4 MONTHS LATE:

Gonzalez heads to Reds as Sox angle for catcher (Nick Cafardo, November 19, 2006, Boston Globe)

While the Red Sox were losing shortstop Alex Gonzalez, who agreed to a three-year deal worth $14 million-$15 million with the Cincinnati Reds, they were close to signing 35-year-old veteran catcher Alberto Castillo to a minor league deal with the probability that he will compete for a major league backup job in spring training.

If they'd acquired him instead of Javy they'd have remained a playoff team last year.
