I hope Scott Boras isn't hanging around pushing too hard for a Jason Varitek contract extension right now.
Yeah, the guy's great at handling the staff. But his steady decline at the plate in recent years has been troubling. He's down to .216 right now and he'll be 37 in September. His career average is only .265 and his last two years were well below that.
Great player. One of the All Time most valualbe Sox. But the clock is winding down, I'm afraid. I'd be leery about any talk of extensions beyond maybe a year at a time.
