Next year could be tougher

At least in the NL East. The Phils will still be the Phils and the Nats are already talking about bolstering their rotation.

The Nationals have sent a scout to Oakland to watch Rangers left-hander C.J. Wilson pitch against the Athletics on Wednesday, according to two baseball sources.

It more than likely means that the Nationals will have interest in Wilson, who is a free agent after the World Series.

Wilson, Strasburg and Zimmerman would be a formidable trio. Jayson Stark reports scouts expect Prince Fielder to end up with the Nats, who’ve also discussed trading for B.J. Upton. Even the Marlins are making noise about spending big. I doubt they’ll exceed the Braves’ payroll but I wouldn’t be surprised if the Nats do.
