Episode 449: Tim Wakefield Section 10 Podcast

    • Baseball

Tim Wakefield joins the podcast as our string of guests on Section 10 continues! We talk to Tim about Pedro's legacy, his famous knuckleball and its ideal speed, if he had any gas left in the tank to try to break the record for most wins as a Red Sox pitcher, the best Red Sox team he's played for, being there for the beginning of David Ortiz's rise to stardom, Kevin Millar's influence in the 2004 ALCS comeback against the Yankees, Varitek's struggles catching his knuckleball in Game 5 of that ALCS, his favorite non-baseball memory of 2004, his relationship with players on the Yankees during that era, whether the Red Sox/Yankees rivalry will ever be the same, if his demeanor on the mound and the unpredictability of the knuckleball is a metaphor for how he lives his life, his Roberto Clemente award in 2010, Johnny Damon, and his celebrity status in Boston after the 2004 saga. Tim then executes an all-time exit to the interview. We talk for a few minutes about Coley's role in the Red Sox signings of international players before we get into the main topic of the rest of the episode; a deep dive into spiders and bees.
