Live, From Viera

Here at Curly W Live, we’ll be providing updates from on the ground in Viera and throughout the Grapefruit League as the Nationals make their way through the spring schedule. We’ll be talking to players and coaches, looking at all the storylines of March, especially those that might normally slip through the cracks. If you, the reader, have stories you’d like to see us cover, please let us know in the comments.

The team hits the road for a rare night game tonight, just under an hour south of their Space Coast home down in St. Lucie, as they will see the Mets for the first time this year. We’ll be on site for all the action and reaction to the game, and will provide some of the sites and sounds through Facebook and Twitter for you. For now, here is tonight’s lineup:

Bryce Harper's lone hit yesterday at Space Coast Stadium, an infield single to shortstop.

Roger Bernadina LF

Stephen Lombardozzi 2B

Mark Teahan 3B

Chad Tracy 1B

Rick Ankiel CF

Bryce Harper RF

Jesus Flores C

Xavier Paul DH

Andres Blanco SS

John Lannan LHP


The Nationals look for their first official win of the spring tonight. Here are their results to date:

vs. Georgetown (exhibition) – W, 3-0

@ Houston – L, 3-1

vs. Houston – L, 10-2

@ New York (NL) – Tonight, 6:10pm

Overall Record: 0-2


We all have great hopes for the Nationals this year. I know it’s early in Spring Training but it sure would be nice to see them win a game (even though it means little) or at least not get crushed like they did against the Astros in the second game. Wouldn’t it be nice, for once, to force the sports talk jocks to talk about something other than the NFL.

Bryce Harper beat out a routine ground ball to third…. i had no clue he was that fast
