Good to have the Nats back on Sunday night baseball for the first time since Nationals Park opened on March 30, 2008.

Surprisingly light on Phillies games. Curious.

3 Yankee and Ranger games. 2 Red Sox, Angels and Cardinals games.

And if the Nats don't arrange to have Strasburg just happen to be the starting pitcher that night, it might be 2018 before they get another shot at it.

What if he gets the start three weeks later?

They'd have to guarantee it with a $10 million penalty if it doesn't happen, with an added clause that guarantees Harper. (smile)

If the Nats get Prince Fielder (a cause aided immeasurably now that Yu is a Ranger, as Abbott & Costello might say), Washington will have sufficient star power for the worldwide leader.

Well, it looks like pretty much everybody on the planet knows the Cubs are gonna suck this year.

No Met games. ESPN must not have seen the exciting drawing cards they signed this off-season.
