Sometimes he’s Shakey Wakey. Sometimes he’s Tim the Enchanter. Sometimes he’s the guy who’s kicking your ass with an infuriatingly effective knuckleball. Tonight, that guy showed up, limiting the Snakes to two hits over seven innings. Two hits? Man, on an off night, Wake’s given up two hits before he even leaves his house to head to the ballpark. But tonight, he was all business, showing up the old man (Randy Johnson is at least a couple years Tim’s senior) and helping us close out the homestand on a positive note.
Tomorrow’s an off day, peeps. More time to think about not what Tim Wakefield can do for you, but what you can do for Tim Wakefield.
