At 12:01 AM Friday morning, the free agency game officially began. And for the Red Sox, I think that Varitek is at the top of everyone’s list. I’m sure Theo has talked to Mr. Boras about it, but Theo is very secretive. It’s kind of unnerving. You’ve got to give Tek a second chance though, he’s a great player and he’s contributed so much to our team. I mean, remember how much everyone disliked JD Drew because of his lack of offensive in 2007. And remember thanking the lord for his existence? Well, who’s to say that Varitek can’t turn it around? If anything, it’ll be like a two year deal, but we all know that Varitek is going to retire with the Red Sox, one way or another. And has anyone else noticed that Scott Boras is like, a power agent? I mean, isn’t he Mark Teixiera’s agent, and Derek Lowe, and Jason Varitek? He must be pretty cool. The Sox might even be going after Teixiera. I don’t know who we’d give up for him though… actually, I don’t even know if we have to give anyone up for free agency.
So, yesterday, my friend’s mom went to this event, the opening of this hotel on Miami Beach… and A-Rod was there. He used to be married to my friend’s cousin, and my friend knew him o_O.
I’m staying on my toes for trade rumors, checking redsox.com every twenty minutes.. and counting down the days ’til spring training comes back. Can’t wait to make that 2.5 hours drive to Fort Meyers. I’ll almost have my license by then 🙂
