07:27 AM ET 11.06 | Jarrod Saltalamacchia may just come up against a familiar friendly foe this offseason. After being drafted in the first round in 2003, [Saltalamacchia's] path to the majors with the Atlanta Braves was obstructed by fellow blue-chip catcher Brian McCann. Now, in the ultimate irony, McCann could replace Saltalamacchia with the Red Sox. If the Sox elect to move on from Saltalamacchia behind the plate -- and it sure seems like the World Series champions are leaning in that direction -- they likely will make a push for McCann, who also became a free agent last weekend. Although McCann figures to draw interest from several teams, including the New York Yankees and Texas Rangers, his agent told the Herald that the 29-year-old is "fascinated" by the possibility of playing for the Sox.
