At long last we know what the venue will be for the Winter Classic on January 1st, 2015, and it’s exactly where we thought it’d be: Nationals Park! Alex Prewitt of the Washington Post broke the news on the Twitter machine.
A deal has been finalized for Nationals Park to host the 2015 Winter Classic on Jan. 1, sources tell me and @mikedebonis.

The news ends months of uncertainty around the big game. Despite rumors of quibbling over the details, Nats Park was always the obvious choice. It’s inside the district, it’s beautiful (inspired by Baltimore’s Camden Yards!), it’s not completely falling apart, and its baseball team isn’t owned by a jerk.
