Tim Wakefield

The Red Sox win tonight gives starter Tim Wakefield 192 for his career. That puts him in a tie with Lon Warneke "The Arkansas Hummingbird" for 134th place on the all-time wins list.

Surprisingly - Wakefield is also 60th all-time in strikeouts with 2030. He needs another 15 to tie Dazzy Vance. Wakefield is ahead of some very well known names on that list like Orel Hershiser, Catfish Hunter, Whitey Ford and he's 200 ahead of Old Hoss Radbourn. Wakefield has amassed those K's in 4 less games started than Hall of Famer Whitey Ford too.
