It’s official — we’re just 11 days away from the start of Spring Training! What does that mean? Manager Jim Riggleman and his staff of pitchers and catchers are on the field at Space Coast Stadium in Viera, Florida RIGHT NOW playing “catch” for the first time as a team this season.

First-round draft pick Stephen Strasburg and the other newly acquired pitching talent including Matt Capps, Jason Marquis, Brian Bruney and Chien-Ming Wang are all in attendance and ready to go. Let’s get this season started!

  1. We have a bright future but we also have a LOT of issues that need to be dealt with before we actually compete for the playoffs

    Our SP is still suspect
    Our RP is very average to be nice
    Our hitting can be good but can be shut down with good pitching

  2. And I already have my ticket for Opening Day! Even though I’m a Phillies fan, I’ve never missed a Nats home opener.
