TIM WAKEFIELD RUMORS

Tim Wakefield Not A Fan Of Red Sox Opening 2015 Vs. National League (Video)

The Boston Red Sox will open their 2015 schedule in a way they’ve never done before — against an interleague squad. The Sox will travel to Philadelphia to play the Phillies on Opening Day and will open their home schedule against the Washington Nationals. This means that two of Boston’s first three series will be against National League opponents — a schedule that the...

Tim Wakefield: R.A. Dickey ‘Doing What A Knuckleballer Should Do’ (Video)

The Toronto Blue Jays gave up a ton to get R.A. Dickey, and while he hasn’t been a Cy Young-caliber pitcher, he’s certainly been solid with Toronto. Dickey will get the ball Sunday in the series finale with the Red Sox, his 30th start of the season. It marks the fourth consecutive season he’s made 30 starts, and he’s been a workhorse in two seasons with the Jays. Former Red...

Your Morning Dump... Where Wakefield is back

Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here... highlighting the big storyline. Because there's nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump. The Red Sox announced yesterday that Wakefield will return to the organization as an honorary chairman of the Red Sox Foundation and as a special assignment instructor to the club’s baseball operations...

Wakefield turned down offers?

Tim Wakefield decided to retire after 19 seasons in the bigs, but did he walk away because of a lack of interest from teams? Maybe not.

Tim Wakefield's Place Among Knuckleball Pitchers

Tim Wakefield retired yesterday after a long career, most of it spent with the Boston Red Sox. Wakefield, of course, was a knuckleball pitcher and member of a small club of such pitchers in the history of Major League Baseball. Knuckleball pitchers are an oddity and we baseball fans love them. Why though? Perhaps we love knuckleball pitchers because it doesn't take an elite...

Here’s to You, Mr. Wakefield

Tim Wakefield wasn’t the best pitcher in Red Sox history (that’s Pedro Martinez), nor was he the most entertaining (guys like Bill “Spaceman” Lee, Luis Tiant and yes, Pedro, have that territory marked), but what he was one of the Nation’s favorites. For 17 years, he pitched, and acted, with the same stoicism. He never put himself above the game, and was always, always ready...

Has Tim Wakefield made a decision yet?

I guess I did not understand the statement by Barry Meister (Wakefield's agent), when he said Tim will be making a decision on his future soon. The decision whether Wake will attempt another year in the majors or hang up his cleats after 19 seasons (17 with Bos.) was supposed to be made by this past weekend. Nothing yet. Wakefield has stated numerous times in the past that he...

Wakefield will make decision on his future soon

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...

Wakefield is thinking about retirement

Grandpa Tim has muttered a word I did not think he was capable of saying. Retirement. It is not a definite route for Wake, who will turn 46 during the 2012 season, yet he has taken it into consideration. "I just saw that [Jorge] Posada retired, you know, it's something that my wife and I need to talk about," said the 45-year-old knuckleballer, according to FloridaToday...
