Series Preview: Nationals @ Cubs

DC Sports Nexus ---- Thursday, April 5, 2012

The wait is over.  The excitement is coming to a head.  It is time to start the Washington Nationals hyped up 2012 season!

The Nationals start the year off with a 3 game set against the Chicago Cubs at Wrigley.
  • Thursday (2:20pm) Strasburg vs Dempster
  • Saturday (1:05pm) Gonzalez vs Garza
  • Sunday (2:30pm) Zimmermann vs Samardjiza
We already discussed how the Nationals will be starting off the season without Morse & Ankiel and the Season Preview covered most of the initial fielding and batting issues for the Nats.

The Cubs were 71-91 last season which wasn't far worse than the Nationals.  However while the Nats made some big offseason moves and got a few guys back healthy, the Cubs haven't made any drastic improvements.

As the season goes on these previews will get better...
