Just got back up from the press availability where Terry Francona announced that Tim Wakefield will not be on the World Series roster. Francona brought Wakefield up to the podium, and the pair explained the reasoning behind the decision.
Wakefield would have started Games 2 and 6 of the World Series, had problems with recovery time not concerned doctors. He said that, likely, he could have started Game 2, but after that things became far more uncertain.
The roster for the World Series was not yet announced. But the team will have one open spot for Wakefield that will have to be filled by 10 a.m. tomorrow morning.
