This from today's Boston Globe:
Tim Wakefield will announce his retirement at 5 p.m. today at JetBlue Park. Wakefield, 45, was 200-180 with a 4.41 ERA in 627 appearances in his 19-year career. The Florida native spent the final 17 seasons with the Red Sox, going 186-168 with a 4.43 ERA over 590 games. He is third in team history for victories, trailing only Cy Young and Roger Clemens, who each had 192.He wasn't that fun to watch, but he was a huge contributor to the Red Sox over the years. While he struggled quite a bit over the past two years, he always wanted to play and he always wanted to win. Thanks, Wake, for all you've done for the Sox!
