Theo doesn't hold onto fan/locker room favorites just for the heck of it.. see Nomar, Manny, Pedro, Damon, etc. This appears to play into the notion that Boston will need to acquire a young C this year. Even if Varitek accepts, they'll still need a young C to work in for 2010. Salty playing well in the AFL couldn't have come at a better time.
