    All you Wake supporters...

    Just look at it this way, this year he needs his team to give him 7 or 8 runs per game. The guy was done 7 years ago, who cares about  200 wins. He is costing the team wins.

    Yeah because Andrew Miller, Kyle Weiland, Felix Doubrant and John Lackey have been so much better. I mean, look at it. Wakefield is keeping potential Cy Young Award winners on the bench.

    Wastefield. I am in full agreement with you.

    It's shameful the way Francona intentionally injured Matsuzaka, Buchholz, Bedard and then Beckett just to make sure Wakefield could get a shot in the rotation long enough to get #200...

    Wakefield (11IP, 10ER) in his last 2 appearances is still not nearly as much of a problem as Lackey (8IP, 11ER) and Miller (6.1IP, 11ER).

    If he was done "7 years ago" then he was done 18 years ago.

    The guy had his best 50 start stretch from 2008-2009 at ages 41-42. That was 2 to 3 1/2 years ago. Before that he was 17-12 in 2007 and was 3rd in IP helping us make the playoffs.

    As opposed to Lackey, who in his last two starts has given up 11 ER in 8 IP? Or Miller, who in his last two starts has given up 11 ER in 6 1/3 IP?

    As for being a "Wakefield supporter" ... guilty as charged. He plays for the Red Sox, and I support him.

    Excellent use of stats.  I like the way you combined W/L with ERA and Whip, and his role on the team relative to his salary.

    It seems like half the board doesn't even realize what numbers are.

    As Lloyd said before, yep, as a Sox fan, I'm a Wake supporter.  What strange concept.  Congrats to Wake for his 200th win!

    6 years ago, Wake was 16-12  (4.15/1.234)
    4 years ago, Wake was 17-12  (4.76/1.349)
    3 years ago, Wake was 10-11, but was 5th in the AL with a 1.182 WHIP.
    2 years ago, Wake made the allstar team going 11-3 before getting hurt (team 13-4).

    Here's his numbers from age 29-33 (normal prime) 1996-2000:
    14-13  5.14/1.550
    12-15  4.25/1.391
    17-8    4.58/1.343
    6-11    5.08/1.557
    6-10    5.48/1.475

    Well deserved!  The man is a great human being first and a solid MLB pitcher second.  We should all be so lucky!

    Yeah, Wake has let up a ton of HRs, but it also seems like he might lead the league in most infield hits allowed as well. 

    Strange for a flyball pitcher.

    Not so much for a knuckle-baller. The pitch is hard for a hitter to size up.
    That's why his BAPIP is generally good. His fielders get more reaction time.

    Re: All you Wake supporters...

    tbs, well said, but remember that Wastefield is popular amongst Red Sox fans. Of course, looking at his ERA for over 2 years, it reflected the embarrassing performance tonight and even more embarrassing gold watch ceremony. If it was merit this guy would have been released a long time ago, or certainly not been given another contract after 2009.

    It did compromise the integrity of the game and the merits of the roster spots, and anyone who sees Wastefield on a playoff roster should picket. Get the emotion and sappy nonsense out of the way and put this old horse on his 55 million dollar Florida bass boat estate.
