Ho-hum. Wake is 2 wins away from his 200th career victory.
On Wednesday night, Tim Wakefield pitched 7 innings, allowed 3 runs,
1 walk and 7 Ks with his knuckleball. The Red Sox beat the Blue Jays 6-4.
Wake gives it everything he's got! It's all about maximum torque...

The Tigers avoided a sweep by defeating the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim of Orange County of California of the Pacific Rim 5-4.
Miguel Cabrera hit his 18th homer along with 2 RBIs and V-Mart added
2 RBIs too. Hopefully V-Mart goes to the All-Star Game. The dude's hitting .323 with 6 dingers and 48 RBIs. Fan balloting ended at 4 PM today.

Dick Williams died today.
Williams managed the Red Sox' 1967 "Impossible Dream" team.
He took Carl Yastrzemski, Tony Conigliaro, Rico Petrocelli and the boys all the way to the World Series. The '67 Red Sox won the American League Pennant but lost Game 7 of the World Series to the St. Louis Cardinals.
Dick Williams went on to win 2 World Series Championships with the Oakland Athletics in 1972 and '73. He also won the National League Pennant with the 1984 San Diego Padres.
Williams managed the Boston Red Sox, Oakland A's, California Angels, Montreal Expos, San Diego Padres and Seattle Mariners during a 21-year career.
He was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 2008.
Williams passed away in his Las Vegas home from what was believed to be a brain aneurysm. He was 82.
