    Reds negotiating with Vero Beach?

    Certainly, the Reds should be doing due diligence with the Sarasota deal looking bleak, so this makes a lot of sense. And I feel strongly the Reds are the team in question.

    The lowest acceptable payroll amount for ownership to show they are not greedy pigs is 15 million more than they are currently paying. No matter what that currently is.

    Wow, maybe they'll change the name from Dodgertown to Redsland?

    Dodgertown is still one of my all time favorite Spring Training sites. Just a tremendous facility.
    It's absolutely pathetic that people can't have an opinion from actually watching games and supplementing that with stats. If you voice an opinion that doesn't fit into a black/white box you will get completely misrepresented and basically called a tobacco chewing traditionalist...

    I would be extremely happy if this happens.

    Well, I'm 100 miles south of Vero Beach now.

    Much closer than Sarasota for me.

    Sarasota isn't that far from you now. Plus you get to ride across Alligator alley.....

    My kids have a two-week spring break in March and we have in-laws who just love to have us come visit. Vero Beach is only 45 minutes down the road. With kids, it's much easier to get away for a ballgame if it's just for the afternoon instead of having to block out a whole day to go cross-state and back.

    My GF is a Braves fan so we split a Spring Training visit between Braves and reds. As we are Annual passholders at Disney we typically stay there. I am guessing the drive to Vero from Lake Buena Vista is lightly shorter than the one to Sarasota.
    Nothing to see here. Please disperse.

    By the way.... next most likely (in my opinion) destination for Reds (after Vero) is splitting time with Braves at Disney

    See, thats what I'm talking about. My parents live outside of Orlando and usually I go to Winter haven for some Indians games. This would be perfect for me.

    I'd be fine with Orlando too. Plenty to do up there to payoff Mrs. '62 for putting up with my baseball habit.

    Same here. It's also easily accessible from the Melbourne area... Disney... kids... slam dunk.
