Even this Yankee fan is on the edge of her seat. Will Varitek sign with the Red Sox by the time I wake up in the morning here on the West Coast? Will Josh Beckett, Jon Lester and Dice K have their trusty catcher to catch to? Will Red Sox fans like Julia and Elizabeth get their guy back?
According to MLB.com, there’s a chance Varitek would actually sit out the season rather than take less than he feels he’s worth. I can’t picture it, but stranger things have happened in baseball….and on soap operas.
Here, then, are some scenes that provide a glimpse of how a Red Sox-Varitek love affair might conclude.
Take 1: The Worst Case Scenario.
Take 2: Scott Boras The Devil Intervenes.
Take 3: Together Forever…Again.
How’s this for trivia. Before becoming an actor, Drake Hogestyn (above) played minor league baseball for the Yankees. He turned to soaps when he couldn’t make it to the bigs. Our loss? Their loss? Toss-up.
