Catching Market Continues to Shrink

The Red Sox do not have a catcher for the 2009 season and the available options are shrinking. Scott Boras may have been too busy trying to work out a deal for Teixeira while leaving his client Jason Varitek behind. The Rangers are no longer willing to deal a catcher, and the D-Backs just announced they do not want to trade Miguel Montero:

"We've spent a lot of the off-season assessing and nothing has motivated us (to make a trade) to this point. At some point, you have to say, 'OK, we kicked the tires and nothing in trade exceeds the value of keeping both, so we'll keep them both.'"...The Diamondbacks discussed a deal that would have sent Montero to Boston for pitching prospect Michael Bowden, but the Red Sox wouldn't bite. Detroit and Pittsburgh also are believed to have shown interest in Montero.

It is looking more and more likely that the Red Sox will find a way to re-sign Tek.
