After three straight days of visuals, it's somewhat disappointing to be back to radio broadcasts only this afternoon, but it is a chance to listen to C&D call the action as the Washington Nationals take on the Miami Marlins today in Grapefruit League action live from Jupiter, Florida's Roger Dean Stadium. Max Scherzer is on the mound this afternoon opposite former Nationals' starter Dan Haren, who was traded to the Fish this winter and after initial reluctance has decided to stick with it and play on the east coast again after his time in the nation's capital was tough. The Nationals are sending a mix of bench options, non-roster invitees and up-and-comers to Jupiter for this afternoon's 1:05 PM EDT game.
Here's the Nationals' lineup for today's matchup:

Washington Post writer Chelsea Janes posted the Marlins' lineup this morning:

Max Scherzer makes his second start of the Spring after giving up a run on two hits in his Grapefruit League and Nationals debut last week. Shame we don't get to watch this one, but we'll see what Charlie and Dave have to say about the action, which is available on WJFK 1580 FM and through MLB.com's GameDay audio.
Who's listening to the Nationals?
