Varitek Perfect For New Age Player/Coach

In this age of huge contracts and even bigger ego's can anyone tell me there is no place for the old fashion player/coach? Jason Varitek has been the epitomy of the old time player since he entered the league. His passion and leadership is uncomparable, and his love for the game far exceeds most players. Even with diminished playing time you can still see the confidence he instills in pitchers and teamates. In older times it was very common to have a player/coach who was usually a top 5 player on the team, and if history teaches us anything you will see that most of these teams were winners.

As a huge Red Sox Fan, I may be bias, but I would personnally welcome back a player/coach scenerio and I think most other fans would too. Jason Varitek was destined to coach or manage in the future so why not get the best of both worlds from him now and keep him where he belongs. Just a thought.....
