As a catcher starting to get up in years, Varitek has had an advantage over the past few seasons of getting every fifth day off when Doug Mirabelli gets behind the plate to catch Tim Wakefield’s knuckleball.
Still, a mild decline is probably a proper forecast, and I think the at-bat total is too high here.
Maybe even catching four days out of five is a bit much to ask of a catcher who will be 34 on April 11.
