    Why the delay?

    The RS knew they were going to lose Dice-K, and now that he's on the shelf, why haven't the Sox pursued another starter. I'm all for Wake being inserted into the rotation as a regular but I have reservations with Aceves. I know that Lackey is due back, but both he and Beckett are injury prone. Only Lester and Buchholz are consistently healthy.
    Time to give Pedro a Call!

    You mean they should let all of the other teams in the league know they are desperate for a 5th starter? That sounds like a good tactic for negotiating a trade.

    Do you think that the other teams haven't realized this already?

    Re: Why the delay?

    There's not much to choose from on the FA list except for maybe Bonderman who is just 28. Looking at his stats though, he is at best a .500 pitcher.
    He had a couple of good years with Detroit and earned 12.5M in 2010 which is hard to believe. If we could be picked up for say 2M, would it be worth it?
    Don't know his health situation.

    i think Wake will be the 5th starter with Doubront in waiting and possibly Miller later on..Im sure they dont want to let more good prospects go unless its a significant upgrade.

    anticipating SLACKEY'S return is like looking forward to another bout with an STD.

    Pretty clear you are completely disregarding the ERA's of Wastefield and Aceves, as starters. We both know why you like Wastefield, over Aceves, and has nothing to do with baseball performance.

    SoxSoldRed,

    I'ts obvious you don't like Tim Wakefield, but show some respect fot him as professional and print his name out correctly instead of insulting him by calling him Wastefield. Granted, last year wasn't his best, and I was in favor of letting him go a few years ago, but he's given the Sox some good outings this year when needed. I don't think you'd enjoy someone insulting your name like you do Tim Wakefields.

    It's just Softlaw being Softlaw. Wakefield is the new Jake and Jed. It's an attention-grabbing act.

    Re: Why the delay?

    I would guess some (some) posters give Wake some silly names because the way some other posters treat him as if it were 1995.

    For me I thought in 2010 Tim deserved the 5 spot... in 2011 I thought he should have been released..... he simply is NO reliever.

    Unfortunately our FO has treated the SP as poor as they have the SS position. 

    I think we all respect Tim but if the FO wants to be idiotic then it makes it easy for some to take it out on Tim.  No offense Tim... but its over.

    Re: Why the delay?

    A professional would have retired by now. A 5 plus ERA and nearlty 2 months of squatting for another starter to hit the DL is a waste of a roster spot. Can't wait to see Wastefield start against the Yankees. Why on earth would they try and hide him in the first place.

    I supported Wakefield until 2010. He needs to go, and this record thing is a complete bugaboo. If fans treated him like DiceK or Oki or Pedro, et al, management would have dumped him by now. The fans are the enablers.
