    Finally getting into some games. Also means we are only a month away from the start of the regular season. Who will be starting the first ST game?

    Excited to see Castro go against semi-big league pitching also praying for Castro to take the catching position to avoid another sub .200 season from JR.

    I'd rather have towles start the season as catcher and bring up Castro Early may if Towles struggles. I hope they do it that way just like they did with Hunter Pence so he goes down AAA gets his confidence up then is ready for the call up

    I'm actually more excited to see Bourne & Maysonet improve from last year, and see what Manzella has on this stage. I sort of see them are being more important to determining if the 'stros can be solid in the next few years.

    Just saw the box score.

    Nice offensive showing so far.

    Is there anyway to view this game ?

    I'm watching MLB TV right now, but they are showing the mets game.

    That is impressive. I had heard he worked hard on improving his strength his offseason.

    I think it's $100 for the right to even listen to the games on line for just Spring Training.

    44ABs and 0 walks. I realize the Nats squad must have been throwing a lot of balls down the pipe to give up 21 hits, but you have to think someone would walk.

    Not that these games mean a ton, but Wandy must have thought he was Mark Felt today.

    Roy pitches today and Carlos makes his spring debut.

    Roy has loaded the bases with 0 out in the first inning

    Interesting a 3-0 shutout.

    I thought shutouts weren't allowed in spring training...
