What a shock. Jason Varitek took the one-year, $5 million deal for 2009 with the Red Sox today. It also includes the club option for 2010 for $5 million. It also has a player option for $3 million should the Sox decline the second year, and that also includes incentives up to another $2 million. But the Boston Globe also says that the Red Sox aren't finished looking for another catcher just yet.
So I guess Tek isn't crazy after all.
