Red Sox Minor Lines 5/4, 5/5: Cutting Back

As Minor Lines has gone on, it's become a bit bloated, I feel. Too many guys who don't ever project to impact the team and are sort of long shots for the majors. As a result, I'm cutting back some, removing a few guys from the unwritten list to get rid of clutter. To give you an idea of who I'm talking about, think quadruple-A types (Daniel Nava), guys who have never really shown anything despite potential (Michael Almanzar), and quite a few mid-level pitchers (Eammon Portice). 

Just letting you know.
