Red Sox To Pass On Varitek?
According to the Boston Herald, Jason Varitek's agent Scott Boras told the Red Sox that they will look to Jorge Posada's 52.4 million dollar contract as a "benchmark" for contract negotiations involving Jason Varitek. This is an absolutely ridiculous claim, but we know that Boras will eventually come back down to Earth. It wasn't that long ago that Scott Boras was looking for 200 million dollars for Carlos Beltran, and then had to settle for 119 million dollars over seven years.

The Tigers and Nationals are believed to have some interest in Varitek, but only if his price comes way to down to a one or two year deal with a modest base salary.
