Perrotto on BoSox and Rangers

John Perrotto has this note in his BP column today:

The Indians would consider trading catcher Kelly Shoppach for a young pitcher who is capable of closing, which makes the Red Sox a logical trade partner; they would likely part with Masterson, who could also be dealt to the Rangers for catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia.

Saltalamacchia for Masterson was something there was some talk off last summer, although this item isn't clear on whether Perrotto is suggesting that those discussions have occurred between the teams, if he's talking about players that each team has an interest in, or is just speculating.

However, it is worth thinking about and talking about, I guess...would you be on board with a straight-up Salty for Masterson deal?
