The champagne hasn't even been cleaned out of the visitors' clubhouse at Rangers Ballpark in Arlington and already we're ready to talk about spring training.
The Nationals just released their 2011 Grapefruit League schedule. No real surprises; the slate features all the usual suspects. For the second straight year, the Nats are scheduled to play the Yankees both in Viera and in Tampa. Last year, the home game was rained out, so if this one is played it will represent the first appearance by the Pinstripers at Space Coast Stadium since 2000.
Here's the full schedule…
February 28 vs. Mets in Port St. Lucie (1:10 p.m.)
March 1 vs. Mets in Viera (1:05 p.m.)
March 2 vs. Marlins in Viera (1:05 p.m.)
March 3 vs. Cardinals in Jupiter (TBD)
March 4 vs. Braves in Viera (1:05 p.m.)
March 5 vs. Yankees in Tampa (TBD)
March 6 vs. Braves in Viera (1:05 p.m.)
