The most lopsided MLB trade deadline deals  -  July 12, 2017:     MARINERS TRADE DEREK LOWE AND JASON VARITEK TO RED SOX FOR HEATHCLIFF SLOCUMB (1997)  -   Slocumb wasn't having a good year in 1997, but that didn't stop the Mariners from trading two very good prospects for the closer. He had 10 saves for the M's in 1997 and a 5.32 ERA for Seattle the following year. Lowe spent eight seasons with Boston, going 70-55 with a 3.72 ERA. Varitek was even better...   MORE...

TomCaron: 10 yrs ago today, Jason Varitek shoved a mitt in A-Rod’s face & helped turn a season around.

This was Jason Varitek unmasked, having come to a decision that every fiber of a body battered and bruised from 15 big league seasons of playing baseball's most demanding position had resisted until it could resist no more. Varitek conceded he would no longer be putting on the Red Sox jersey, No. 33 on the back, the "C" over the heart, that he had worn as captain of the Red Sox.

Edes: Varitek unmasked and unforgettable
