    Bullpen coach Gary Tuck resigns from Sox....

    Red Sox bullpen coach and catching instructor Gary Tuck resigned from his position Tuesday for personal reasons. Tuck had been working with Ryan Lavarnway in Fort Myers, Fla., the past week, but informed general manager Ben Cherington he would not be returning.

    Cherington said the team is exploring internal options to fill the position.

    Tuck, who was the lone holdover from fired manager Bobby Valentine’s staff, took a leave of absence last season because of personal matters. He was replaced then by minor league instructor Chad Epperson.

    Tuck has a good reputation for his catching knowledge and instruction. He helped in the development of former Yankees star Jorge Posada and was instrumental in the improvements made by Jarrod Saltalamacchia and Lavarnway.

    Former catcher Jason Varitek, who is a special assistant to Cherington, could be a candidate to replace Tuck.

    Tuck has a reputation for being one of the best catcher/bullpen coaches in baseball.

    The sox should wait for the first home game to replace Tuck....They could have Mirabelli arrive in a cab.....

    Tuck also missed significant time last year. I would welcome Tek in a position to tutor Salty and Lavarnway, as well as sit in with the pitcher/catcher meetings. He has to know more about Lester, Buch, Bard, Aceves, LAckey than anyone else on the team. He could only be a plus I would assume.

    Same here.

    But, I think it's too much to ask, to offer Tek the bullpen coach.

    Coaches put in an unbelievable amout of time in. I doubt he'd be interested, at this point.

    Varitek would seem the logical replacement, and would probably do a better job than Tuck.

    A better job how, exactly?

    You know something that Tuck didn't do well, specifically?

    Or, are you just filling your weekly 'I've got say something negative"quota?

    Boy.

    You sure have no idea on Sox stuff.




    It's been reported that Tuck has personal issues, and actually had to take time off for them. His head can't be in the game 100% with that going on. Plus there is not a generational gap with Tek and as the former captain of the team, would likely have a positive influence with the players.

    Tuck is the one who worked with and corrected Salty's faults, worked with all the kids...not inlcuding his work with the same job as the Yanks...

     

    and as for Tek....yeah that postive influence really worked well during the chicken and beer fiasco...

     

    seriously.....think before you type.



    So, you would rather have a guy who has personal issues than the former Sox catcher for 15 years, working with the pitchers?

    You are the one who needs to think before typing.

    I think Varitek wants to get a spot in the front office. Bullpen coach seems like a demotion.

    This is a tough blow.  Tuck had the best BPCERA in the majors over his tenure.

    its step 1 of a number of jobs he most likely will have along the way. in his postion, along with Pedro, step 1 means helping the team any way the team needs them.

    I would have to imagine having Tek in pitcher/catcher meetings would be a big help to the veteren pitchers that he knows well. has to help Salty and Lava as well with their game plan.

    Tek wouldnt have to be "bull pen" coach per se...or he could be co bull pen coach and work home games....simply helping the team in any way he can

    " Special Assistant" sounds much more impressive than " Bullpen coach."
