If you are anything like me, you wonder what catchers have to go through in the offseason to prepare for a season of 162 games. Well here’s a video showing us a typical day in Red Sox captain and part time catcher (I am having problems calling him a back up after all of these years, but it had to happen sooner or later) Jason Varitek. The video shows Tek in his natural habitat, his home down in Georgia.

So without further ado, from Boston’s own cable channel NESN (New England Sports Network), here’s the video…

For those of you who complain about Tek’s arm and his inability to throw base stealers out at a consistently enough, did you pick up on the fact that he now needs to start throwing more since he broke his elbow. Yup, that’s right, remember that one year when he was on the DL for most of the second half of the season after making that diving catch by the on deck circle? It’s all coming back to me now, that’s right, that awesome catch broke his elbow (and he still hung onto the ball if I remember correctly)!

OK, be honest with me now, how many of you had t go back to the video to hear him say that again?

As always, we’d love to hear your comments about what you think of this video.

Stay tuned, because next week we’ll have a video on another Red Sox player during his offseason workout!
