    A ton of guys come straight from Double A to the ML's. RS have a penchant for that also. AA ball is just younger guys - talent rich-

    Not like AAA is the elite more a place for journeymen or storage of spare parts. Sometimes used to season guys. AA is more prepare and work on things ....but both leagues supply players.

    Pretty unlikely. If you look at the Sox M.O. for the past few seasons they have always tried to carry an handful of guys with MLB experience at PAW as emergency backups. Probably not more than that.

    I think that moving Scutaro is quite possible. I just doubt that it's the motivating force.

    This is definitely true. One guy (I forget who) characterized the difference between AAA and AA as the amount of MLB experience. The trend of direct promotions from AA has slowed in the last few years, though, as the emphasis on keeping club/cost controlled guys has increased. It still happens but not as frequently as it did in the mid 2000s.
