Hate to be another one of those Red Sox and Beards people but found this poster funny and with Game 5 tonight of the World Series I figured it was somewhat appropriate. My personal favorite is “The Tease” (David Ortiz) in real life and “The Buck” (Clay Buchholz) in terms of beard style, what about you?
Personally, I have always been a fan of Jason Varitek since I found out that he had moved in down the street from my childhood home not to mention the full size candy bars and autographs on Halloween and/or Him, Johnny Damon, Mike Timlin and others Trick or Treating in my neighborhood during the peak of Red Sox madness (September 2004 – The Start of the 2005 Season).
Reading the accomplishments and stats above it is hard to deny the greatness of Varitek but what is often overlooked was his ability to call/catch a great game. Many of the Boston Red Sox pitchers praised Varitek and his ability to call the right pitches and talk to them in key high-stress situations. This is displayed by him catching 4 no hitters, this is by far the most by any catcher in the history of major league baseball.
Apparently success has followed Varitek wherever he has gone, winning championships at every major baseball level growing up:
- Little League World Series (LLWS)
- College World Series (NCAA)
- Major League Baseball World Series (MLB)
- World Baseball Classic (WBC)

ESPN just released updated fantasy baseball rankings for May 2013 and is very high on Paul Goldschmidt and very low on R.A. Dickey. Dickey has dropped 56 spots and is now ranked #123 overall, this is quite a drop for someone that is coming off a CY Young type year. Personally I feel that part of… Continue reading How A Knuckleball works, Fantasy Baseball Re-Rankings May 2013 & Tughts
