According to Barry Mesiter, the agent for Tim Wakefield, the knuckleballer turned down four contract offers for this coming season -- including one guaranteed major league offer -- in order to either return for or retire as a Red Sox.I just hope that Tex's retirement goes down like this. It's always hard to see your team's great players go to other teams in the twilight of their career. I myself am still scarred by the sight of Thurman Thomas playing one last sad season in Miami - Miami! - before calling it quits.
