We all know the catcher situation in Boston. If Papi continues to struggle it is very possible that VMart will be seeing increased time at DH. Then there is also the question of VMart's defensive abilities. Tek has been doing well out of a backup role, but there is concern that with a increase in playing time he will lose his offensive pop. Even with VMart throwing out some runners lately, the Sox could still very well be in the market for a catcher.
The DBacks stud catcher Miguel Montero went on the DL earlier this season with a torn meniscus and is expected to be back in a month or two. Chris Snyder, who lost the starting spot to Montero last season, has been playing well in replacement.
When Montero comes off the DL it seems that the DBacks will be in a platoon situation. In a tough NL west its very possible that the DBacks will be out of the running by the All Star Break, and possibly interested in trading one of these two guys. Especially Snyder who is owed 5.75 mil next season. I'm not very familiar with the defensive capabilities of Montero and Snyder, but to me it seems that one of these guys would be a viable pickup by the Sox.
What do you guys think?
