Saltalamacchia Back In 'The Show' With Snakes

After being cut by the Miami Marlins, former Red Sox catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia is back in the major leagues with the Arizona Diamondbacks. Salty had been languishing at AAA Reno (where he batted a dismal .188) before today's call-up. Even more oddly-spelled Arizona catcher Tuffy Gosewisch went on the DL—opening up a spot for Salty. This, after The Fish decided that their oddly...

A Fun Fact Illustrative of the Marlins’ Plight

On Sunday, the Miami Marlins fired their manager, Mike Redmond, barely half a year after he received votes for the 2014 NL Manager of the Year.

Blake Swihart – Another New Face

The Red Sox would have preferred to leave Blake Swihart at Triple-A for one more year, but here he is-the third Sox catcher the Sox have used in this young season. The Sox catching situation has been in flux since Jason Varitek retired in 2011. Jarrod Saltalamacchia was up and down, though showing some power. AJ Pierzynski didn’t hit and had clubhouse issues. David Ross was...

Miami Marlins: Michael Morse the lineup’s missing ingredient

When the Miami Marlins signed Michael Morse, it was reminiscent of a move they made last offseason in the signing of Jarrod Saltalamacchia; filling a positional void in the offseason by a veteran with a record of above-average production and championship experience.

Marlins position analysis: Catcher

After a 100-loss campaign in 2013, the Miami Marlins sought to address their areas of need, catcher being one of them.
