Looks like the Captain is gonna be around for at least one more year. 1 year, $2 million base salary with another $300,000 possible with incentives are the figures that keep Jason Varitek in Boston, at least for next season.
I gotta admit; my stomach was in knots at the prospect of seeing him in a Dodger, Blue Jay, or Oriole uniform. The fact that he probably won't hit his body weight at the plate next year doesn't bother me.
There are still 3 certainties left in my life.
1. Trot is more than likely going to do SOMETHING tomorrow that would result in imprisonment in a foreign country.
2. Rakes will work the word "nuts" into a conversation at some point in the next 24 hours.
And 3? Jason Varitek will be wearing a Red Sox uniform with the letter "C" on his chest next year.
One out of Three ain't bad.
