    Wakefield's been a playoff bust but this Yankees fan says thank you Tim

    Let's not revise history. Wakefield was for the most part a mediocre pitcher. Many fans complained that they did not know what to expect on a given day. When his knuckleball worked, it was very dominating. And when it didn't, it was homerun derby time. The rational every year was that he gave the Sox innings and saved the bullpen. But for the perceptive fan, he was no more than a run-of-the-mill fifth starter.
    Now to his postseason record. First a big thank you for Aaron Boone's homerun. I remember it like yesterday. In fact, his postseason resume is horrible.  In seven Octobers with Boston, Wakefield is 3-6 in 15 appearances (eight starts), with a 7.54 ERA and 31 walks in 51 1/3 innings.

    He gave up 12 runs over 11 innings in 2004, and lost to Chicago in 2005.
    Let's take a closer look at his postseason record:
    Year        W     L            ERA                INN
    1992         2     0            3.00             18.0-Pittsburgh
    1995         0     1            11.81            5.1
    1998         0     1            33.75            1.1
    1999         0     0            13.50            2.0
    2003         2     2            2.91              21.2
    2004         1     0            9.82              11.0
    2005         0     1            6.75               5.1
    2007         0     1            9.64               4.2
    2008         0     1            16.88             2.2
    Total         5     7            6.75               72.0

    Wakefield beat the Yankees twice in the 2003 ALCS, and his 3 scoreless innings in Game 5 of the 2004 ALCS were a big factor in the amazing comeback.

    [QUOTE]Wakefield should have been the only pitcher in playoff history to be the MVP of the LCS in each league.  1992 with Pitt and 2003 with Boston. Each series featured a complete meltdown.  Stan Belinda and Jose Lind contributed to it in 1992 and we all know Goober Grady's act in Game 7 of 2003's series. Not bad for a #4 starter who pitched in the steroid era in arguably the toughest park in baseball and in the AL East. "Run of the mill 5th starter"? Are you dumb? He's been the best "5th starter" in baseball for 15 years and a good 4th starter for the majority of that time. He's also been a total bargain for the organization. If this guy pitched in the NL West the last 15 years, he'd have 250 wins right now.

    Great call Jete.The description fits him perfectly.I like Hfxsox's suggestion but would also summit the nickname "Shooter" as an alternative.

    Good morning to my good friends on Red Sox:On the front burner.
    The 1918 World Series was fixed. The Red Sox haven’t won a World Series on the level since beating the Brooklyn Robins in five games in 1916. The Chicago History Museum released a portion of the 1920 court deposition of Black Sox hurler Eddie Cicotte and Cicotte said he and his White Sox teammates talked about one or more Cubs players who were offered $10,000 to throw the 1918 World Series, won by the Red Sox in six games.  That means your Sox haven’t won a legit World Series in 95 years. Sure, the Sox won in 2004 and 2007, but those teams were led by 3-4 hitters David Ortiz and Manny Ramirez, both of whom turned up on the list of players who were using performance enhancers in 2003. Manny went on to fail drug tests in 2009 and 2011. So it's 95 years and counting.

    Then who did win the 2004 & 2007 world series? other teams that didn't win? or the other teams that didn't win the the red sox beat and had players using PED's as well??? If we lose our championships b/c of PED's then shouldn't the Yankees lose their's because of (Pettitte/AROD/Clemens?Giambi...many others)???????????? 

    Personally I think everyone using PED's cancles eachother out.

    The best part of that year was Josh Beckett shutting the Yanks down on 3 days rest with a complete game gem to close them out in Yankee Stadium.  That man can take the ball for me anyday.

    Also, you trying to make anyone feel bad about 2003 doesn't really work because only one season later, we danced on your lawn.  Your tweaks fall on deaf ears, dude.  You are goint to have to bring more than this.
