Twinkies, Rockies, And Jays On Salty Watch

Previously, we reported on Minnesota's interest in free-agent Red Sox catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia. Prior to the signing of Brian McCann, there had also been rumblings that The Evil Ones were keen on Salty. Now—according to's Jon Heyman—Colorado and Toronto are in the mix as well. With the pool of available backstops dwindling (Boston had designs on both McCann and Carlos Ruiz) the Red Sox might have to revisit a deal with Salty. The problem is he's looking for a three-year pact, and Boston is still risk-aversive enough to shy away from anything beyond two years. If that's the case, there may be a Dioner Navarro or an A.J. Pierzynski in your Christmas stocking this year.
