A pair of old friends will reconnect when the B

Former teammates Rick Porcello (9-2 Noah Fant Jersey , 3.60) of the Red Sox and Max Scherzer (10-4, 2.04) square off for the first time in the opener of a three-game series.

Porcello and Scherzer spent five seasons together with the Detroit Tigers, reaching the 2012 World Series before losing to the San Francisco Giants.

Since leaving Detroit, Porcello won the 2016 American League Cy Young Award and Scherzer is making a strong case for his third straight National League Cy Young. Both have been aware this matchup was coming.

“Looking forward to it. We’ve been texting back and forth,” Porcello told the Boston Globe. “We’ve had a good time with it and I’m sure we’ll both get a kick about going against each other once the game starts.”

Scherzer is looking for his first win since June 5, though he’s pitched well enough to win each of his past four starts, allowing two earned runs or less in each outing. The Nationals are 1-3 in those starts and were shut out in each loss.

“I think everybody’s been punched in the face before of not having success,” Scherzer told The Washington Post after his last start, a 1-0 loss to the Marlins. “This is the big leagues; they are going to keep coming down your throat and keep attacking you.”

Scherzer http://www.thebroncosfootballauthentic.com/dalton-risner-jersey-authentic , Washington’s only dependable starter of late, is 4-4 with a 6.05 ERA in 10 starts versus Boston.

Porcello allowed four runs on eight hits in 5 2/3 innings last time out in a no-decision against the Angels.

He’s 1-0 with a 3.38 ERA in his lone start against Washington, an eight-inning effort in April of 2015.

The Nationals (42-40) squandered an early 3-0 lead in Philadelphia on Sunday and fell 4-3 in 13 innings on Andrew Knapp’s pinch-hit walk-off home run as Washington dropped a second straight weekend series to their division rivals.

Washington managed only four hits in eight innings against the Philadelphia bullpen in the finale.

“Offensively, we’ve got to do more,” outfielder Adam Eaton told The Post. “That’s plain and simple. We score early and then we can’t coast. We can’t take our foot off the accelerator. We got to keep going.”

The Nationals are now 6-15 in their past 21 games and fell six games behind Atlanta in the NL East.

In each of their last nine losses, they’ve scored three or fewer runs.

“We’ve got to start striking out less,” manager Dave Martinez told MASN, “putting the balls in play, driving in runs when we have the ability to drive in runs.”

Boston (56-29) finished a three-game series against the Yankees on a forgettable note Sunday night Drew Lock Jersey , getting routed 11-1 behind starter David Price as New York blasted six home runs, including three by Aaron Hicks.

Price allowed eight runs on nine hits in 3 1/3 innings.

The Red Sox dropped two of three and travel south percentage points behind the Yankees in the AL East.

The NFL offseason is in full swing, and last week the league blew up with the start of free agency as teams swapped players and picks, all in the hopes of getting better next year and the years to come.Regardless of all the trades and the moving draft picks around, along with the dumping salary, there is one position that matters more than anything: quarterback.It is truly a QB’s league, and if you don’t have a great one, you’re not going to go too far. You may have a shot at making the playoffs, like the Houston Texans did last year Anthony Nelson Jersey , but you’re not getting in when you have to face off against Andrew Luck, Tom Brady, Aaron Rodgers, or Peyton Manning. Defense will get you through the season, but even the Seattle Seahawks have a dynamic leader in Russell Wilson who finds a way to get the first down, get the touchdown, and win the game (except at the end of the Super Bowl).The Texans, alongside teams like the Bills, the Chiefs Jeffery Simmons Jersey , and the Cardinals were solid teams last year that were competing for playoff spots, but overall they didn’t have a great player at QB to lead them further. Conversely, the Giants may have stumbled, but Eli Manning, whether or not you like him, is a two-time Super Bowl champion, and with him in place, pieces can be put together around him.Quarterback is the most important position in the league, and for about half the teams Nate Davis Jersey , it’s the position they need to address. So let’s take a look at the biggest quarterback messes in the league this offseason. These are the teams that are muddled in mediocrity or on the verge of heading quickly downhill. Now, while the Raiders and Jaguars have been at the bottom of the league for some time, we are leaving them out, as it looks like David Carr and Blake Bortles could be very good players. They are at least decent enough to be the certain starter going forward as these clubs rebuild.We are also leaving off the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. With the top pick, it’s assumed they will select Jameis Winston, who will be their opening day starter and have the opportunity to lead the team. There are still plenty of QB messes to go around.
