The camp getting the most attention from the national media so far is Boston.

It is amazing how Atlanta had a collapse almost as bad and it was ignored ( even though it allowed St. Louis into the playoffs which of course they won )

Boston is a mess and the players are already making comments that has the Boston media on attack.

I can't wait to see the new Red Sox park in Ft. Myers. One nice touch that the scoreboard that was used at Fenway from 1976-2001 is now in Florida.

The Twins are not happy with Lee County as Boston gets a new park after 19 years and they don't.

Can you blame them? They sell out Hammond Stadium on a regular basis.

Red Sox lease was up and Sarasota wanted them badly.

Now the City of Fort Myers has a lovely 19 year old ballpark vacant.

Attention Tucson City Fathers: You can call the Twins (and other teams unhappy with their ST locales) anytime now.

Would any team really be willing to move to Tucson? One of the nice things about Arizona ST is that everything is centrally located in the Phoenix area so travel is a lot easier. I don't see why a team would want to set up 2 hours away from everyone else in the Cactus League.
