Varitek Meeting With Henry Tonight

Tony Massarotti reports that Jason Varitek is meeting with John Henry tonight
in the Atlanta area, where Varitek makes his offseason home. Varitek would not specify a location of the meeting other than to say it would not be at his home. Varitek's agent, Scott Boras, will not be at the one-on-one meeting.

According to a baseball source, it was Varitek who requested the meeting.
Seems like a resolution of some kind is not far off.

Also: the Globe has a transcript and video from Kevin Youkilis's press conference this afternoon:
I never pictured myself on another team. ... I've always seen putting on that Red Sox uniform everyday, putting on that B on the hat. This is home to me. I don't know any other place other than Boston to come to the field everyday and to live. For me, it's a great feeling just to know that I can be here and stay here for a long time. I was very happy from day one talking multi-year deals to stay here.

Jason had a long time with the B on his cap. What, it's forever or nothing?

The Boston Red Sox have introduced a new logo for an alternate uniform hat for the 2009 season.
