2009 Offseason: Sox closing in on Varitek?

Well, it seems that all the posturing is over. Agent Scott Boras hasn’t been able to produce another bidder, so Jason Varitek can either come back to Boston or enjoy the MLB Network this year. The Sox extended an official offer to the Captain recently, and may have added a second year as an option or a guarantee. Like I said, he will end up back here. That means no trade for Jarrod Saltalamacchia until Jon Daniels backs down off of Clay Buchholz.
