Yanks Face Catching Woes

Buster Olney wonders whether Jorge Posada will have to spend most of the season DHing, and at the same time his backup Jose Molina may be DL-bound.  Sure, the Yankees could just make do with internal options until Molina returns in a few weeks.  But it's also possible that Brian Cashman will look for outside help.

Trade possibilities include Bengie Molina, Ramon Hernandez, Humberto Quintero, Brayan Pena, and Gerald Laird.  Laird may be off the table, as the Rangers wait to see if his offensive resurgence lasts and give Jarrod Saltalamacchia more time.  Molina and Hernandez carry commitments through '09, while Pena and Quintero are backups and could be easily acquired.

The Reds may be considering a similar list of available catchers, though they are looking for more than a short-term fix.
