Anyone else head or headed to ST this year?

My brother is out there this week, hobbling around on a freshly torn Achilles. I kind of envy him, but also not.

Last time #Cubs were defending World Series champions, they held spring training in Shreveport, LA (1909)

I, for one, am glad they've moved to Mesa.

Not a big ST fan, although I am a fan of being some place warm in March. We went to Captiva last week, so I did see a lot of Twins and Red Sox fans around (both are in Fort Myers). I was just glad to go for an entire week not wearing socks.

I love the Captiva area. My parents snowbird on Sanibel for a month or two each winter, and I love visiting them. Such a laid-back pace of life.

Eloy Jimenez bone bruise right shoulder, will rest for three weeks

Probably worth mentioning how great Happ has been this spring. He looked really good in what I saw. Guess we shouldn't be surprised if he makes an appearance with the big league team this year.

Just got back from a weekend in Phoenix.

Saw Padres beat Angels 6-2 on Thursday in Peoria, then Friars lost to Rangers 4-3 on Friday in Surprise.

Saturday saw KC beat MIL 1-0 at Surprise in extras on Mondesi HR that apparently won him the starting job coming out of ST.

Went to Sloan Park last year and really liked it. Hate Diablo where the Angels play, there is no shade at all anywhere in that damned park.

Like Surprise Stadium where I saw two games this year.

As to looking at the teams, hardly any starters for any teams played in the games I was at so can't really tell anything.

Was kind of funny in the game Friday - Padres had two lefties at the top of the lineup against a lefty starter for Texas, ensuring that there would be almost zero opportunities for the 3-4-5 hitters to come up with runners on base.

Gotta say it works really well taking uber to games around Phoenix area - cheaper than cabs and all the drivers I had showed up in about 3 minutes flat.
