 I went to Europe during the offseason before last for a tour of Navy bases in Spain, Italy and Greece, and I’ve been to Mexico, Canada and the U.S. Virgin Islands, too, and this offseason I went to Tahiti. Traveling wasn’t something I used to be really into, but now I think it’s pretty cool to go around the world and experience a lot of different things, and I’ve never been to the Far East, so I think Japan’s going to be pretty different for a Kentucky boy.

It’s exciting, but it’ll probably be a little bit difficult to balance enjoying the culture and the experience of being over there with staying focused on getting prepared for my start, getting my rest and getting used to the time change. Luckily, we’re over there for a few days before my start, so that should help. We have some team things lined up, so I’ll get to enjoy those, and we have those two exhibition games before mine, so it’s not like I’ll be walking into that stadium for the first time on Opening Day. I’ll have a couple days to get used to everything.
