POLL: Swihart Has Slight Edge In Catcher Preference
Further voting in our latest FenwayNation Poll indicates that Blake Swihart has a slight edge over Christian Vazquez in reader preferences—although it's still close. As the chart shows, 45% now choose Swihart as the catcher the Sox should hang on to, while 41% take that view for Vazquez—essentially a flip from our last reading. About the same number as last time (14%) opt for keeping Sandy Leon over the other two catchers. Interestingly, a poll on MLBTradeRumors.com (with a much bigger sample size) shows somewhat similar results: Swihart 49.9%, Vazquez 34.5%, Leon 15.6%. You can still vote in the poll HERE.
