Jason Varitek to the Detroit Tigers?

Eli GreenspanSenior Analyst INovember 2, 2008

According to the Detroit Free Press, agent Scott Boras is pitching free agent catcher Jason Varitek to the Tigers. Varitek would be a great pick up by the Tigers, especially because he is in no position to command a long term, lucrative deal.

Although his offense has been declining, Varitek would help their young pitching staff as well as be a leader in the clubhouse.  The Red Sox are reportedly interested in bringing him back, but they are pursuing Jarrod Saltalamachhia and Gerald Laird, and will probably just settle for one instead of giving money to Varitek.
