Why would he? They have a top prospect in Swihart, and Sandy Leon hit .310/.369/.476. Why would Boston want him? LHH DH platoon?
Leon happens to be hitting like old Leon.  There's a real question of who gets what time there.  They probably are willing to go with 2 defense-first catchers and let Swihart get in a lot of work in AAA at the start of the year.  Neither Vazquez nor Leon have options, so they can't really add Norris without waiving one or the other.
