WEEI is reporting that a Red Sox source indicated today that there was no 8:30am deadline today for Jason Varitek to make up his mind. In addition, Tony Massarotti said 8:30am here is 5:30am for Scott Boras on the Left Coast and that perhaps the Red Sox were willing to take that into account.
But if WEEI did indeed speak to a Red Sox source, then that is as close as you can get (unless you are assuming the Red Sox are trying to trick Varitek by floating misleading rumors). And, if so, we are possibly in for a longer wait than expected. This really is getting old…
Is Carlton Fisk in game shape?
