signed Jason Varitek -- who turns 39 in April -- to a one-year deal worth approximately $2 million; andmet with Carl Crawford yesterday.
Jeemer: thank you and goodbye!Varitek: why can't we thank you and goodbye? For crissakes, enough already. More than enough already.
I'm going to miss Okajima. I know, because I've already had practice missing him for a year now.
Peter Gammons tweeted Cp L yesterday. What does that mean?
I don't know how many people realize that Oki pitched for 12 seasons in Japan before coming to the US. He'll turn 35 this month. I don't think it's a stretch to say that his best years are behind him. Of course, if the MFY sign him and he comes back to haunt us, I'll be pissed! ;-)One more year with Tek? I think I can handle that so long as he is not the everyday starter. Heck, he has to be better than Kevin NoCash.
Is Jason Varitek Worth Having?
I won't miss Okajima much. He was not terribly effective the last two seasons.And as far as Tek, my heart may be bigger than my brain on this subject, but I would like to see him end his career in a Red Sox uniform...at the end of next season. Those numbers from Allan's link are probably better than most people assume, at least from the defense side. And Saltamacchia may benefit from having a veteran around to help.
