It’s snowing in D.C., and it’s raining down in Florida, putting today’s game in Lakeland at least somewhat in jeopardy. If they do get started, it’ll be Tanner Roark on the mound for the Nationals, going up against a Tigers lineup that today includes Torii Hunter and Miguel Cabrera.
Several Nats regulars made the trip. That includes Bryce Harper (hitting cleanup), Ian Desmond (once again hitting second) and Ryan Zimmerman (who after making his first-ever appearance at first base yesterday is serving as DH today).
Enjoy the game (it’s on Tigers radio today) and the conversation…
UPDATE AT 1:55 P.M. — The game has been rained out. It won’t be made up, so the Nationals (who were already scheduled to be off tomorrow) won’t be on the field again til Wednesday night.
