal done.Outfielder Yordan Alvarez and right-handers Corbin Martin andJ.B. Bukauskas could all work as potential centerpieces.Meanwhile, the New York Yankees have also been linked to Paxton as they continue their search for rotation help.Ken Rosenthal Ken_Rosenthal#Yankees among teams that have spoken to #Mariners about a trade for LHP James Paxton, sources tell The Athletic. Paxton has two years of control left and is projected by mlbtraderumors to earn $9M in arbitration next season. NYY also on free-agent LH starters Corbin, Happ, etc.The Yankees have already re-signed CC Sabathia to a one-year deal to rejoin Luis Severino and Masahiro Tanaka in the rotation, but they're not finished adding arms by any means.If the Mariners are looking for one top-tier prospect in the deal, the headliner from the Yankees side would likely be Estevan Florial, since left-hander Justus Sheffield will be off-limits.Otherwise, they could put together an attractive package of high-ceiling arms in a system rich on pitching talent.Paxton, 30, pitched a career-high 160.1 innings in 2018, going 11-6 with a 3.76 ERA [url=http://www.clevelandbrownsteamonline.com/baker-mayfield-jersey]Baker Mayfield Jersey Elite[/url] , 1.10 WHIP and a 208-to-42 strikeout-to-walk ratio.He comes with two more years of team control and is projected to earn an extremely team-friendly $9 million in his third year of arbitration, according to MLBTradeRumors.Yankees Discussed Corey Kluber, Carlos Carrasco at GM MeetingsTim Warner/Getty ImagesRumors surfaced last week that the Cleveland Indians will be willing to listen to offers for a number of high-profile veterans this offseason as they continue to deal with financial restrictions.Buster Olney Buster_ESPNFaced with market constraints, the Indians will listen to trade offers for some of their veteran players this winter, according to sources. Kluber, Carrasco, Encarnacion, Gomes, etc. Lindor, Ramirez will definitely be held.The Yankees became an obvious speculative trade partner for Corey Kluber and Carlos Carrasco as they look to bolster the rotation.Now it appears there's at least some basis for that speculation, as the two teams reportedly met during the recent GM meetings.Jon Heyman JonHeymanNYY met with Indians about Kluber and Carrasco at gm meetings, and via Ken_Rosenthal has now talked to Seattle EHOXdtlHiTAside from the aforementioned Florial, the Yankees have a teenage outfielder with an extremely high ceiling named Everson Pereira, and he's a name to know as the team continues to scour the trade market for pitching help.Kluber (33 GS [url=http://www.billscheapshop.com/cheap-authentic-tre_davious-white-jersey]http://www.billscheapshop.com/cheap-authentic-tre_davious-white-jersey[/url] , 20-7, 2.89 ERA, 0.99 WHIP, 222 K, 215 IP) and Carrasco (30 GS, 17-10, 3.38 ERA, 1.13 WHIP, 231 K, 192 IP) would both be game-changing additions to a Yankees focused on chasing down the rival Boston Red Sox in the AL East.Time will tell if any of these front-line arms are actually moved, but it's already shaping up to be an exciting winter on the trade market.
