I'm excited for this early season series in Cincy between two of the best teams in the NL. Both teams lost heartbreaking Game 5s in last years NLDS. The Sunday pitching matchup between Strasburg and Cueto should be fun. After years of last place finishes, how much talent the Nationals have assembled is astounding. Mostly young players that are under team control for years. It seems to mask the fact that the shelled out $100 million for Jayson Werth. Looks like tonight's game will be Haren vs. Bailey. Bailey had a breakout year last year, and Haren is back in the NL after a few seasons in LA. This should be another good measuring stick for both teams, especially Washington since they opened with the hapless Marlins.
