Tek To The Tigers

Posted by Mike on October 30, 2008

Ken Rosenthal wrote in an article that a rival executive said that Boras is selling the idea of Varitek being the next catcher for the Detroit Tigers. Good save the Red Sox 8 million dollars and automatic out in the line up. Boras wants a deal similar to that of Jorge Posada, in terms of length for Varitek, instead of the 2 years the Red Sox are offering. Varitek hit a lowly .220 I am sure the Red Sox could do better and younger with someone else. The Red Sox will most likely address the catching this offseason going after one of the Rangers young catchers Teagarden or Saltalamacchia. Time for the Red Sox to reload and get more offense.
