The Cardinals might be trolling the Nationals. Today marks at least the third time since Game 5 of the 2012 NLDS that Adam Wainwright and Gio Gonzalez have met in a Grapefruit League game. The same matchup occurred five days ago.

The Nationals brought a solid lineup to Jupiter. Ryan Zimmerman, Denard Span and Adam LaRoche stayed back in Viera in order to take extra at-bats in a minor league game.
