You gotta love Jamie. He could be a back-up catcher on so many teams yet he chooses to stay on our AAA. Anyone know if Davis is in AAA?

Good luck Jaime. Fortunate enough to have met him the past two Sox Fest's and he seemed to be good guy. Especially this past January where the writing was on the wall that he would not make the team after the Sox signed AJ. He showed up at Soxfest and did not make waves. Once again good luck Jaime and I hope we see you up with the big team soon.

Burke cleared waivers, which means that no other MLB team wanted him on their roster. He chose to stay on our AAA instead of playing for somebody else's AAA team. Davis is injured.
