Help Me Tim Wakefield, You're My Only Hope

Tim Wakefield.

In twenty-three career games at Tropicana Field, he's put up such sterling numbers as a .750 winning percentage, an ERA of 2.86, a WHIP of 1.16, a K/9 of 6.6...and on and on. You can read all about it here if you'd like, but combined with his average 2.44 ERA and 7 and 2/3rds over his three last starts, the Sox have no better hope than Tim Wakefield when they take the field tonight. Down they may be, but not out, and just like two years ago, Wakefield is the only stopper we need.

Go Wakefield. Go Sox.
