See you later, Mike Lowell. It was fun for a while there. By now you know that Lowell is retiring at the end of 2010 following a 12-year career in which he collected three World Series rings (New York ’98, Florida ’03, Boston ’07), a World Series MVP and a legacy that may lead him […]
Tampa Bay Rays (84-54) @ Boston Red Sox (77-62) Matt Garza (14-7, 3.46) @ Tim Wakefield (3-10, 5.19) 7:10 PM EDT | Fenway Park (Boston, Mass) TV: NESN RADIO: WEEI 850, SBN 1150 GAME NOTES: After a flat out embarrassing display last night, the Boston Red Sox will turn to veteran Tim Wakefield […]
Welcome back boys and girls. Hope you all enjoyed your nice, relaxing All-Star break (we all know David Ortiz did). The Boston Red Sox’s are one of the few teams back in action tonight, as veteran Tim Wakefield looks to improve on his ugly record against youngster Tommy Hunter and the revamped Texas Rangers.
As if they didn’t get enough of the beating’s before, the Baltimore Orioles are back for more from the Boston Red Sox who will once again truck Tim Wakefield out to the mound.
After narrowly avoiding the sweep at the hands of the Rockies, the Boston Red Sox will head further west to try their luck against the Giants.
Not that Vincente Padilla strikes fear into the hearts of Bay Staters, but the Los Angeles Dodgers will be playing with a chip on their shoulder after their loss last night to the Boston Red Sox who will send Tim Wakefield to the mound.
The Boston Red Sox look to continue their interleague success against the floundering Phillies, who continued to serve up easy runs to the Boston yesterday. Sunday’s contest, which will send Cole Hamels out to face Tim Wakefield, may not be as easy.
On the heels of eight shut out innings by Dice-K, Tim Wakefield will lead the Boston Red Sox in another contest against the Cleveland Indians and David Huff, who was recently humbled by a monster line drive to the head off the bat of Alex Rodriguez just two weeks ago.
Terry Francona give the ball to the knuckler Tim Wakefield once again, as Josh Beckett still rides the pine with a prolonged back injury, as the Boston Red Sox’s stare down a series sweep of the Oakland Athletics.
Temporary — and Permanent — Rotation Fixes
Night after night, hit after hit, the Sox rotation is looking more like a punch-drunk boxer than a viable contender.
Though Lester has reaffirmed his ace status and Buchholz has put together a nice season on the surface, there just isn’t much to lean on after those two.
Lackey at least keeping the team in games with a 4.84 ERA/5.26 xFIP, Daisuke (5.77 ERA/5.48 xFIP) and Tim Wakefield (5.68 ERA/5.54 xFIP) can’t find their groove.
Though we knew what we were getting into trotting Daisuke to the mound – with his salary making him that much more cumbersome and immobile – the focus shifts to Tim Wakefield.
In baffling fashion, the Boston Red Sox top some of the league’s best on the road, and then proceed to drop a home game against the Kansas City Royals. Tim Wakefield will have to use his experience to get this new look Red Sox to take it one game at a time, as they take on Kyle Davies tonight at Fenway.
ust a few hours after Dice-K dialed in for a brilliant performance, veteran Tim Wakefield, starting in place of the DL bound Josh Beckett, will try to lead the Boston Red Sox past one of the game’s best pitchers on one of the league’s best teams, as they try to close an away stint with a victory in Philadelphia against Roy Halladay.
In a surprise and somewhat troubling scratch, Josh Beckett will not start today’s early game for the Boston Red Sox, as Boston tries to complete a sweep of the Toronto Blue Jays. Instead, veteran workhorse Tim Wakefield, fresh from a recent bullpen stint, will get the nod in Beckett’s place.
What Needs to Happen: JD Drew
The bad starts just keep piling up… and keep continuing, causing some real problems in the lineup and some real frustration for the millions of Fenway Faithful.
J.D. Drew’s poor April just keeps on coming, which has only added to the ineptitude and futility of the 2010 Boston lineup.
Still, while fans may have already begun clamoring for an overhaul, Drew’s April has all the earmarkings of a really bad, persistent slump – one that can ridden out with a patient couple weeks.
When players go through stretches like Drew has, at his age no less, the primary questions that tend to be asked are 1) is the player hurt? 2) is he seeing the ball well enough or just putting poor swings on the ball? and 3) is he getting old?
The Boston Red Sox bats were out last night in rare form. Today, the run support will have to be there in order to back up Tim Wakefield in his last start before heading out to the bullpen.
