Varitek Negotiations Dragging

According to Tony Massarotti of the Boston Globe, the Red Sox have a proposal on the table for Jason Varitek.  However, the two sides have not made recent progress on a deal.  Varitek "has not given up hope of securing a two-year deal," according to Massarotti’s source.

More realistically, I am guessing Tek can accept around $4MM on a one-year deal.  If he’s really stubborn he can wait until after the June draft, but it’d take a desperate team to give him more than a few million for a half-season.
