'Tek just made my night!

Brent called me at work this afternoon to tell me the good news that Varitek exercised his option to play for the Red Sox again next year. **happy dance**

I have finally had time to sit down and read the article on the website.

I kind of thought and hoped he would go this route knowing the kind of leader and player he is, but I have to admit I was still a bit worried. I know and like Victor Martinez (admit he's a great addition) and Red Sox Nation all knew it was coming, but it's still hard. I still believe had 'Tek been out there catching for some of our pitchers towards the end we may have done better. While his bat may not be as hot, his skill as a catcher is still there. I really hope we'll get to see him play a decent bit next year, even if it is second string.

The fact that he has taken this step just makes me love him all the more - and let's face it, $3 million isn't so bad....

On a side note - I really must investigate the time stamp for my posts...it's WAY off. While I worked late on the paint last night it certainly wasn't until 4AM..must be my home computer.
