that could very well be it.

 

I'm sure it has something to do with the talent is developed. of course, it could just be about money or money.

 

really isn't that big of news anyway, same prospects either way.

The Sox have been saying FOREVER that the air is way too thin in Arizona.

 

Maybe they want regular air so their pitchers don't get down on themselves.

Thats what I was thinking Cerb. First off the air will bolster the offensive production while killing pitchers confidence as well as stats. One real bad thing that can occur when a pitchers stats get inflated is they try to change the way they pitch and in turn could end up screwing themselves up.

As long as they don't move their spring training I'm happy.

 

I love seeing them come to Arizona. Now if they wanted to just practice at the baseball fields by my house, that would be a different story, lol.

Definately. You going to be out there for a while or like a couple days?

 

I know I'm going to be there for about 4 days, the only problem is I don't know when I'm going to be there till about 2 weeks before it happens cause I have to make sure I can skip a day of class, that way I get thurs,fri,sat,sun or fri,sat,sun,mon,tues something like that. Of course if I have a day off or spring break early, then it makes it a whole lot easier.

 

One thing for sure, you'll have a ton of fun there.
