Life After Tek

Jason Varitek is expected to announce his retirement soon and the Red Sox will move ahead without the likes of the longtime hero as they embark on their 2012 campaign. Jarrod Saltalamacchia and Kelly Shoppach will fulfill the catching duties – forcing Veterans like Josh Beckett, Jon Lester and Clay Buchholtz to adapt to life without the Red Sox rock behind the plate. Varitek will likely remain with the club as some kind of coach or consultant so hopefulyl his insight into hitters’ habits will still be present but his stepping down signals the end of an era for Red Sox Nation.
