From Buster Olney’s blog today:
Scouts and officials with other teams say the Red Sox have been actively making inquiries about catchers.
Kevin Cash is Tim Wakefield’s personal catcher, for now. Not sure on their knuckleball-handling skills, but here are some other backstops who may be available: Gerald Laird, Michael Barrett, Ramon Hernandez, Bengie Molina, Humberto Quintero, Brayan Pena, and Jeff Mathis. However, Laird may be off limits and Barrett isn’t known for his defense. Molina and Hernandez are signed through ’09.
