Fill the tank with gas, grab some cash out of the ATM, don't forget the hat and sunscreen, and you're all set to go. Now all you need is a plan. We're here to help, laying out a game to watch for every day of spring training, one that takes you to all homes of the 18 teams. So, enjoy. — Tom Jones/tbt*
