Cue the Music: Welcome Back.

Looks like the Captain is gonna be around for at least one more year. 1 year, $2 million base salary with another $300,000 possible with incentives are the figures that keep Jason Varitek in Boston, at least for next season.

I gotta admit; my stomach was in knots at the prospect of seeing him in a Dodger, Blue Jay, or Oriole uniform. The fact that he probably won't hit his body weight at the plate next year doesn't bother me.

There are still 3 certainties left in my life.

1. Trot is more than likely going to do SOMETHING tomorrow that would result in imprisonment in a foreign country.

2. Rakes will work the word "nuts" into a conversation at some point in the next 24 hours.

And 3? Jason Varitek will be wearing a Red Sox uniform with the letter "C" on his chest next year.

One out of Three ain't bad.

nuts ain't so bad.
history lesson -

", Brigadier General McAuliffe. When confronted with a written request from German General Luttwitz for surrender of Bastogne, he replied “NUTS!”"

Tek coming back is the best news I've had all day. :)

Ted D said...

I wasn't exactly upset either, sis. ;)

:looks around: I'm afraid to admit that I was more excited to hear Adrian WANTS to remain in Boston
:sits on pins and needles:

I think it gets done, Tex. He hasn't signed that offer with Oakland yet for a reason.
