Who's got a case of the Mondays? Time to call in sick in buddy, and pay $15 to super-size that weekend. It's an easy drive up to Roger Dean Stadium in Jupiter to catch a Florida Marlins Spring Training Game against the Washington Nationals.
The World Baseball Classic it ain't, but for the purists out there, it doesn't get any better than a hot dog, a scorecard, and trying to figure out which of these no-names is going to win the lottery and warm the end of the Miami bench.
Even with Adam Dunn, the Nats aren't getting out of the NL East basement, but your Fish could make waves this year. Start your fan-dom early and feel like your tax dollars went somewhere when Loria and Samson ram a concrete behemoth down your throat in 2012.
