It's no secret that the Red Sox have no catching options for the present. They have already used Jarrod Saltalamacchia and Jason Varitek. Both of which with mixed results. Varitek catches the pitchers well, and can occasionally have a moment with the bat. Salty... well he's sometimes good for a needed hit. Sometimes.
Now I'm not saying Geovanny Soto wouldn't be a better option (nice to dream), but realistically, Pudge is PROBABLY more available, and wouldn't cost as much. Even though he's aging, he can still throw runners out, and he works well with most pitchers, the learning curve for him not being that long.
So if we can get him for a minimal price, would you take him?
