We've made it to the end of the Florida portion of the Blue Jays spring training schedule. The team gets tomorrow off, likely to enjoy the sites (and bars) of Montreal and then they have games at the Big O Friday and Saturday. And then, the season starts. YAY.

The excitement of watching fake Jays play ended (at least for me) a couple of weeks ago, but today's game is on MLB.TV so I'll likely watch the first few innings. The team has brought some of their major league bullpen members on the trip, so we there will be a few guys that we recognize play an inning.
