    Complete drivel. Jason Varitek will be joining Wastefield on an as of yet unnamed potato salad venture, soon after both are DFA later in the year.

    What is the point of this thread?  The Salty Tek combo has been more than satisfactory.  We have a couple of days off.  Why the need to bring this up?

    When you have a creative thread idea, then you can create a thread and wait for people to walk in and call it useless.

    Your post hints that this thread is creative.  You pat yourself on the back yet you you just spout the same stuff day after day.  You post this like someone asked you about Tek.  Meanwhile, no one did.  You are a bore.

    I'd like to disagree with the the tread bearer. Absolutely no other team will submit an bid whatsoever for Tek's services.

    Which has absolutely no bearing on whether he is helping the Sox this season. I still fail to grasp the point of Tek bashing today.  he is the backup catcher and has performed well in that role.

    I am just positioning myself for the off-season when certain posters will insist we bring him back again.

    I think Lavarnway MIGHT get a shot..I wouldnt be upset if tek was back though..hes done a fine job in the BU and mentoring role.

    I don't know man. I can tell you this that every year you bring Wake and Tek back it increases the likelihood you will have to DFA one or both of them in the middle of a season. Then the bad feelings will occur and histories tarnished.

    A lot of players retire who could still go out one more year and hit 15 homers or win 10 games. 

    At some point (and both have performed well enough this season) and as early as 2012 one or both will be out of ball. Let us hope its because they retired and not because they had to be kicked out.

    Ah here is a good question, if the Mets offered Beltran for Drew and Tek (insisting on the pair) would you take it?

    That is a good question...I think a fair trade would be drew/beltran straight up, so I wouldnt do it anyway just for that no matter if it was Tek or not..Also right now to trade your captain at the deadline is probably a locker room and pr nightmare..Which ultimately would be a bad thing for the team..

    A big part of that record (at least for 2011) is that when he plays we have another bat in the lineup with an OPS over .900 since May 1st.

    April: .339 (41 PA's)
    May: .933 (50 PA's)
    June: .937 (43 PA's)
    July:  .946 (16 PA's)
