Good morning from Goodyear, where I’m starting to see a lot of NASCAR haulers parked at some nearby hotels. The Phoenix race on the Sprint Cup schedule is Sunday, which happens to be the first day of Reds exhibition play.
Got some pitching assignments for the intrasquad game and the first few Cactus League games.
