Top Sox Moments of 2009 - Number 4 - Varitek Gives up 20 Stolen Bases

In one game. Actually it was 6, but that was back in May and it could have been a good reason why the Sox went out and woo-ed Victor over to Boston. That and whatever near .200 average he was hitting at that point. This isn't really as much of a "Top Moment"as one would think, but if it did push Theo and Co. closer to realizing they needed a new backstop, well then I guess it worked.

I know we rip on Tek a lot here, but it's purely statistical. Hell, he's supposedly having some adult relations with Heidi which while making me insanely jealous, also gives credit to what kind of awesomeness he has displayed here over the last 10 years. It will be sad to see Jason go (and he can't take Heidi with him) but in a way an abbreviated year of him this year may be the best way to go out.

Hey, I guess when a pro ballplayer gets older, that's what happens! When a player gets closer to the end of his career, he doesn't all of a sudden break out hitting grand slams, making fantastic triple plays, etc. They start to break down. Jason has been easing his way out. God bless you Jason Varitek....and the Heidi you rode in on...

It's always hard to watch the downfall of someone who was such a part of the franchise.

It is!! It's sad, but inevitable. And do you think they'll retire the big "C"?
