Hey what's going on guys? I just woke up in Winston-Salem, North Carolina after arriving late last night around 11:30 PM. We left Boston around 8:30 AM yesterday morning and started our journey to Viera, Florida for the start of Spring Training. A lot of people are telling me I'm nuts for driving my car all the way down there for only a month and a half of Spring Training, but I drove the 45 hours to Peoria, Arizona last year, so driving 22 to Florida will be cake.

On our drive to Spring Training last year we made sure when we mapped out our trip we selected a bunch of cities we thought it would be cool to stop at and do a little sight seeing. This year we're only really stopping in two cities along the way. Yesterday, we decided to make an hour pit stop in Baltimore, Maryland. We'd never been there before, but the main reason we decided to go a little out of our way to stop there was for the food. Spending most of my time in the Southwest over the last few years we've grown very fond of the restaurant Ra Sushi. If you've never been there and like sushi you have to make sure to stop by. I'm not crazy about the real sushi with the raw fish and stuff, but the Tootsi Maki rolls are to die for.

After making an hour stop there we jumped back in the car and continued our trip down to Winston-Salem, North Carolina to make a stop at Wake Forest University where I went to school and played baseball from 2004-2006. It has been about four years since I've been there, and even though everyone I went to school with has now moved on to the real world I am still excited to go back and see how much things have changed. Also, Laura has never been to Wake, so she was also excited to see what life was like for me back in my college days. We will probably take a little tour around campus and then stop in and say hello to the new coaching staff. When we're done we'll be getting back on the road for the remaining ten hours to Florida. I'll speak with everyone when I arrive to camp. Have a great day!

    I'll have to give Ra Sushi a try. I think we have it here in Las Vegas too!
