Today's Grapefruit League game between the Washington Nationals and St. Louis Cardinals from the Cards' Spring home, Roger Dean Stadium in Jupiter, Florida, will be broadcast live on MLB.tv and shown on the MLB Network though that broadcast is delayed until later today. The Cardinals' also have radio coverage if you're limited to MLB Gameday Audio, or it's available through Sirius/XM's MLB coverage on ch. 186. Nats' 26-year-old left-hander Gio Gonzalez makes his fourth start of the Spring this afternoon. The lineup Gonzalez will have behind him this afternoon is made up of mostly veterans, some of whom are battling for roles on the Nats' 2012 roster. Steve Lombardozzi is in the lineup at least, atop the order and playing short this afternoon and Wilson Ramos is behind the plate...
