07:35 AM ET 10.31 | While he contributed so often throughout the season and playoffs, Red Sox catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia watched Game 6. [Saltalamacchia] has come to the realization that he might have already played his last game in a Red Sox uniform. He will become a free agent after the season and he's already thinking he could be elsewhere in 2014. ... Prior to Wednesday's Game 6, Saltalamacchia sat in the Red Sox dugout enjoying the atmosphere. "As we're getting closer, obviously, you think about how this could be the last time I wear this uniform, and last time I play here as a home player," Saltalamacchia said. "It hits you a little bit. You don't want to leave but at the same time it's one of those things where it's baseball. If it goes in that direction you can't control it."

Salty is a useful player and his stock might be down after he looked bad in the WS. I'd like to see the Bosox sign him for cheap and just plan to give him more bench time in the postseason.

Come back to Texas Bro.

I don't think he'll be back. He was replaced in the WS by a 36 yr old career backup.

Thanks Slink, quite the unexpected result after last season.

Hopefully Tito can get one for Cleveland soon as well.

I read that the 2013 Red Sox are only the second team in major league history to win the World Series after finishing last place in their division the year before.That's a really incredible feat.

Have to thank GM Ben Cherrington for the makeover.

QUOTE(#13):

Particularly at this time last season, before all the off-season moves.Going into spring training, I felt they would compete for a playoff spot, but anyone that says they thought they'd have the best record in baseball, or win the World Series is full of **** -- especially Atro.

I agree, I thought before the season they could possibly win 86-87 games, and that should put them in the mix. But 97 and World Series champs.......no way.
