Boston Red Sox

The countdown is on for a decision from Jason Varitek on whether or not he will accept the offer from the Boston Red Sox. There’s no need to rehash everything. We know the details, we know the timeframe, so now we sit and wait and countdown the hours to 12 AM on Saturday morning.

Or as Howie Mandel would put it, Deal Or No Deal?

So while we sit here and wait on bated breath, let’s take a look at what else is making news for the Red Sox organization.
