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 Jon Niese 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, 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 http://www.rangersfanproshop.com/authentic-edinson-volquez-jersey , 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, 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 Elvis Andrus Jersey , 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, 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. ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — It was another Minor victory for the Texas Rangers, after they went ahead on solo homers by Adrian Beltre and Elvis Andrus.Mike Minor, a full-time reliever for the Royals last season after missing 2 1/2 years because of surgery for a torn labrum, won for the fifth time in his last six starts as the Rangers beat the Los Angeles Angels 4-2 on Tuesday night.“I think people at the beginning didn’t expect me to have a good season. I think they thought I should go to the bullpen, wasn’t cut out to be a starter anymore in my career,” the 30-year-old left-hander said. “It does feel good to end like this. A couple of more starts to go.” Andrus hit the first pitch of the fourth inning against Andrew Heaney (8-9) to tie the game at 1. Two batters later Ivan Rodriguez Jersey , Beltre went deep for the ninth time this season and 471st time in his career to put Texas ahead to stay. He has 3,147 career hits, the most among active players, after that homer and a single in the eighth.“Huge for those two guys to step up in that situation,” manager Jeff Banister said.Minor (11-7) pitched into the sixth, striking out seven with one walk and a hit batter while allowing two runs and three hits. He has thrown 140 innings in 25 starts for Texas, which has done its best to manage his time on the mound.“Probably couldn’t ask for it to work, to this point, any better,” Banister said.Jose Leclerc struck out two in a perfect ninth for his ninth save — all in nine chances since Aug. 4, after the Rangers traded closer Keone Kela to Pittsburgh.Minor wasn’t sure he would ever pitch again during the seasons he missed. The former first-round pick for Atlanta, who started 110 games for the Braves from 2010-14, got over that hurdle with 65 relief appearances for Kansas City last year, then turned down a $10 million option to stay with the Royals for a three-year deal with Texas and the chance to start again. Shohei Ohtani hit his 16th homer for the Angels leading off the sixth to end Minor’s night. It was Ohtani’s first major league homer off a left-handed pitcher, after striking out in his first two at-bats against Minor.“Just that one home run I hit. I had a couple other opportunities with runners on base and couldn’t come through there, so I’m not fully satisfied with my results http://www.rangersfanproshop.com/authentic-shin-soo-choo-jersey ,” Ohtani said through a translator. “But I do think I’m getting better when I’m facing left-handers.”ADRIAN AGAINST THE ANGELSBeltre played in his 254th career game against the Angels, second only to Hall of Famer Carl Yastrzemski’s 280. Beltre has 46 homers and 165 RBIs against the Angels, his most against any team — only Alex Rodriguez (70) and Rafael Palmeiro (49) have more homers, and only A-Rod has more RBIs (169). … Beltre is 8 for 14 with three homers in his career against Heaney.CLOSING IT DOWNLeclerc has thrown 15 consecutive scoreless innings, the longest streak by a Texas pitcher this season. Opponents have 25 strikeouts with only two hits in their last 43 at-bats against Leclerc.OTHER RUNSNomar Mazara had a two-run double for the Rangers in the fifth. … Andrelton Simmons, the Angels shortstop playing on his 29th birthday, had an RBI groundout in the first.TRAINER’S ROOMAngels: Ohtani, the two-way rookie who was in the lineup as the DH, will throw a light bullpen Wednesday. He is then scheduled to throw another one Friday that will determine if he will make his next scheduled pitching start Sunday at the Chicago White Sox. … CF Mike Trout was hit by a pitch on the right knee when batting in the first inning. He remained in the game and iced his knee afterward. The Angels don’t consider it serious.Rangers: Bartolo Colon, the 45-year-old right-hander, will make his first start since Aug. 20. He was on the disabled list from Aug. 24 to Sept. 1 because of a lower back strain.UP NEXTThe Angels and Rangers wrap up their second series in Arlington in less than three weeks Wednesday. The two teams at the bottom of the AL West standings still play two more series this season, both in California — next Monday through Wednesday, and then Sept. 24-26 during the last week of the regular season.

Physical Gold

BullionVault

Protect yourself and family from central bank currency debasement and inflation in asset prices, housing, food. There are rising levels of financial, economic and geopolitical risk in the world. In the last 100 years, all currencies have lost 97-99% of their purchasing power. Some believe that the final move to zero will take place in the next few years.

Currency debasement through money printing is the destruction of fiat money purchasing power - $, €, ¥, £, yuan, Venezuelan Bolívar, Argentine Peso, Zimbabwean Dollar...

True inflation and cost of living is currently 8% higher than the government reports. Real wages are falling rapidly and most people are taking out more and more debt to make ends meet. Only the wealthy minority and banks benefit from the current system.

Protect yourself. Buy physical, allocated gold, silver, platinum online and store it in safe vaults outside your jurisdiction (Switzerland, UK, USA, Canada and Singapore) or, at home. Physical gold has limited supply. Buy before the panic!

Look what happened in Cyprus (2013), Greece (2015) and Spain (Catalonia 2017). The lesson is that the money in your bank account is not really yours. It can be taken or frozen by the government just when you need it. Maybe it is not a good idea to keep too much money in the bank, especially when the next financial crisis comes!
