'Tek Checks in on Manny's Plans

"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.

'He's scheduled to be here, what is it, March 1? We hear he's in great shape and ready to go. We'll see what happens [when] we get him here March 1.' " -- 2.23.07, Gordon Edes, Boston Globe
