We Got Options

Today the Red Sox picked up two no-brainer options, for Victor Martinez and Tim Wakefield. Tim Wakefield (top) went 11-5 with a 4.58 ERA this year in 21 starts and 129.1 innings pitched, he has been resigned for a two-year deal. Victor Martinez (bottom) split '09 between Cleveland and Boston, and hit a combined .303 average with 23 bombs and 108 RBIs, although he is not a top notch catcher, he is such a good hitter that he can make up for that fact easily as since he came to Boston he had a fantastic line of .336, 8, 41 in 56 games after the Trading Deadline. With Victor back for sure in 2010, the Sox can focus on resigning the man who wears a C on his chest, as they declined Varitek's $5 million option for 2010, I don't know whether there will be more negotiations or if they will let him slip by. All I'm gonna say is, "We got options."
