[QUOTE]In Response to RINGLEADER: VARITEK : Sofia, I hope you are telling the truth because I have believed for the past three years that Varitek should not have been on the team. If we hadn't resigned him twice he would have been out of baseball because he got exactly ZERO offers from other teams. He has long outlived his usefulness. He can no longer hit, can't throw, can't lead, and if he still wants to play let him do it elsewhere. That goes double for the other relic, Tim Wakefield. When I heard him say he wanted to return in '12 and knew the fans wanted to see him break the record I nearly went catatonic. I was never a fan of Francona but it is interesting to now hear that we wanted Varitek gone. Next season both he and Wakefield must be gone, along with the medical staff that has proven its incompetence the past two seasons. We need a manager with spine and a Lucchino who will back him and also demand competence, responsibility and a full commitment to winning and not trying to be everyone's pal.

Look, I never post anything on Patriots board unless I KNOW it to be fact. Check out my HISTORY there. I reported Moss separating his shoulder 6 weeks before it was in newspaper.
2007, I stated Moss' 40 times in MARCH @ 4.21 in his workouts..for those who were saying he was washed up....and you saw him run.
So, Right Now...am telling you this about Varitek & Wakefield, his devoted follower. It WILL come out in news. Sadly, the 1 guy that shocked me on this one...was Lester, who has never been lumped into a badass category before. Bucholtz, for certain, a punk off the field...but never Lester.
I have family...coaching in MLB, yet, am lifelong Red Sox fan...But will tell you, this rumbling DID NOT start in Sept...was more like May-June,,,and snowballed.
Sad part about Varitek, is had he just retired, he could have owned this city...He now, once this comes out...will yes, be recognized for his role in 2 Championships...but HAS burned some big bridges.
