Re: [All] Red Sox 2009
Jason Varitek to Exercise Player Option, Will Stay With Red Sox
The Red Sox declined to exercise their $5 million team option on catcher Jason Varitek on Monday, but that doesnt mean the longtime captain will be leaving Boston.
NESN learned on Monday night that the 37-year-old Varitek will exercise his $3 million player option for 2010 that includes up to another $2 million in incentives. The move is expected to be formalized on Tuesday and will keep Varitek with the Red Sox through at least the end of 2010.
Keep Tek to train Martinez. Best back-up catcher in baseball, his knowledge is probably the best in MLB.
Keeping Wake for 2 more years? Not so sure...
