Nationals vs. Astros discussion thread: Game 21


(Matt Slocum/AP)

Fun game tonight in Viera. The Nationals have their full opening day lineup, complete with Stephen Strasburg on the mound and batting ninth for himself and Ryan Zimmerman at third base for the first time this spring. The Astros are throwing Lucas Harrell, and they brought along the 2012 first overall pick, Puerto Rican shortstop Carlos Correa. A coach watched Correa warm-up tonight, pointed at him and said, “That’s what A-Rod looked like at that age.”

You can watch tonight’s game on MASN, with F.P. Santangelo and Bob Carpenter in the house at Space Coast Stadium. Because it’s on TV, anyhow, we’ll do without the in-game updates. Talk about the game right here.
