VARITEK Passes Physical...He's Back!

This post was just released on the Boston Herald blog three hours ago...

"Jason Varitek passed his physical, and the team announced yesterday (Friday) that he had signed a one-year contract with an option for 2010. The deal was first agreed to last Friday.
Varitek, traded to the Red Sox from Seattle in 1997 and named captain in 2004 after his last fling with free agency, will earn $ 5 million this year."

That's good news indeed, but it doesn't mean that the Red Sox won't trade one of their young arms for a younger catcher with a better swing...in the future, not right now. The entire Red Sox pitching staff is overjoyed that the captain is back. He helps every one of them in SO many ways. I, for one, am very happy.

Five days, two hours to go until pitchers and catchers report to Fort Myers...how great is that! Have a great Saturday and a wonderful weekend. The Red Sox news will pick up when the Florida spring camp opens. It's eeriely quiet right now. You can click on this post's title for more articles concerning our Sox from SI dot com. As always, be well. Take care of yourselves.
