    Damn this is horrible news. Wake was my son's favorite player growing up and the only card/autograph collecting I could ever get him into was for Tim Wakefield cards.

    The Red Sox family lost a good one. RIP

    Very sad. Difficult to hear. RIP.

    really terrible. but even more terrible is his wife currently suffering from pancreatic cancer, in which there is never a good prognosis. i can't even imagine the amount of heartbreak for family and friends.

    yet another in a long list of reminders of why you should never sweat the small stuff in life, ever

    I remember Of Tim being such a great teammate. He was always willing to do whatever the manager asked of him to help the Sox win. I remember for about 3-4 years, the Sox used him in every way imaginable. in relief, spot starter, whenever he was needed. It must have been hard on him, not being able to get into a routine, which is so important for a pitcher.

    I do not remember of him ever complaining during these years.

    Tim Wakefield, a great teammate.

    He was one of the great ones for sure and his number should be considered for retirement.

    So very sad about one of everyone’s favorite players. I think we all remember the time he pitched all those innings to help a tired pitching staff. I’m sure he was an incredible team mate.
    Pancreatitis has no cure I believe so this is a heartbreaking story.
    God love them both.
