    Joe, you are blind. Moonslow shows that Wakefield should be on the playoff roster. Just watching that goofball go to the backstop should be enough to bring anyone to their senses. Of course, some are senseless.

    I thought all that matters to softy is ERA since 2010.

    12 pitchers per team x 30 teams is 360.
    Out of all MLB pitchers since 2010...

    Miller is at # 359 out of 360 with a 6.75 ERA.
    Wake is at #325 out of 360 with a 5.15 ERA. 

    (Lackey is at #310 at 5.00)

    How about WHIP from 2010-2011?

      #360 out of 360. Yes, the very worst WHIP in MLB since 2010 is...

    ...the guy softy wants on the playoff roster over Wake is the worst pitcher in MLB since 2010.

    His name is....

    Andrew Miller with a 2.11 WHIP

    Even more amazing is the fact that the 2nd worst (Doug Davis) is way ahead at 1.92. The next group of pitchers at #358 out of 360 are at 1.69 to 1.71!

    Wake's WHIP since 2010 is 1.32 (#176 out of 360), but much better among starters.

    Aviles role on the team is that of the "super sub" and pinch runner, with Lowrie back his playing time will diminish and if Lowrie stays healthy and hits along with Scutaro able to also play mulitple positions. Aviles may not even be on the post season roster. End of the day Avilies was aquired as insurance in case Lowrie didn't return from his shoulder woes.

    Is he the longterm (as in the rest of season) answer to our need to have a RH bat off the bench, who can play RF in Fenway? I'd say that Aviles has to outperform MacDonald from here on to earn a spot in October with the glove and the stick. In his favor is becasue of his athletisism and ability to play multiple positions his overall value might be higher to the team than Dmac's...also working against Dmac is Reddicks ability to play all three OF positions...

    Aviles is a better fielding SS than Jed and Scutaro, so he could also be a late inning defensive replcaement.

    Aviles is terrible in field and PA. Dumpster dive.

    Wakefield on playoff roster in pen? Get ready for Aaroon Boone Part 10.

    Aviles is a better SS fielder than Lowrie and Scutaro, which isn't saying much.
    He has shown decent range in the bigs, but is not viewed as a great fielder. He has a career UZR/150 of 10.8 at SS.

    I'm not happy having to count on Wake in the playoffs, but I'd have more faith in him than your choice: Andrew Miller - the worst of 360 MLB pitchers (40+ IP) from 2010-2011 when combining ERA and WHIP.

    Miller would be in pen for one batter material. Nice to see your confidence in Wakefield. #3 over Lowe in 2004. A rock.
