    This would be the year to go OBM. Next year it's a long trip. Too long for me unless I get to retire several (many) years down the road. Have a good time and send me a postcard

    I can't even begin to describe how excited I am about this trip. I guess the only downside is I won't get a chance to see some of the stars like Cueto, Volquez, and Votto since they're all participating in the World Baseball Classic.

    Anyone else going?

    Congratulations OBM. Enjoy your trip!

    Enjoy, OBM. Soak up the sun, the ST vibe and the everybody-plays games. You'll be there at a good time, when there are still lots of players in camp.

    Have a great time OBM! Hopefully you'll post some reports here for us either while you're down there or when you get back!

    Yep. I'm hoping to see some of the minors leaguers like Frazier, Soto, and Stubbs among others. I might try to slip over to the minor league field and catch a glimpse of Juan Duran and Yorman Rodriguez.

    It's kind of weird for me. I'm on the East Coast and have never been to ST. I thought this would be my last chance, but I'm now taking a job on the West Coast. The problem is I'm too busy arranging the move (and moving) to go to ST.
