Who, in the name of all that is holy, does Wake have to kill/bribe to get that increasingly elusive 2ooth win?
This is a guy who does more for charity than any other player in Boston, had done everything from start to mop up to relieve over the years, had to suffer the indignity of Aaron Effing Boone hitting that home run off of him in '03 and handled it with more class than your average student body President, and would probably do your paper route for you if you asked him nicely.
He's 430 years old and he's still the guy I wanna be when I finally grow up, and he can't buy that win if he had Donald Trump and Warren Buffett bankrolling him. He had a 4-1 lead and before you could un-cork the celebratory bottle of Dom it was 9-4 and he was sitting on the bench with a Thousand Yard Stare on his face, wondering how in the world it came to this.
Next shot is in Texas next week, and while I want him to get that 200th win more than I want Trot to stop peeing the bed at night?
My heart wants him to get it at Fenway.
Just seems right.
