Red Sox Chick/Toeing the Rubber

Because you always need a backup plan

And we would all go down together

Tough to post daily right now with all the little things going on but that doesn’t mean I’m not paying attention.  Thrilled that the Sox picked up VMart’s option, happy that Wake will be returning albeit with a new contract and not surprised at all that the Sox didn’t pick up Tek’s option.  So far no huge surprises in the early days of the Hot Stove.  Right now folks are hanging on to whether Tek will exercise his option or let Scott Boras talk him into doing something seemingly stupid – but he only has until today (Wednesday) to decide.  I don’t know that I’m ready for the Jason Varitek era to end (although, in a sense, it already has given that if he comes back he’ll be the backup catcher) but I’m eager for moves to be made.

More important than Tek’s deadline, Wednesday is Veterans Day.  So I’m going to make this entry short and with purpose.  Be thankful for the men and women of the military, folks.  Regardless of your views on the war, there is no denying that these folks put their lives on the line so chickens like me don’t have to.  They don’t get as much appreciation as they genuinely deserve, so, thank you, people of the military.  Thank you for your sacrifices.
