08:13 AM ET 04.04 | As the team's catcher, Jarrod Saltalamacchia may find himself at the center of many discussions about what ails the pitching staff -- and his numbers at the dish aren't going to help. The Sox hitched their wagon to Saltalamacchia, and his strong spring reinforced their evaluation. Three poor games haven't changed that, but fans are wondering about the team's faith in him, and that will be an ongoing situation. This was, after all, Jason Varitek's team for more than a decade, and now Saltalamacchia needs to prove he's a worthy successor. Tough to do when you've started the season 0 for 10 and when the staff you're handling has allowed 26 runs, 34 hits, and 11 homers in a three-game sweep at the hands of the Rangers, capped off by Sunday's 5-1 loss.
