REPORT: Varitek Interviewed For Seattle Skipper Job

According to Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com, former Red Sox captain Jason Varitek has interviewed for the open Seattle Mariners managing position. Ironically, the Mariners let Varitek go as a player—along with Derek Lowe—in a trade for the immortal Heathcliff Slocumb. Of course, we did have to give up Lee Tinsley to get Slocumb in the first place (insert heavy sarcasm here). ESPN named the transaction as the 7th worst deal in baseball history. Anyway, it's still not clear whether Varitek would move his family out of the Boston area to take any managerial position—but this one might be too good to pass up. Stay tuned.
