    Salty

    Right now, he's looking pretty decent to me.  His "CERA" is coming steadily down, he threw a basestealer out yesterday (granted, a pitchout, but the pitcher was Wake, who can't throw harder than 73MPH), and his hitting is better.  And Tek can still be a useful backup, catching 1 or 2 games out of five.

    He's better than Crawford

    Max- Yeah, in my spacey eyes, the verdict is still out.  Mid-month I was in the "Texas already knew what we are finding out" camp, but since then he has actually shown some maturity and skill as a catcher and shown enough spark with the bat that i am giving the experiment more time 'til I write it off as a clunker.

    spaceman, your analysis is clearer than mine.  Jury is definitely still out, but there is hope while they are deliberating.  If you're defending Salty, longer is better.

    Yup....he's got his BA 4 points over the mendoza line and threw a baserunner out on a PITCHOUT. Definitely signs that he's the catcher of the future.

    Geez this is some funny stuff.

    Yes, it was a pitchout--great call--but it was thrown by a guy whose fastball tops out at 73 mph.  We still got guys (Cameron, Scutaro, Crawford, McDonald, and Tek) under the mendoza line, so getting past it is progress.

    Babe, perspective is everything:  When 4 points over mendoza and a throw out or two is actually a vast improvement over recent production, you might not think it so laughable.  HELP US SALTY-WAN, YOU'RE OUR ONLY HOPE!!

    (That being said, in your barb, you failed to mention his good ... gulp ... CERA)

    Re: Salty

    He's looking pretty good both at and behind the plate.  Most importantly, the Sox are 5-2 in his last 7 starts, and the staff has given up only 15 runs in that span.  We can start putting to rest the notion that Varitek is the only guy they can pitch to.
