Not only is Bernadina playing CF, he's leading off. Expect more bunts. Let's hope he does well.

We'll also get our first look at Ankiel and Nix.

Wonder how much influence Bo Porter has had on the baserunning. Apparently, after he was hired, he called the Nats' baserunning in past years "pathetic" (he was Marlins' 3B coach in 2007-09) and has been running special baserunning drills this spring.

Interesting that Morgan sits against the Marlins. Is Riggleman concerned about carry over from last year?
