Red Sox: Concerns about Varitek, rotation

As CBSSports.com colleague Scott Miller reported last night , the Red Sox have been able to rekindle talks with the Padres on first baseman Adrian Gonzalez.

The Sox have long coveted Gonzalez, so it's not surprising that they would talk about him, and it wouldn't be surprising if they acquired him.

Too bad he's not a catcher or a starting pitcher.

People familiar with the Red Sox say the team has increasing concerns about Jason Varitek's ability to stay healthy, and also about the depth of their starting rotation. Varitek, sources say, has already had more than one cortisone shot this season. Varitek is hitting just .207 in July, and after hitting 10 home runs in April and May, he has just three in 39 games since.

Rotation depth was supposed to be a Boston strength, but John Smoltz has a 7.04 ERA and just one win in his six starts, Brad Penny has been inconsistent, and Daisuke Matsuzaka has spent more time talking than pitching.

The Sox have talked to the Indians about Victor Martinez, who could fill in for Varitek behind the plate. They've also talked to the Blue Jays about Roy Halladay. who would give them an imposing front of the rotation, with Josh Beckett and Jon Lester.

Last I checked the Sox took the Yankees to the "woodshed" 8 straight times this year. You can be a hater, but at least keep it real. Every team has off nights like last night, the Yankees have had 8 this year when they needed to be up for it. The Yankees will continue to choke just they have since Game 4 of the 04 ALCS
