REPORT: Varitek Interviewed For Seattle Skipper Job

According to Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com, former Red Sox captain Jason Varitek has interviewed for the open Seattle Mariners managing position. Ironically, the Mariners let Varitek go as a player—along with Derek Lowe—in a trade for the immortal Heathcliff Slocumb.
