At 1:05PM today, Wilson Ramos is penciled in to catch Stephen Strasburg with a line-up that looks to be very close to what’s projected for Opening Day! Blake Treinen should also pitch today and go 2 innings with Michael Brady, Oliver Perez, Nick Lee and Felipe Rivero all scheduled to pitch today. Both Tyler Moore and Clint Robinson will start the game as CRob will be the DH. Rendon will bat 2nd as Dusty won’t be stacking his lefties.

Stephen Strasburg RHP
The #Nats optioned RHPs AJ Cole & Abel De Los Santos to Triple-A Syracuse & reassigned RHPs Austin Voth & Wander Suero to Minor League camp. This follows the cuts from yesterday.
Charlie Slowes and Dave Jaegler have your radio call today, but note that the game is not on the flagship 106.7FM and will be heard on 1580AM as well as on your MLB App.
An additional note that Jonathan Papelbon was not feeling good yesterday which was the reason he did not pitch.
The debate rages on about “Baseball Being Tired” after Bryce Harper’s comments were released by ESPN the Magazine yesterday, and DonH as linked in the previous article several quotes in favor of Bryce’s view.
