This is shaping up to be one of those "It's not you, it's me situations."
The Red Sox have three catchers right now -- Jarrod Saltalamacchia, Ryan Lavarnway and David Ross -- and they'll have to get rid of one, it appears. And it appears as though Saltalamacchia will be the one to go.
It's not that the Red Sox hate him on their roster. It's that their pitching stinks, and to help it improve they need a receiver who is good at managing games and handling arms.
Not necessarily Salty's strong suit.
"I don't think it's about catching so much as it is about pitching," Steve Buckley said on Uno Sports Tonight. "They have to do everything they can to help the pitching staff."
Watch the video above to see what Buckley thinks the Red Sox might receive in return if they decide to deal Saltalamacchia. (SPOILER ALERT: It ain't much.)
As GMs will tell you, the process for figuring out the draft order is a fluid work in progress. Take a look at the latest installment on A. Sherrod Blakely's mock draft

HARRISON, N.J. - Daniel Royer finished a nice sequence in the 74th minute, Luis Robles made a diving save in the closing minutes and the New York Red Bulls rallied to beat the New England Revolution 2-1 on Saturday night.
Felipe sent the ball left to Kemar Lawrence alongside the box and he put a cross to Royer on the back post for an easy finish on his fourth goal.
Robles, who only allowed Lee Nguyen's penalty kick in the ninth minute, preserved the win with his fourth save, diving to his left to block Diego Fagundez's shot from outside the box.
Bradley Wright-Phillips tied it for New York (6-6-2), which was winless in its last four matches, when he pounced on a loose ball and backheeled it into the net. New England goalkeeper Cody Cropper had pounced on a cross by Kemar Lawance, but Cropper could hold on and Wright-Phillips was there to clean up for his sixth goal.
Damien Perrinelle fouled Fagundez in the penalty area after a great pass from Kei Kamara, allowing Nguyen to step up for his sixth goal. New England (4-5-4) had won two straight and lost just one of its previous six. It is 0-5-2 on the road.
