Francona: Varitek 'ran that clubhouse'
February, 28, 2012
Current ESPN analyst and former Red Sox manager Terry Francona today reflected on the career of Jason Varitek. The 39-year-old catcher played under Francona from 2004-2011.
"When you look at the Red Sox, all the numbers (for catchers), he's always at the top of all the numbers," Francona said in the video above. "But he far outweighs those numbers with intangibles. He had the 'C' on his chest for seven years. He ran that clubhouse so many times, he kept it going so many times, he kept everybody going in one direction so many times. I just hope he's happy on the day he retires."
