Could Jason Varitek be the Next Red Sox Manager? One Person Close to Varitek Would Love to See it




David Ross is the latest former player without managing experience to get a manager's job. When Jason Varitek was playing he was viewed as a guy who would be a great manager one day. Varitek retired in 2011 though and has not been mentioned as candidate for any of the managerial openings the last seven years.

Speculation was that Varitek didn't want to manage. That would make sense to a certain degree. He doesn't need the money, Varitek made over $67 million in his career. Managing also isn't for everyone. Many former players miss the game but not the everyday grind. Could that describe Varitek? Maybe but there is one person who wants Jason to manage one day and that is his wife Catherine. She tweeted this out earlier today.



 As speculation continues about Alex Cora and his role in the Astros cheating scandal, the Red Sox appearing to change course with their spending and their new hire of Chaim Bloom, could Varitek be a candidate for the Red Sox manager's job the next time there is an opening? We know Mrs. Varitek would love to see it.

Tweet at me @thepeskypole and let me know if you would love to see Jason Varitek as the Red Sox manager one day.

  2. Jason Varitek, probably the most well known "Captain" of the Boston Red Sox during his playing time. A natural leader who is very comfortable in that role. A man of integrity, honor & humility... who REALLY knows the game of baseball, is LOVED by fans & former players; AND, is a well tenured part of the Boston Red Sox family & legacy. I, who've followed the Red Sox every year since 1967, say & nominate THE MAN who has been part of the Rex Sox family for years, and is still part of this family: Jason Varitek, 2020 Manager, Boston Red Sox. ps. look no farther.
