V-Tek is a staple of the red sox and is a great guy to have in the club house. However, we have Bard to put behind the plate and some good looking catchers from Pawtucket. Its hard to imagine we wouldnt get Varitek though...what were his numbers last year? (.220, 13 homers, 43 RBIs), I dont know if anyone else would be willing to take the risk. I say sign the guy, let him be a leader, and keep him on a low profile duty and not wear him out!
