In response to Hfxsoxnut's comment:
I could be wrong, but I don't think you're going to find too many examples of a team with playoff hopes trading away their #1 catcher during the season.
I see it less about how the team is doing and more about how he is doing.
Salty sucks at throwing out runners, and Ks at an alarming rate. I'm sick to death of watching him throw the ball into the outfield, and I don't for a second believe that he's some wonderkind at handling pitchers.
But he might be a step up for some teams, and would represent a better allocation of resources if we had him off the payroll.
It's just not going to happen unless the team implodes. You're talking about making an inexperienced Lavarnway the #1 catcher, or co-catcher, in midseason, when our starting rotation has been doing better than most of us expected.
