    That is a dumb statement. You can have Wake on your team and I will take Beckett. Let us see who ends up winning.

    A great 5/6 starter who has pitches like your typical #3 in well over half his starts this year.

    A 'quality start' is 6 innings and 3 runs. 4.50 ERA. That is what you expect from your #3. You expect worse from your #4-5 and better from your #2.

    Wake has an ERA of just under 4.5 as a starter this year (4.9 overall b/cf time in pen).

    So technically we are very lucky to have a 5/6 starter pitching as a #3 this year.

    lol. I would just a soon he win and stay on the rotation for 2011... and retire with a 2011 WS ring on his finger... that is all.

    As for the postseason anyone who follows this team and the game knows a knuckleball does better in warm weather.

    Wake is a wonderful mid-May thru mid-Sept asset, but look at his ERA the first 6 weeks and the last 6 (into the playoffs) and you know he is nothing but a mop-up guy who (like in game 3 in '04) can save the pen in a loss to ultimately help win the series.

    but while he pitches like a 3 starter June-August, he can't be one on October, obviously.

    I think the concern is that there is no dominant #3. It does not matter how decent your #5 guy is if the other team (such as Philly) have better pitching 1-3. Also I see someone like Verlander in Detroit  pitching a CG in the play-offs while Beckett and Lester can barely go 6... if your Ace loses the opener that makes the #3 starters game all that more important.

    Numbering your starters one through five or six makes no sense. What is the point?

    Mo wants the Yankees to launch homers in BP. All Yankee players will say put Wakefield on the playoff roster and start him. Aaron Boone says Wakefield has earned it.

    Mo Vaughn said Wakefield should have won the 1995 Cy Young. He's been out of baseball long enough that there are deli sandwiches named in his honor and children out there whose only knowledge of Mo is that he is a slumlord...no, he's actually a pretty good guy, trying to help out by running several apartment buildings for the low income people...Mo is da man!!!

    The latest report that I heard is he may be back to help us out of the bullpen in the playoffs.  You really can't expect much more than that considering how long he has been out.  Even a few innings from Buchholz could help the Red Sox.

    Andrew Miller has shown he isn't a No. 5 starter.    Felix Doubront seems too brittle.
    Weiland lacks experience.    In the playoffs, Beckett and Lester and keep your fingers crossed.

     Mo Vaughan couldn't wait to escape Boston to cash a paycheck fatter than his prominent backside, and it was poetic justice when he got hurt on the first play he handled for the Angels, an injury that helped shorten his career. The "Hit Dog" has found success though, buying up dumpy apartments at an 80% haircut to Fannie Mae, read "THE TAXPAYER", that's you and me kid. Remember when he wanted to be paid what he was worth? Now that he's on the owner side he has no qualms about home town discounts. His ah, acquisition was helped by "friends" in the know. There is a movie in the works about the new king of NY real estate, it's called "Slum-Hit Dog Millionaire".

     If Wake is our #3 playoff starter then we're in deep trouble.

    The good thing is Wake can only lose 6 more games this year.

    Yes, if we are down 2-0 or tied 1-1. That's why I had wished we'd have done better than Bedard at the deadline.

    Wakefield will be the number 5 starter in the playoffs and likely won't start a game, but could come in with long relief. He will be on the playoff roster however so all the wacky overstatements on all sides of this are irrelevant.
