Your Opening Night Grapefruit League lineup

Without further ado:

Cristian Guzman -- SS
Felipe Lopez -- 2B
Lastings Milledge -- CF
Nick Johnson -- 1B
Wily Mo Pena -- LF
Alex Escobar -- DH
Elijah Dukes -- RF
Kory Casto -- 3B
Chad Moeller -- C

Matt Chico -- P

As we said before, Garrett Mock will follow Chico. The Nationals bus has arrived here in Jupiter, adn the team is on the field getting ready to stretch. And I hate to whine (actually, I love it), but it's cold here. Should be about 40 degrees in the early part of the game.

Jim Bowden, Bob Boone, Squire Galbreath and Brian Parker from the Nats front office, along with James Williams -- Elijah Dukes's mentor -- are all here for the festivities even though it's nearly two hours down I-95.

And before I head back down to the field, a huge congratulations to my man Dave Sheinin, who took two top-10 finishes in the Associated Press Sports Editors annual writing contest. Sheinin placed in the top 10 in features for his memorable profile of then-Reds outfielder Josh Hamilton last January or February, and also landed in the top 10 for game stories for his Game 4 of the World Series tome. The placing will be announced later.
