Over the last few days the Jays have parted ways with several members of our scouting and development staff. Gone are Scouting Director Brian Parker, National Crosschecker Blake Davis, and Minor League Field Co-ordinator Doug Davis.

We at Da Box want to thank Mr. Parker and Messrs. Davis for their contributions to the organization. The loss of Doug Davis, in particular, will be a tough pill to swallow for Bauxites. The Doug Davis interviews were always one of the more popular and informative instalments. In fact, I think the first Batter's Box article I read was an interview between Gerry and Doug Davis. I was hooked. From all of us, thank you and best of luck!
