Jarrod Saltalamacchia – The Red Sox catcher is having himself an All-Star campaign this season. Imagine a grassroots campaign to try and get Salty to Kansas City in which the mayor is called upon to endorse the Boston backstop? Yikes. Here’s the big question, though. Would Mr. Mayor have a tougher time pronouncing Saltalamacchia or spelling it?
Likely Menino pronunciation: Salt-shaker-la-mucky-er
