Some interesting quotes from Mirabelli in today's Boston Herald.
There's been some controversy (albeit a small one) on whether using a police officer to rush a catcher was a good use of public resources. Well, the Sox paid $160 to do it, and they do it all the time (even if it's usually in the other direction).
Also, the plane landed in Kansas City to refuel and they kept the load very light:
"We had to keep the weight down," Mirabelli joked. "God forbid Curt Schilling were on that flight, we never would have made it."
Mirabelli’s house had been occupied by outfielder Gabe Kapler, but the catcher said that "when he heard I was coming back, he packed up."
