    Did Saltalamacchia just....

    . . . allow a Toronto baserunner to steal 2d, 3d, and home (and still home as Salty was throwing the ball back to the pitcher)?

    This is a major league catcher?  moonslav keeps saying to dump him and keep Lavarnway in Boston, and right now that's making an awful lot of sense.

    Salty is a butcher behind the plate with a weak bat. He needs to be optioned to AAA. Lavarnway has much better and solid CS%, but also provides a much needed high potential RH slugging bat. Lavarnway is also mentally sharp.

    In the past many people commented on Teks importance to our club, which I have personally questioned the past few years, although I do feel Salty improved a bit under his watch.  Many of these same posters and various "sports writers" also stated Lav was very raw behind the plate and would probably never hit major league pitching like he had in the minors.  What happened to all those people?

    Lav was finally given the opportunity to show us how wrong many could be.  He proved to have more poise than many gave him credit for.  Like I said over a year ago, Lav is the real deal, has a good arm and bat, but like any youngster will make his share of mistakes along the way.

    It's just a matter of time before he breaks the starting lineup if Salty struggles and like many of us hope, could end up being our best "all round" catcher since Pudge if he continues to work hard.

    No, Salty didn't allow that to happen, but Shoppach did.

    Middle of the 6th: Jays 2, Red Sox 1: Ugly inning there. Gose reached on an error by Youkilis with one out. He stole second and went to third when Shoppach's throw sailed into center. Davis then walked and stole second. Thames followed with a two-run single to right. Gomes popped to right before Thames was thrown out stealing.

    They believed it was salty because much like you, many posters here don't even watch the games. But unlike you some of them can pick out which one is the baseball.

    Will Max, Hank, and Craze  return with egg on his faces and admit that they didn't do their homework?  Of course, it should be finally evident that Hank / softlaw / bigot is not a Red Sox fan.

    Just having fun, right Babe, as you said earlier too many here are much too serious. How about thirty more pictures of you with the parrot and fifty more quotes fron the soxsuck website. Life is too short , please troll some more so that we all can laugh some more. Many here have called you a troll  ( at least fifty) and you like to rationalize that by telling everyone that all fifty are really only one poster. LOLOL. One only needs to read the Realistic thread to see what the more intelligent think of you. You keep telling all that you are only "having fun" by trolling and the ignorant forget about the word "trolling". Problem is that you are 41 and those who fall for your routine are in assisted living.

    Sherlock Holmes you will never be. I am not 41.

    And who cares how many have called me a troll, more than half were probably your other monikers. You have been called a troll on numerous occasions. In fact, you are the very definition. Someone who comes here for the sole intent of disrupting the forum. Everyone can agree on that. 

    Except for calzoneuticaphilpikeftmeadelowelllsaysthis.

    I never have a problem facing predictions whether they come true or not.  Salty, in my opinion is beginning his career much like Varitek.  The Stats are very similar both offensively and defensively.  This doesn't necessarily mean they will have similar careers but its something to watch. 

    Having another catcher like Tek wouldn't necessarily be a bad thing but I just feel Lav has a higher ceiling than both Salty and Tek.  Whether he reaches that depends on a lot of things.   Even at his young age Lav could be called on at DH or catcher so he should get a nice opportunity to earn a starting role by next season and certainly deserves it.

    Re: Did Saltalamacchia just....

    You guys are borderline imbecilic. Yes, Shoppach was horrible and also gave up SBs. But I'm talking about the 8th inning when /Salty was catching. Go look at the box score you all should have looked at. Then read Peter Abraham's write-up, 8th inning, where he tells what happened. And, yes, it was spring training, but even in spring training real professionals should show at least minimal focus. Lavarnway has less experience, but much more seriousness of purpose and, dare I say it, smarts than Salty. And Lavarnway can hit, which Shoppach can't do. I think Bobby needs to dump one of the veteran catchers.

    Lavarnway may never be half the catcher Salty is. Lavarnway would DH when him and Federowiz were on the same roster. Lavarnway right now does not look like a career catcher.
