Is is just me, or does it seem that every single year, whenever we go west, we can't buy a ballgame? I don't have actual statistics, but I'd bet a dollar or two that our record is pretty poor on the West Coast the past few years. I just don't get it. Is it the weather? The time difference? It's mind boggling.

At least we are getting a little bit of the west out of the way early in the season.
