The Boston Globe is reporting the deadline the Sox have given Varitek is set for this Friday, not Saturday. There appeared to be a communication mix up.
Jason Varitek has until this Saturday, January 31, to make up his mind whether or not he wants to go back to Boston.
The Red Sox gave him the deadline when they gave him their offer this past weekend.
He should just sign. Nobody else is going to go after him. Plus, he is not going to make the money he wants.
