On Tek, Jon Heyman wrote that…
Varitek is believed to be seeking a four-year contract, and there's been no evidence of progress on that front with Boston, which likes to limit the length of deals to its 30-something players, even its beloved 30-somethings.
Buster Olney…Heard this: At a time when Jason Varitek is moving toward his free agency, the Red Sox are scouting minor league organizations for catching.

Prediction: Tek gets $20 million over two years with a club option for a third.

Baseball Prospectus is reporting that…

Like the Phillies, the Red Sox may make a big off-season pitch for Holliday if they decide not to exercise the 2009 club option on Manny Ramirez.

Adam Dunn is a better option than Holliday to replace Manny for the simple reason that he would only cost the Sox their late first round pick. Holliday is a better player than both but not for the number of prospects it would take. Dunn is Manny with a poor average. And the Sox would be gambling if they offered Manny arbitration, so they could get compensated with additional draft picks, he might accept and be award $25 million. Unless NL clubs think he can play the field, the MFY are Manny’s only other option and that’s far from a lock.
