Though there was a threat of rain this morning, today's game shouldn't be disrupted.
VIERA, Fla. — The crowd is beginning to file into Space Coast Stadium. The media throng is trying to get the wireless internet to work in the press box. And down in the clubhouse, Stephen Strasburg is making final preparations for the most-hyped two innings in the history of the Grapefruit League.
No, this isn't your ordinary, run-of-the-mill Tuesday in Viera.
Check back throughout the afternoon for updates from Strasburgmania…
