Rod Barajas The Next Red Sox Catcher?

The Red Sox have shown a slight interest in journeyman catcher, Rod Barajas, as Victor Martinez's replacement. In 2010, in a season split between the Mets and Dodgers, Barajas hit .240/17/47 in 99 games. Rod Barajas may actually be just the answer that we are looking for as he is not a bad hitter, as he's got a little pop in his bat. However, the main thing is his catching, because Victor Martinez was a pretty bad all around and Jason Varitek couldn't throw well, Barajas could give Red Sox fans a deep breath behind the plate. Although Rod Barajas only threw out 15% of baserunners this season, in his career he has thrown out 32%. The Sox were close to inking Barajas in July, but then he got injured so the trade was annulled. All in all, I think this is a great decision and I hope that they will make it happen.
