"Red Sox captain Jason Varitek, however, was not as dismissive [of the Manny controversy].

'This is a huge one for us to wait out and see what actually happens,' Varitek said. 'We can only go off [whether] it happens, what to do. There's not a whole lot to do. If it's a 'post' thing and already occurred, it changes the dynamics quite a bit.
