Red Sox Catching Unit Among League Leaders in Offense, Far Cry From Slow Start to Season

Way back in April when the Red Sox were stumbling out of the gates, there were plenty of fans and media personalities who were taking to the message boards and airwaves to criticize the Sox — especially their catchers.

Since then, though, Jason Varitek and Jarrod Saltalamacchia have bounced back incredibly. They've rebounded so much, in fact, that their combined offensive statistics rank among the best in baseball for catching combinations.

Tom Caron and Peter Gammons discussed the improvements on Red Sox First Pitch. See what they had to say in the video above.
