Terry Francona answered some questions from fans today on NESN.com and addressed the issue of Jacon Varitek catching Tim Wakefield next season.
I don’t think that probably makes a whole lot of sense. We have always used the other catcher to catch Wake, and Victor [Martinez] did a very good job with him. We will probably use more of a conventional rotation with our catchers in 2010. And when Victor is not catching, we’ll try to strike a balance with keeping his bat in the lineup and getting him his rest.
Sounds like Tek is not going to get a whole lot of time behind the dish next season.
