    All we ever hear about is the number of no hitters Varitek has caught.

    Well today he tied the record for allowing Crawford to steal 6 bases.

    Great job captain..

    Please name me one catcher who could have thrown out Crawford when the pitcher is throwing breaking balls.

    what the hell is your beef with Varitek anyway? Even if he's as bad as you claim he was an absolutely integral part of 2 WS championships in a city that hadn't seen any in 86 years. He deserves a lifetime of support from Boston not a swarm of annoying, spoiled little pink hats such as yourself.

    When people say that Boston sports has the worst and most fickle fans in professional sports, this is what they're talking about.

    Crawford was stealing mostly with 2 outs, tek choose to ignore risking the error and let the pitcher get the out. Not Tek's fault bud.

    :D:D:D cupofbullsh!t. i like it. they did a comparison last week on nesn between tek and three of the catching prospects the sox might have been interested in last off season. tek had better numbers than all three of them. saltalamacchia teagarden and some guy from the diamond backs. his name escapes me.

    I gotta say I am delighted to see Tek hitting so well this year. I didn't think he had it in him, but what the hell do I know? Now if we can just get Papi on track...

    I always thought Tek should just hit for power ... too bad it took him this long to figure it out.

    2 homers in the same game before getting ejected today, I think Tek has improved!

    He wasn't ignoring the risk, he had no chance of getting crawford.

    That being said, it was mostly penny being slow to the plate. Tek's arm looks awful though.

    Varitek last year:

    220/313/359

    This year:
    248/320/541



    A year ago today, tek was hitting:

    272/353/470


    Before Yesterdays game, Tek was hitting 238/313/492. Significantly worse than last year at the same time.

    I hope his newfound power is real, but I have a feeling its not,and his final line is going to end up at 220/300/400.

    Stupid.... I don't think so... Captain Insane

    The problem with Tek is the summer months when his bat goes south. It is not uncommon for him to put up mediocre stats in April & May.

    As of today he has a 239 average which is not too good.
    He had a better average this time last year.
    In 2008 he batted 273 avg April & 299 avg in May
    before slumping to 122 avg in June & 197 avg in July.

    He is hitting for far better power this year.
    Hopefully his power will continue for awhile or
    until he is reaquired to pee in a cup.

    Hahaha. This pretty much describe a lot of fans of any New England sports teams, but especially the Pats and Sox. I don't wonder whenever I hear other people from different parts of the country say "oh man, Red Sox fans are so annoying."
