Is This Why The Captain's Hitting .215?

My friend Dan sent me this tidbit this morning, from the Boston Globe:

Red Sox catcher Jason Varitek is splitting with his wife, Karen. The team captain filed for divorce July 28 in Gwinnett County, Ga., where the couple live in the offseason. They were married in 1997 and have three daughters, ages 8, 6, and 3. Varitek is in the final year of a four-year, $40-million contract he signed after the BoSox won the World Series in 2004. He'll be a free agent at the end of this season, though he turns 37 in April and is hitting just .216. Neither Varitek's attorney, Pamela Tremayne, nor his wife's attorney, Jonathan Levine, returned our phone calls yesterday.

There have been rumors that Tek has been infatuated with a certain sideline reporter (no names mentioned here but you can certainly guess who). I guess he joins his buddy Derek Lowe in the "Team Reporters Who've Ruined Our Marriages" club...
