Ranking the AL East Position by Position: Catcher | BoSox Injection
This Red Sox blog ranks Matt Wieters as the second best catcher in the A.L. East behind Brian McCann. I think that's fair. I totally forgot until I read this that the Red Sox signed A.J. Pierzynski.

Schoop to miss Fanfest; Chen takes his place at one autograph session -
If you were hoping to see Jonathan Schoop at FanFest, his passport expired. Oops. He better get that taken care of before Spring Training starts.

Adam Jones is just flying around in private jets, so he stopped to pick up Manny on the way. Manny isn't rich enough for private jets yet.

Today is the birthday of former Orioles Paul Blair, Kent Mercker, Rich Becker, and Joe Mahoney.

On this day in 2010, Jon Miller won the Ford Frick Award, the best award you can get as a baseball broadcaster.
