I actually wouldn’t mind if he’s behind the plate for Josh Beckett’s Game 2 start — Varitek’s presence is of apparent importance to the pitcher, and that’s worth something. I just don’t want to see him digging in to the batter’s box for a meaningful late-inning at-bat. Heck, I’d rather see the suddenly available Eric Wedge get a few swings.
