Just to elaborate a bit on that --- once Curt Schilling made the statement that he really had balls on the mound - nuts as big as Saturn.
He does. Nothing phases the kid. Hopefully his past relationship with LaRue will help as some of the comfortableness with Varitek (other than the fact he's the best damn catcher in the leagues!) was that they were always on the same page. Jason 'knew' what he was painting and what he wanted to throw.
