For whatever reason, Tim Wakefield has long been my favorite Red Sox player. Actually, strike that, it makes a lot of sense -- he's been a Red Sox for almost as long as I've been a fan. He'll hopefully appear in the All Star game tomorrow night, and today the Globe ran a nice story about him. I'll never forget his call-up with the Sox in 1995; as Wikipedia notes, "He began the season with a 1.65 ERA and a 14-1 record through 17 games - 6 of which were complete games."
