Tim Wakefield is a van-riding warrior.
Wakefield pitched three scoreless innings in a 9-0 victory over the Marlins on Tuesday. To top it all off, Wakefield took a three-hour van ride to get to Jupiter before the game. Now that is what I called a season veteran.
The Red Sox are now 5-2 in the spring. That's really great because ... uh, well, OK. It's just spring training, but winning is a good thing no matter what time of the season.
It's really nice to see the young guns producing. It seems like they've been doing that all spring, with a comeback win the other day rooted by the prospects. Unfortunately, none of these prospects are the ones the Red Sox are going to need this year unless there's an injury or two. Don't tell Josh Reddick that, though.
