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.
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!
