Varitek Filed for Divorce

Soon-to-be Free Agent Hits the Market Early

Boston.com reports:

Sox catcher Jason Varitek is splitting with his wife, Karen. The team captain filed for divorce July 28 in Gwinnett County, Ga., where the couple live in the offseason. They were married in 1997 and have three daughters, ages 8, 6, and 3. Varitek is in the final year of a four-year, $40-million contract he signed after the BoSox won the World Series in 2004. He’ll be a free agent at the end of this season, though he turns 37 in April and is hitting just .216. Neither Varitek’s attorney, Pamela Tremayne, nor his wife’s attorney, Jonathan Levine, returned our phone calls yesterday.

My take

Tek had the least attractive partner of all the Boston Red Sox wives/girlfriends. (Oh by the way, look for coverage of the hottest Boston Babes coming soon!) Looks like he finally came to his senses. I think it’s a good move all-around for him. Let’s hope this gets the average up!

  2. Jean,

    I’d like to say all you women are alike too! I think that a man AND woman should be attracted to their spouse. And let’s be honest, if you’re famous and want to get married, forget love, the reason you’re with that person is simply because you’re rich and famous and they want a piece of it. Maybe she was there before he was famous. But maybe it’s time Tek cashed in and moved up. He’s GOT to be jealous of his teammates. Honestly, you look at the other ladies of the Sox, she doesn’t compare. Sure, she could be a nice person and all that but anyone can be nice, it’s how good-looking you are that people judge first. Shallow and terrible as it may be, it’s just the society we’re born into.

    It’s the same reason you women read endless magazines filled with images and articles telling you what’s wrong with you and what mold to fit. I always do find it ironic that women go out of their way to doll themselves up, but if a guy pays “too much” attention to looks he’s an ass, it’s great logic. The new thing is saying a woman is supposed to make herself pretty “for herself”, when really that’s the media trying to make themselves look angelic. The truth is people want to look good because attention is what makes them feel good.

    If you’ve got a problem with my little blurb, you’ve got a bigger problem with society as a whole. If you don’t like it, stop wearing makeup and see where that gets you.

  3. Oh Dev, Dev, come on man…that is just so WRONG! They got married before he was famous, but now that he’s a big shot and can get any chick he wants, that makes it okay for him to dump his wife?!? Typical, but I have to say I was shocked by this. I thought Tek was one of the good guys, guess not! Maybe the personal life accounts for his slump. He’s always been my favorite player, so I hope he gets his sh#*t together!
