Davis sent to minors today

It was overdue, but finally the M's did SOMETHING. Ben Davis is being sent down, after hitting .088 combined with a miserable spring.

My only problem is the fact the best the M's can do is bring up Pat Borders, he of the .235 with no power club. Borders is popular in the clubhouse, and Garcia likes him, but it shows how barren the organization is for catchers.

I'd have FAR rather seen the M's bring up Rene Rivera over a 40 year old back-up.

A further clue the M's don't have one regarding how to evaluate young talent, or understand what the minors are for.
