This is a serious question. This could determine the fate of the Red Sox Nation. This could make grown men cry and women weep. What is the question you ask? Well it is……….
Where will Jason Varitek play in 2009?
Duh, Duh, Dun, Duhhhhhhhhh
The stage is set, the cameras are ready, and tonight we are interviewing Jason Varitek by special guest of honor Ryan Seacrest!!!
We’re on in 5……. 4……3…….2………1………. and it’s showtime!!!
Ryan: Hello everyone, I’m Ryan Seacrest and today I am being joined by Jason Varitek on the Manoman Morning Show! Today I am going to ask Jason about his offseason, what he’s doing to train and what his plans are for this upcoming season.
Jason: Hey Ryan, so how are you doing today.
Ryan: Great, you?
Jason: I’m doing awesome.
Ryan: So what are you doing this offseason?
Jason: Well, I’m playing golf, training, and hanging out with my kids.
Ryan: How are you training for the upcoming season?
Jason: I lift weights, go running, and go training with my teamates.
Ryan: You been speaking to Manny lately?
Jason: Yeah, we keep in touch. I don’t think what he did at the Trade Deadline was right though.
Ryan: What do you think about Manny’s free agency?
Jason: He shouldn’t have demanded so much money at the beginning of the offseason but Manny is a great player and a good guy. I think he will be signed soon though.
Ryan: How about your own contract situation?
Jason: I was looking at my potential suitors and I am in contract discussions with the Red Sox. The fact that they have already offered me a contract and that I have played with them for so many years is definetly influencing my decision.
Ryan: Is Curt Schilling influencing your decision at all?
Jason: Yes, but to a minor degree. It’s good to get input from the players I’ve played with.
Ryan: So Jason, this is my final question. Who do you want to sign with this offseason.
Jason: You know what Ryan, I want to sign with my Red Sox.

The weather is chilly
The Hot Stove’s cooling down
Some General Managers were so silly
Letting their players leave town
Footballs are flying
Baseballs are being cooled
Yankee fans are dying
To see the Red Sox get schooled
The stars are training
Getting ready for the season
While others are demanding huge contracts
Practically for no reason
Some teams are getting bargains
Some players are getting deals
And the Hall of Fame just inducted someone
Who’s got some pair of wheels
A candle is alone flickering
Waiting for its time
To go join a team
With its own fantasy rhyme
Boras is speechless
As quiet as can be
Still demanding huge contracts
For some players worth a penny
So that’s the story of this offseason
From Dunn, to Abreu, to Manny
How many are left without contracts
And those people are a plenty
Embrace who you have and desire who you need
Go tell your General Manager and be sure to plead!
Congratulations Boston you just signed your first baseman to a 4 year $41.25 million contract. Four more years of Youkillis to come. Here’s how us Yankee fans feel about that.
We also don’t appreciate you locking up Dustin Pedroia to a 6 year 50 million dollar deal the other day.
You know who you are, don’t look away.
Our players also have very strong feelings towards Kevin.
Sorry, Wrong Photo…
OK, That’s more like it. This guy…
Threw this ball…
at Youkilis’ head! Talk about spreading the love!
Baseball is around the corner!
