It comes down to whether the Sox are looking for a long-term solution at the position, and whether they think Salty is that solution. If they believe so, then pay the money and get him in here. If not, then they need to pursue other avenues. I think catcher is a position that needs to be addressed this offseason.
Maybe if they sign a stopgap, they'll be tipping their hand that they are planning on drafting Alex Jackson.
