I've always been a tradition guy and that's why I chose Florida but it doesn't seem to me that Florida cities are really trying all that much to keep spring training baseball from going to Arizona, slowly but surely one team at a time.
With the offer Goodyear, Arizona has reportedly given to John Allen, it's looking like a strong probability to me that the Reds train there beginning in 2009 or 2010 at the latest but I do prefer Florida.
