    Re: Thank you Tim Wakefield!!

    I always admired Tim Wakefield.  I was very happy to see him finally win a ring in 2004 especially with the way it ended the year before.

    Wakefield will always be remembered for that goofball gopherball. He was like a fat mascot, but not much of a MLB player.

    Yes, because most guys who are "not much of a MLB player" have a 19 year career...way to go Capt. Drivel

            I've never been a fan of Wakefield.

           What really turned me off was with a documented history of a bad back this slob year after year reported to Spring Training looking like Beckett.

           As for 2004 and his sacrifice one cannot forget he coughed up a very large lead in game one against the Cards only to be rescued by Bellhorn.

    Only 111 pitchers in history have won 200 or more games. Wake is one of them!

    Trotter's hatred for Wakefield speaks volumes to his character.

                  Wakefield was your average 500 pitcher with an era around 4.50

                  His rookie baseball card is worth 10 cents.

    I never could figure out why all this genuflecting at Wakefield's spikes.  The guy was an average pitcher who was always a advertisement for a track meet whenever a runner got on base on him.  I know in 1995 he had a banner first year for the Red Sox but over the years the league caught up to him and by his last three or four he was a human pinata with only occasionally givng the team a solid performance.  He was always susceptible to the "nuclear inning" when major damage was done.  Never a run or two but five or six when he had them, and he had them far too many times his last few with the Red Sox.  In the 2004 WS he was a total washout in game one and on the sidelines in 2007---and we never missed him a twit.  He was a poster child for staying around too long

               I can't for the life of me figure out why anyone would have a different view than what you posted.

               Wakefield should be remembered not as a baseball player but someone who helped out in the community.

    You guys are clueless. Let's compare him to a HOF pitcher;

                 Wins  Losses  WPCT  ERA    WHIP  H/9  K/9

    Wake     200    180     .526   4.41   1.35    8.8   6.00

    HOFer    197    171     .535   3.50   1.16    8.4   6.60 

    Also the difference between runs and earned runs for Wake was 209, compared to 104 for the HOF guy. And that was in 50 IPs less for Wake. I submit that Wake would have had many more wins had it not been for poor defense and PBs.

    Not a whole lot of difference between the two pitchers.

    Wakefield was no Phil Neikro that is for sure. He had 1995 and that was about it.  2007 was really Wake's last useful season with Boston.

    Dont let the facts, which you call lies, get in the way of your useless hatred for one man you never knew personally, but coninue to act as if he killed your puppy. But again, thats your schtick now isnt it softrott...

    I dont think he was HOF pitcher, but certainly not the horrible guy you describe...Not even close. His charitable work alone makes him a very respectable guy...

             Lets talk about clueless. For starters the nearly 1 run difference in era is hugh.

             Since when does any pitcher with a 500 record belong in the HOF?

             Don't ever remember any other team looking to sign him which allowed the Sox to retain his services year in and year out for pocket change.

             Lets blame the defense behind Tim for all those balls that weren't caught and totally ignore the fact that he was pitching for one of the most talented run producing teams in all of baseball.

             It's clear your knowledge of baseball is "pink hat" variety.
