  • Varitek hits Grand Slam #2 of his Career!

    As a big Tek fan, I just had to put this out there. He gets a lot of knocks for his ABs with the bases loaded. I'm just sorry I'm too bogged down with other work to watch it.

    hahaha and in the fifth they intentionally walked Tek to load the bases so they could pitch to Lowell. lol. Another double, that scored 2. Sox up 8-2 with men on second and third.

      Man, I can't believe I'm missing this.

        Don't worry it's gotten pretty ugly quickly. 9-2 after 5.

          Excellent for Tek. I loved the way he circled the bases at his usual near-sprint, exchanged perfunctory high-fives and then zipped into the dugout to put on his gear. He is all business duting the game, but I bet he's all smiles right now.

          Wicked cool.

            A grand slam in the first inning- that's nice, but nothing big.

            A grand slam in the 9th inning or later- now that's something to celebrate.

            He's still hitting .247 for the year, a down year for him.

                LOL!

                I agree. It's nice to see Varitek showing some power again. He is prone to cold spells, but when he heats up he's a solid #5 or #6 hitter. Heck, even hitting lower in the order he helps to shore up an offense that is among the best.

                  Going 1 for 4 is hardly shoring up the offense.

                  Loretta did more for the team today than Varitek.

                  Sorry but a grand slam doesn't compensate for his offensive dropoff this season, he's still batting .247. Frankly the only thing keeping him in the #6 slot is his tenure with the team. Throw Loretta in that spot and he would have been dropped down in the order a few weeks ago. Lowell deserves Varitek's spot at #6 in the batting order.

                    Not negative, just grounded in reality.

                    I'll celebrate a grand slam when it actually is a huge deal. Hitting one in the 1st inning in a blowout game is hadly a huge deal. Hitting one like he did last year to turn the tide of the game and or win the game is a huge deal.

                      I'll celebrate a grand slam by ANY BoSoxer at ANY time. First inning is fine with me.

                      This game didn't even start to become a 'blowout' until well after Varitek's slam. Another former BoSox catcher who had a career BA of .269 is now in the HOF. At this point in his career, Varitek's BA is .272. He's off to a bit of a slow start at the plate this year. So are some of the other Sox' bats. Let's hope those bats are now starting to come alive.

                          That's what I like about the Tek and Red Sox in general--no curtain calls. Makes me like the Yankees even less when they come out like that.

                            It wasn't a blowout game WHEN he hit it, it was a blowout game BECAUSE he hit it.

                              heck, even after he hit it, it was still only 4-1, hardly a blow out. Espically with DiNardo on the hill.
