Then how come he isn't even going to start game 2 for the sox.

And his era and whip is higher than 4 yankee starters.

He won 17 games because of run support.

Greg Maddux, Roger Clemens, and Mark Prior are all starting game 3 for their teams as well.. are you gonna try and tell me they arent good pitchers either?

in a 5 game series, game 3 is crucial, and more and more teams are catching on.

your talking about wakefield starting game 2 not pettite or wood or zambrano

they are starting wakefield in game 2 because its in oakland, which is a bigger ballpark than fenway, which is more beneficial to knuckleball pitchers, and to go along with game 3 being so crucial, derek lowe has historically pitched very well at fenway.

nevertheless, 17-7 means he gave his team a chance to win, which is the most important thing, especially in the playoffs... and in this hitters era, a 4.47 era in the American League isnt really all thet bad

yeah but he still held the leads.. anyways, hes starting game 3 because its a crucial game, whether you are up 2-0, down 0-2, or tied 1-1. its crucial, and they want a pitcher out there that can handle the pressure in front of those screaming red sox fans who have been waiting 85 years for a world series title, starting game 3 is nothing to be ashamed of

Yeah my picks... Braves 2... Chicago Cubs... 58 but this is only after the Braves put up an impressive fight and take the game into 15 innings.

Daaaaaaaaaaaa Cubs Da Cubs Da Cubs Da Cubs...

Okay... I'm going to bed... Stop pointing and laughing...

He's not starting Game #2 because he's a ground ball pitcher. Wakefield is a fly ball pitcher...the A's park is a huge area making fly ball pitchers more successfull..while Fenway is a ground ball pitchers' park.

Know your baseball d0od.

First off I have to say go TWINS. I have tickets to games 3 and 4 and I'm going to be yelling like crazy at the end of game 4 I hope (game 3 would be better but...). In the NL I have to root for the Giants. Sorry to all the apparent cubs fans out there but I don't see them beating the braves. I'll admit that it should be a good series but I think in the end it will be the braves. Anyway, Braves in 5, Giants in 4, Giants in 6, Twins in 4 (I have to), A's in 4, Twins in 6, and Giants in 7.

Philly blew it big time. Sigh.

Anyway, hoping to see a bos/nyc faceoff in the AL Championship. Go Sox. Just wouldn't be the same for Boston if they didn't have to go through the Yankees.
