I'd like to see Botts get the seaon-long uninterrupted chance. On a side note, I can't stand that Salty has all this support for being a future great catcher. Most catchers with a good arm and no technique seemed to be a lot better at throwing out guys than this one. What did he throw out last year...15%. Laird is getting a raw deal and it drives me nuts! Sorry for the soap box.

I'm also a huge Botts fan. With his history of slow starts at each level, the club needs to give him this full season at the Major League level to prove himself.This is a rebuilding year, he needs to be able to have the full year to produce.

I know that Vazquez is versitile but he can't hit his way out of a paper bag, Why is he on this roster? I know that we need someone who can relieve blalock but can't we do better than vazquez?

in stead of dropping someone from the 40 man roster why not do a two for one trade. If saltalamacchia is going to be the primary catcher, then trade Laird and cruz and maybe a pitcher( say loe or tejeda) in a 3 for 1 trade or 3 for 2 trade?
