Boras Discusses Varitek

Adam Kilgore of the Boston Globe talked to Scott Boras recently about free agent catcher Jason Varitek.  As you'd expect, Boras' spin is heavy on leadership and inherent value, so as to draw attention away from the .313 OBP and .359 SLG.  Boras hinted that a multiyear deal would be appropriate.

Calls a great game, can't hit...that sounds like the mass of freely available backup catchers floating around.  To pay Varitek like a starter is to assign a multimillion dollar value to his intangibles.  That doesn't sound like a Theo Epstein approach, especially with his recent quotes about striving for at least league average at every position.
