    Headed to Spring Training Arizona

    Won't have much internet access for the next five days. Going to see 5 games in 4 days. Leaving today. Hoping BenjiPla sees the trade I sent him and accepts soon. lol and the FA I sent an offer to hurries up and accepts his contract.

    Will be fun to pbp viewer all the games when I get back to see how all these new players in Trips uniforms perform, we shall see If we can close that 4 gm. gap a bit for the last playoff spot in Robert Jamerson. Mets and Divided currently tied for 1st at the top. Should be fun!!!

    Thanks Tal,
    Had a blast with my son. We saw 45 innings of baseball in 4 days. Got a ton of autographs. Saw 5 different baseball Spring Training facilities. Scottsdale Stadium, Camelback Ridge, Salt River Fields, Peoria, and Tempe Diablo.

    Was able to see McCutchen and Longoria play on the Giants. Got a baseball card autographed by Christian Yelich on his new team the Brewers. Watched Clayton Kershaw take the bump and pitch two clean innings vs. the White Sox.

    Then, went to a night game where the Angels played the Mariners.

    Last day we saw a home game where the regulars were in vs. the Colorado Rockies. Got to see Trout. Pujols, Cozart , Kinsler, Simmons, Shoemaker vs. Charlie Blackmon and Nolan Arenando. Plus, there we got a 20 signatures on a hat and baseball and were able to talk to players like the Angels #2 prospect, 20 yr. old Jaimai Jones, plus Eric Young Jr. took a picture with my boy and he stuck it on Instagram and he actually "liked" the photo of him and my boy, which my boy thought was really cool! David Fletcher the B team SS we saw player really well and get an autograph from. The Angels 1B prospect Matt Thaiss hit a HR and a Double in the 1st game and then hit another one vs. the M's in the night game. He looks to be ready to join the club in the couple of years.

    That's awesome!! Spring training is on my bucket list and to let you know how well I married, it's on my wife's bucket list as well. May I ask what it costs to attend a spring training game?

    Re: Headed to Spring Training Arizona

    the seats are as low as 15 on the lawn to about 50 right behind home plate. I suggest spending the extra if you can, for us- it's a chance to sit behind scouts and during the season...we don't even sniff home plate. You did marry well, that I can tell you. Any chick that likes to hang out at a ballpark is a keeper.

    The hotels all know it's Spring Training. We were lucky enough to know a friend. I've never been disappointed to any Spring Training events I've went to. Just really great atmosphere to be around.

    Feel the same way. And all the recent trades, our division is improving by leaps and bounds and am captivated by how this division is back and forth and just getting more and more interesting as the race winds to an amazing finish!

    Divided ended up winning their last 6 to not only sneak in but to almost take the division.

    First round of the playoffs will be interesting. We took the first two on the road but knowing how this season finished i wont be surprised if this thing goes to 7 games.
