They paid exactly half his contract this year without a sniff of the major leagues. If your theory is true, why wouldn't they have brought him up as a September call up? He's already on the 40-man roster, and they would lose nothing.

Lip's source is interesting, but I just can't see it. They're going to make a spot on the team for him? Doubtful as he hasn't shown any consistency and still doesn't have a position. Maybe they're anticipating a huge AFL and Spring Training, but even then, I doubt they leave a starting position for him.

BTW, Lip, is your source within the Sox organization or an outsider?
