Will Varitek be platooning all year?

Tek is missing alot of game this season. When he does play he's good but not great. Should I try to unload the big-name player for some better value. Will Tek continue to platoon?

Well, he'll never catch Wake. Bard is having a hard enough time as it is catching a ball that no one knows where its going. Varitek will be playing 1B/DH in a few years I think.

He doesnt platoon, he sits off every 5th day when Wakefield starts

Exactly. Every regular catcher gets days off, its just that Varitek's days off are predictable. This is nice if you have a backup C.

He's playing exactly the same rate as last season. Sits when Wakefield starts. Only difference this year is that they had a guy who could actually catch Wake (Mirabelli) and now they don't.
