Here's the latest from Nationals (or whatever they're naming it) Park.

Farewell, Nationals Park
Well, not exactly. But, to make up for some lost cashflow (looking at you MASN), the Nationals will sell the naming rights to Nationals Park. So begins the predicting - what company will put their name on the front of what we know as Nationals Park? Geico? AMTRAK? Sirius XM? DC Brau? The U.S. Government?

Gio Gonzalez's baby is obviously a good luck charm
In his first game back, the lefty pitched 4 1/3 innings with only one run allowed. You may begin your MVP chants for Enzo (Gio's baby).

On a team full of veterans, Trea Turner and MAT are more vital than ever.
The players have proved themselves this spring, but the question still remains: will the dynamic duo will play.
