With Jason Varitek heading to the disabled list because he needs surgery, the Sox are probably looking for a catcher that would be more suitable than Ken Huckaby.
Maybe that could be a pissed off Oriole by the name of Javy Lopez.
Lopez has asked for his release and the odds are good they'll grant it:
Lopez is quite expensive (2006 salary: 9 million) but I think he'd be a good addition to the Red Sox. Lopez may not catch every day like he wishes, but I'm sure he'd agree to catch 50% of the time or whatever if he was able to land on a team in playoff contention.
Should the Sox pursue Lopez?
