We're closing in on the southwest itinerary now—but because of the distances involved (and because there are a couple time-consuming nonbaseball attractions, about which more later), it's going to be our least baseball-dense trip ever. Here's how it's shaping up:
Thursday, 4/28: Las Vegas 51s / Sacramento River Cats
Saturday, 4/30: Arizona Diamondbacks / Chicago Cubs
Sunday, 5/1: Tucson Padres / Colorado Springs SkySox
Tuesday, 5/3: Albuquerque Isotopes / Omaha Storm Chasers
Possible bonus game, Wednesday, 5/4: Las Vegas 51s / Reno Aces
Two games a week apart in Las Vegas? Only the need to return the rental car makes this sensible at all....
