In the least surprising news of the offseason, Boston claimed Max Ramirez off waivers. Having traded for him last winter, sending Mike Lowell to Texas in return, a deal that was later rescinded based on Lowell's hip, I am not shocked at all that he was claimed when Texas put him on waivers earlier this week. Last year, the Rangers had three catching prospects: Taylor Teagarden, Jarrod Saltalamacchia, and Max Ramirez. Boston coveted all three of them, and now have two of them. We will have to wait and see whether Saltalamacchia and Ramirez can reach their potential.
