[Note by Randy Booth, 11/10/09 2:02 PM EST ] According to the NESN report, Varitek reported that he will pick up his option, not necessarily that he had picked up his player option. We could see Varitek officially pick up his option today.
OK, so maybe Jason Varitek isn't back in Boston yet:
Contrary to a report, Theo Epstein just said that Jason Varitek has not yet picked up his option . That could come tomorrow, however.
