As Salty and Laird being the only two guys who we have been linked to, it seems one or the other, at the right price, is priority #1 for Walt before the deadline. So my question to you is who would you rather obtain? Salty is younger a switch hitter but is seen as more of an offensive catcher lack much defensive skills. Laird is having a career year hitting around .310 and is much better defensively, but offensively over his career he doesn't project has anything more than a younger David Ross.
My vote is for Salty as he is the offensive catcher we have lacked for a number of years. Tough he is only hitting .232 this year in part time play, his OBP is .100 points higher at .332. We can keep Ross as the defensive minded catcher and let him and Hanigan battle it out for that spot in ST.
What say you?
