    Photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER Jason Marquis is slated to throw five innings today. VIERA, Fla. — It's another cloudy, windy day in Florida. What a horrible spring weather-wise.

  4. A clarification

    Mar 22, 2010, 1:20 PM EDT

    I wrote on Saturday that The Washington Times sent a reporter to Viera to cover Friday night’s game who did not appear in the Nationals’ clubhouse yet published quotes from pitcher Stephen Strasburg’s session with several media members. I have since been informed the reporter paid his own way to Florida and did not travel…

    Photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER John Lannan was sharp today during his five innings.

  6. Riggleman: No Guzman at 2B

    Mar 21, 2010, 3:51 PM EDT

    Photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER If Cristian Guzman's in the lineup, he'll be at shortstop. JUPITER, Fla. — Despite lingering concerns over the status of Cristian Guzman's right shoulder, the Nationals are not considering moving him to second base.

  8. Concern about Guzman?

    Mar 20, 2010, 8:47 PM EDT

    Photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER The state of Cristian Guzman's right shoulder remains a question. VIERA, Fla. — For all the attention Stephen Strasburg, Drew Storen and plenty of other pitchers have received this spring, perhaps the guy we should have been watching more closely since day one was a guy we all…

    Mar 20, 2010, 4:34 PM EDT

    Photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER Garrett Mock allowed three runs and six hits in five innings. VIERA, Fla. — Obviously, the big news of the day (the demotion of Stephen Strasburg and Drew Storen to Class AA Harrisburg) has already happened. But there's still a game to be played, and there are compelling…
