Today’s game may challenge your dexterity with a remote control, or your ability to pretend like you are working. Opposite the NCAA tournament, the Nationals will face the Tigers in a Grapefruit League game that will feature Stephen Strasburg squaring off against Prince Fielder. That is not bad. As chance would have it, today’s game can be seen live on MASN.

The Nationals are sticking with their everyday lineup again. Davey Johnson  said the regulars will get a breather tomorrow when the Nationals travel to Port St. Lucie to play the Mets. Drew Smyly is on the mound for Detroit.
