Total Bases Mailbag 3

Here is the third edition of the TB mailbag. I’m doing it today, tomorrow I will be in Ft. Myers.

Q: How far will the cavs go in the playoffs?

Indians

A: I can see the Cavs going very deep. Though i won’t say they will go all the way, they seem to have trouble with Orlando. The Hawks are very good, and I think they may knock off a team like Cleveland or Boston. But with the Cavs, the loss of Shaq hurt them. I think Jamison may be out a while too, if I’m not mistaken.  The key is, as always, Lebron has to be great. And he will be.

Q: My question for the mailbag is: When will the Sox ever be-knuckle the knuckleball? Tim Wakefield has been pitching for a long time.

When is he going to retire?

Also, does Tom Brady ever make you wanna cry? He seems like a heartbreaker. 🙂

Ted

A: I don’t think Wakefield will retire for a few years. He’s a great option for the rotation. And when he’s on, he’s as unhittable as it gets. His problem has been his back. He was an all-star last year, and arguably the Red sox best pitcher, until the end of July. And don’t forget, he wants that Red Sox all-time wins leader.

I love Brady. Last year was an off year from him coming off ACL surgery. It was an all-around odd year for the Patriots. I hope to see the Pats lock up Brady long term, like the Colts did with Manning. Given the option of the two, I’d take Brady all-day. He did make me wanna cry when he got hurt in the 2008 season opener :(. Expect a bounce back year, in a contract year.

 

Thanks Everybody! The mailbag will be Sunday at it’s reguler time. Submit your questions here or on the Best Boston Sports.com Message Boards. Again, thank you!

    wow. Terrible news. Red Sox top prospect Ryan Westmoreland will undergo brain surgery. Sad. It’s reported to be life threatening surgery…. Best wishes Ryan. Hope to see you on the field soon.
