With the official end of the Super Bowl 50, MLB posted up a tweeter to let us all know what we already knew that it’s “Let’s Go” time!

Mike Rizzo spilled the beans at the Hot Stove event that the Nats would be loading up the moving vans today for the trek from Nats Park to Spacecoast Stadium in Viera and the 890 miles that stand between the 2 stadiums.
Bryce replaces that Washington Redskins cap with this new style Spring Training cap that the Washington Nationals will wear in their final Spring in Viera Florida before the move to West Palm Beach:
The first player to arrive in Viera was none other than Clint Robinson who tweeted from Viera on February 1st. CRob enters this Spring Training as a virtual lock to make the Nats roster if healthy!

This Spring brings in some new names to be alongside Max Scherzer and Stephen Strasburg with the biggest name being Lucas Giolito and veterans like Bronson Arroyo.
There could still be a roster move made before the official start of Spring Training, and for right now, here is the 40 man roster:
UPDATED 2/8/2016 12:35pm: Just as Rizzo said on Saturday at the Hot Stove event, the moving vans would be loading up for Viera. One note is the Vans are logo’d in Nats and it is Victory Van Lines instead of JK Moving and Storage.

According to weather reports, snow is on it’s way to the DC region and hopefully the vans will be loaded and on their way south before the inclement weather lands.
