    I love Wake.  I'm thrilled he is on the team.  That's right...I said it!

    The way our starters are going now, let's hope we never have to use Wake as a starter all year.

    If we do need a starter. I'm glad he is one option available.

    (Cue basher softy....I mean GM)

    Put Yaz back on the roster, and pay him millions to sit on the bench.

    Wakefield had no signature post season moments other than the homer ball in 2004, and is a disaster when the slowest baserunner gets on base. He's a fan favorite, and highly overrated for his MLB pitching career. No one, and I mean no one, had a lower level of confidence than Wakefield pitching a tipping point game. 

    When Wakefield is forced out of MLB, I'll reserve my final comments for what I think of his career.

  7. Boston's front office has not seriously considered cutting Tim Wakefield. -- mlbtraderumors

  8. Well, they need to seriously consider doing it, if he refuses an assignment to AAA.

    Hey, I LIKE that ...

      ....oh, you meant the real Yaz ... nuts
      Thought my ship had come in for a second...

       And yes, I CAN think for a second.

      I can eat thirds.  Fourths, if it's a good dessert!

      ...I don't, but I can ....


        Back to the OP - sir, I thank you for a most appropriate line of thought!  I am a nobody but I appreciate it when someone takes the time to share some good vibes about any Red Sox ... and Wake has been remarkable by style and performance.

       Tip o' the hat!

    Right on cue, I see.

    (Look at the 2003 & 1992 playoffs.)
