But with Barajas signing with Arizona over the weekend, it looks like Matt Treanor is the only FA left out there.
What is Ramon Castro doing these days? With a year off, he should be well rested.
I am thinking its time for Sandy Alomar to return to the White Sox. Its been a few years since we relied on him, should be fresh. Also maybe Carlton Fisk will get some kind of community service for the cornfield incident, and be required to catch one game a week? Grasping at straws, but yeah, we need vet backup. Wasn't Hank Allen a BP catcher?
