Spring Training: It's Coming

Can you feel it? The weather is changing (at least here is SoCal) and last time I checked, Spring follows Winter. In the 619, we've had San Diego Padres player sightings. The D'Backs signed Bronson Arroyo. Pitchers and catchers report in 2 weeks. Time to lace 'em up.

I'll be taking my annual pilgrimage to the Valley of the Sun and I'm penciling in 4 games in 3 days. A doubleheader with the D'Backs at Talking Stick, then a couple games with the Giants taking on the D'Backs and Padres in Scottsdale Stadium. 

My trip will be full of teams from the NL West and there is no other way I'd rather have it. The only teams I'm missing are the Dodgers and Rockies. We all know the Rockies will suck and LA, well, they are LA. Monsterous payroll and a serious pitching staff. Plus Roid Rage Puig.

I'm most looking forward to the beautiful weather, ice cold beer and my favorite smells of Spring (fresh cut grass, sunscreen lotion and grilled Brats). That and the chance to catch a foul ball. See you there.
