    Posted by Bill-806[/QUOTE]Everybody is entitled to what they believe and feel. There were tears in my eyes as well. The difference is they were tears of joy. The one thing he said that I agree with is "it's best for the club". You can't believe for a minute that it was "his idea to retire".

    Beckett = BAD, Wakefield = GOOD...yet I believe he was equally culpable in chickengate. Maybe if he and the others didn't sing about how much they like beer, chickengate may never have happened.

    Bill has never been the swiftest duck boat, but I think he was actually sincere in his appreciation of Wakefield.

    Maybe so, but do you think Wake would like to shake softy and BILL'S hands after all this belated praise. This reminds me of softy trying to claim Mikey was his favorite player ... after he retired. 

    Sorry, I don't buy it.

    Moon, I know, too many fans have taken way too much time to rip Tim, and never really sat down and appreciated like a few of us here, his importance to a lot of things Red Sox...But Bill I'm sure was sincere in his post. Hard to accept sincereness from him, but he was trying, and that's a lot better than some who still wisecrack on Tim like he was a cancer here.

    Posted by dannycater[/QUOTE]  LET'S JUST SAY THAT THE LAST FEW YEARS HIS MAIN JOB WAS TO "EAT INNINGS" FOR THE CLUB.....  DURING HIS TIME WITH THE SOX TIM WOULD DO WHAT EVER THE CLUB NEEDED.... WHEN THE "FLOATER" WAS ON AND HE GOT RUN SUPPORT (5/6/7/+) THEN HE GOT THE "W"........ AGAINST GOOD HITTING TEAMS, HE COULD HAVE A NO/NO GOING FOR THE FIRST 3 INNINGS AND THEN THE ROOF WOULD CAVE IN THE NEXT INNING.  HE DID STRETCH THEO'S/TITO'S ROTATION & THE PEN, SAVING ARMS TO FIGHT ANOTHER DAY......  AND LAST YEAR WITH 90 WINS (AND WASN'T ENOUGH) YOU NEEDED TO LOOK AT ABOUT 10-12 OF HIS DECISIONS  (LOSS/NO DECISION) ALONG WITH THE SEPTEMBER TEAM SWOON AND YOU CAN SEE WHY THE SOX WERE PLAYING GOLF IN OCTOBER...........  MAKE NO MISTAKE ABOUT IT, HE HAD A GREAT RUN, A GREAT STORY FOR RED SOX NATION, A GREAT STORY FOR THE FUTURE YOUTH OF AMERICAN SPORTS......  HOWEVER, AS DAD WOULD SAY...."SON, TIME & TIDE WAITS FOR NO MAN" !!!   GOD BLESS TIM WAKEFIELD & THANK YOU VERY MUCH !!!!

    Tim is a true class player. It is not an easy feat to be employed by a private company for 17 years, forget about playing that long for a sports team like the Redsox. No matter what we say about his value to the team, the management saw great value in keeping him for that long.

    If any of you are mature enough and worked for a private company for that many years, my hats off to you. This guy gave it all and we all should keep personal bickerings aside and congratulate him, be thankful for what he was able to offer. He will for sure one of my favorite player and a person.
