The time has come. My flight to Boston leaves tonight and I have tickets in hand for all three games. Time for a vacation and a little baseball. I am really excited about this, and if anyone else is making the trip to watch this series too, I will be updating this post with bar suggestions for pregaming - so check back soon. If anyone already has plans then let me know where to go, and maybe I'll show up and buy you a beer (that is, if you don't care about preserving your anonymity). Go Padres!
