Tim Wakefield already is getting back surgery, the last thing we need him to do is break a leg, if you know what I mean. In the first half, Wakefieldwent 11-3 and made the all-star team, in the second half, however, he went 0-2 in 4 starts. Hopefully Wakefield's gimpy back can be helped by this surgery as he needs to get a herniated disk repaired in his back on Wednesday. (10-21-09) Hopefully Wakefield will be able to pitch again in 2010, as the Sox will try to exercise his $4 million contract for next year. (not good to have $4 million go down the drain) If you have done the math, you have realized that Tim Wakefield went a respectable 11-5 to finish the season. The problem was the ERA at 4.58, and the WHIP at 1.44, other than that he had very good stats to finish the year. Sox can win it all next year!
