Tim Wakefield has not been welcomed back with open arms by the Sox as he hoped. At 45, he wants to come back, but no one really wants him. By this weekend, Wakefield will make his decision whether he will retire or make a run for another season in the majors.
As a result of the dilemma, Wakefield's agent, Barry Meister, said a verdict on his client is looming, according to the Boston Herald.
"We're discussing the options -- and he has some options -- and over the next few days, we're going to try to figure it out," Meister told the paper. "These next few days is just a period of introspection, where he's trying to decide what to do, whether to play, who to play for."
If he decides to make a return, Boston may not be a team in the mix. Just preparing everyone for the heartbreak.
