On Thursday afternoon, Varitek and the Red Sox agreedd on a one year contract that includs an option for the 2010 season. Varitek is expected to make $5 million in 2009. The option would also be for $5 million but if the team chooses not to pick it up then Varitek can choose to remain with the team for $3 million. In 2010, he can earn another $2MM in incentives based on playing time, beginning at 80 games started. The incentives apply to the player option only.
