Gio Gonzalez faces the Cardinals today at Roger Dean Stadium.
JUPITER, Fla. — Obviously, there's news today that has nothing to do with this game against the Cardinals. Please read my earlier posting for the latest news on Michael Morse, who it appears may not be ready for Opening Day.
But as for today's game, Gio Gonzalez is on the mound facing the World Series champion Cardinals. Not too many regulars in the Nationals lineup. Rick Ankiel is here. So is Wilson Ramos. Otherwise, it's backups and guys trying to make the roster.
Plenty of updates to come right here, so please check back often…
