Other than the time Tek broke his elbow diving for a baseball, and landing on a rubber batting circle mat, he's never had any other serious injuries in his career. He takes excellent care of himself, he is GREAT at working with pitchers (ask anyone who he's ever caught), and is a more than decent switch-hitting bat in the middle of the Boston lineup.
He's also the leader (captain, if you will) of this team. I'm very pleased he'll be a Red Sox for at least four more years... it's certainly a lot of money, I agree. But I'm still really happy he's staying.

jonny bench had never playede less than 114 games in a season when he was 32. after the age of 32 he missed a season injuried and played catcher only 13 more times before retiring at the age of 35. nothing agianst tek, i'm a big fan of the guy, but catchers don't age well.
