I think Cy and Rocket can relax

Tim Wakefield is 14 wins behind Roger Clemens and Cy Young for the all time wins mark in Red Sox history... and while I have been wrong before when I've given up on Wakes, yesterday's debacle was kinda sorta brutal.

I would love to see Wakes tie them... but at this point I don't see him making 14 more starts.

16 years as a Red Sox and few people have worn the uniform with the class and respect as #49.

He should get standing ovations and not have to pay for a meal from Hamden CT to Houlton ME.

But I have a feeling it is coming to an end.
I would want nothing more than to eat my words.

  4. Shoot, you can vulture way more wins as a reliever than a starter nowadays anyway if you're put in the right situations.
