Ah, the split-squad game, one of the great rites of spring training. Today the Nationals embark on their first of two split-squad journeys this month.
VIERA, Fla. -- Davey Johnson last watched Chien-Ming Wang pitch in a game situation at the Nationals' minor-league complex here in December 2010.
VIERA, Fla. -- Given how much he's already been through since he was drafted by the Nationals, it's easy to forget how little spring training experience Stephen Strasburg has.
VIERA, Fla. -- We've all been blessed so far this spring with beautiful weather, the best I can remember in the eight years the Nationals have trained here. Until today, that is.
VIERA, Fla. -- It had been quite some time since Matt Purke felt quite like this on the mound.
