Red Sox 07 Game 63 Post 2

So, was taking a look at some of Wakefield's numbers. Did you know that 4 starts at Fenway he has a 1 and 3 record with a 6.46 ERA and a WHIP of 1.61. Averaging 5.92 IP per game. He beat the Angels, lost to Toronto (quality start), Detroit and the Spankees. If you drop the Spankees start in which he only went 3 2/3 innings, he would have a 4.05 ERA with a 1.35 Whip which is quite respectable.

He also averaged 6.67 IP per those three starts. In his last 5 starts over all he has a 7.98 ERA with a 1.70 WHIP, averaging 5.87 innings per outing. This reflects two Yankee appearances in which he went the 3 2/3 and 5 IP. If you remove those two games he has a 5.23 ERA and 1.21 WHIP. What does it all mean?

If you throw out two horrible outings he has been respectable. Todd Helton is the only Rocky that has faced Wakefield, lets hope the wind is swirling and that he has the knuckler working tonight.
