I have no idea if he would be ready to be AJ's backup in 2009. All I do know is that although it would be nice to have AJ's backup bat right-handed, having two left-handed hitting catchers would open up other possibilities. Since there would be no reason to have them play based on the opposing pitcher, the Sox instead could have them play based on who the Sox pitcher is. For example, if Armstrong has a "strong arm" (get it? ), he might be a good match for the Sox starting pitcher with the greatest tendency to give up stolen bases.

The universe is the practical joke of the General at the expense of the Particular, quoth Frater Perdurabo, and laughed. The disciples nearest him wept, seeing the Universal Sorrow. Others laughed, seeing the Universal Joke. Others wept. Others laughed. Others wept because they couldn't see the Joke, and others laughed lest they should be thought not to see the Joke. But though FRATER laughed openly, he wept secretly; and really he neither laughed nor wept. Nor did he mean what he said.
