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.
CHICAGO CUBS: 017 92-70, first place, lost to Dodgers in NLCS
MANAGER Joe Maddon (fourth season)
ADDITIONS: RHP Yu Darvish, RHP Brandon Morrow, RHP Tyler Chatwood, RHP Steve Cishek, LHP Drew Smyly, C Chris Gimenez
SUBTRACTIONS: RHP Wade Davis, C Alex Avila, C Rene Rivera, RHP Jake Arrieta, RHP John Lackey
OUTLOOK: World Series or bust. The acquisition of Darvish, who finalized a $126 million, six-year contract in February, gives Chicago a strong rotation, and the lineup is young, deep and dangerous. A franchise-record six players (Rizzo, Schwarber, Bryant, Happ, Baez and Contreras) belted at least 20 home runs last year, including a major league-record five in an age 25 or younger season. Chicago also scored more than 800 runs in consecutive seasons for the first time since the team surpassed that mark for three consecutive years from 1929-1931. The Cubs have made it to the NL Championship Series for three consecutive seasons, winning it all in 2016 to end a 108-year drought, and there's no reason to think they won't be in the mix for another title this year.
Cubs, Nats hoping for consistency

CHICAGO -- For a couple of teams that started the season with aspirations of winning their respective division and more, the Chicago Cubs and Washington Nationals scuffled through the season, fighting inconsistency at every turn.

The Cubs enter Friday's game against the Nationals atop the National League Central despite going just 4-3 in a seven-game stretch against a pair of last-place teams. Chicago is coming off a 9-0 loss to the Kansas City Royals that prevented the Cubs from completing a sweep they hoped to use to build momentum heading into this weekend's three-game series with the Nationals.

Chicago was held to just three hits and will now try to ramp things back up as they attempt to build a cushion in the Central. Manager Joe Maddon doesn't expect that to be easy.

"I don't think you're going to see a lot of space created the rest of the year by anybody," Maddon told reporters after Wednesday's loss, according to the Chicago Tribune. "I think it's going to be like what you're seeing."

For the Cubs, that means surviving what's been a season-long ride of ups and downs. While the Cubs have managed to avoid too many valleys, they have never found a way to put together sustained stretches of success, either.

Despite not playing as well against the Royals and their fellow basement dweller San Diego Padres, who managed to split a four-game series with the Cubs last weekend at Wrigley Field, first baseman Anthony Rizzo said he and his teammates have to move on.

"Do you think we should just dwell on it, especially on this team?" Rizzo said Wednesday, according to the Tribune.

Kyle Hendricks (8-9, 4.07 ERA) will start out the series for Chicago. Hendricks has been better of late and has won his last two starts. He allowed four runs and struck out seven over five innings in his last start against the Padres. Hendricks is 2-2 with a 2.67 in five career starts against the Nationals.

Washington enters Friday's series opener having won seven of its last 10 games. The Nationals used a strong performance from Gio Gonzalez in a 6-3 win over the Atlanta Braves on Thursday that earned the Nationals a split in the four-game series.

The Nationals won despite not having Bryce Harper in the lineup. Harper was scratched after being hit in the leg by a pitch on Wednesday. Harper will likely be ready to return Friday and is hitting .339 with five home runs and 17 RBIs since the All-Star break.

"It's pretty swollen still," manager Dave Martinez told reporters Thursday, according to MLB.com. "Rather than him try to play through it, we thought the best option would be to have him come off the bench."

Gonzalez, who had been 0-6 in his last 11 starts since his last victory, took advantage of plenty of run support in Thursday's victory. Now Washington will attempt to keep trending in the right direction against a Cubs team that will be coming off an off-day.

Friday's game will be a bit of a homecoming for Martinez, who worked as Maddon's bench coach in Chicago before taking his first managerial position. Martinez was on the Cubs staff that led Chicago to a World Series title in 2016.

Jeremy Hellickson (5-2, 3.56) will start the series for the Nationals, having won three of his previous five starts. Hellickson allowed a pair of runs on four hits over 5 2/3 innings in his last start against the Cincinnati Reds. Hellickson is 1-1 with a 7.59 ERA in two career starts against the Cubs.
