Spring Training Thread

Recommended Posts

Anybody else attending this year? I already bought flight tickets and game tickets, so I will be attending regardless. I'm going to enjoy it as much as I can. I'll be there in a week and some change. You'll see me with a paper bag on my head. 

 

Kind of disappointed in the forecasted weather. High of 70. Expected more because it is Arizona, but it is still winter I suppose. Should still be a hell of a time with my friends. Looking forward to the atmospher more than anything. 

 

Who's going?

I'm on the fence, we booked hotel but it is refundable.  This Machado thing really a gut punch.

Suppose to be there March 12-15, going to be our 3rd year in a row so it's kind of tradition now.

I doubt anyone else here is attending Cubs spring training. 

Nobody is going to the Cubs vs Sox spring training game next weekend? You don't know that. Quit lying

 It's a different kind of 70 in the desert.  I found CB Ranch to be uncomfortable in the 80's.

Hope it isn't too hot when I'm wearing my Yonder Alonso and Jon Jay signed bag over my head

The original problem is still the same — “same FO staff from 2008.”

No one has any confidence in Hahn, Kenny, and JR to seize the opportunity and spend money when a perfect time like now becomes available to bring the rebuild to the next level of tacking on established talent.

 That is the best form of shade at the Ranch.

yeah...that sun popped out yesterday and I was hot.  First time ever NOT wearing shorts to a spring training game... since it was a tad cool at my house. Got to the park and the sun came out and I was hot. Burned the shit out of my face too!  Remember that sunscreen!!!!!

I know that no one wants to hear this now, but I also haven't seen this said before. 

 

I'd like to see some front office development and a world of changes there.
