Jarrod Saltalamacchia helps Marlins get heated in big win over Nationals

MIAMI -- Marlins catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia took offense when Nationals shortstop Ian Desmond began shouting at right-hander Tom Koehler during the fourth inning of Tuesday's 11-2 victory at Marlins Park.

Marlins' Saltalamacchia jokes he hopes Red Sox go 0-162

Ian Kinsler isn't too fond of his time with his former team. But what about Jarrod Saltalamacchia? Kinsler caused quite a stir last week when he told ESPN Magazine that he hopes the Texas Rangers "go 0-162" and that the club's general manager Jon Daniels is a "sleazeball."

Catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia getting to know his Marlins pitchers

JUPITER, Fla. -- If Miami Marlins catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia seems extra chatty this spring training, there's a reason for it. Saltalamacchia, who signed a three-year contract during the offseason, inherits a young pitching staff that posted the lowest ERA (3.71) in club history last season. "At this point, just trying to develop a relationship with them," Saltalamacchia...

Boston Red Sox: 3 Reasons to love the A.J. Pierzynski signing

This morning, the Boston Red Sox came to 1 year/8.25mil deal with former Texas Ranger, AJ Pierzynski. Big splash move? One that will cement the Red Sox as back-to-back champs? Not necessarily. No, he’s not Brian McCann. No, he’s not Carlos Ruiz. Yes, this means that Jarrod Saltalamacchia will be (most likely) taking his talents and beautiful, beautiful hair elsewhere (and all...

Switch-Hitting Jarrod Saltalamacchia Wears Wrong Helmet to Plate, Swaps It in Middle of At-Bat (Photo)

Jarrod Saltalamacchia is a switch-hitter, which can be problematic for opposing managers trying to match up against him with relief pitchers. It can also be problematic because he needs to keep track of which helmet to wear each time he steps up to the plate.
