Game 32: Or Maybe We're Just Not That Good?
Tim Wakefield resides in the Red Sox clubhouse in a glass box which reads, "In case of emergency, break glass". Emergency raised its ugly head on Friday, as a Wednesday game that drained the bullpen because it lasted 11 million innings was followed by a Thursday game that drained the bullpen because John Lackey is manifestly unqualified to pitch in Little League. After breaking the glass and sending Timmeh to the hill, however, the sons of Harmon Killebrew showed Tim Wakefield, Emergency Starter, no mercy, battering him from pillar to post last night in a 9-2 bloodbath.
