Tim Wakefield Proving Doubters Wrong With Remarkable 2011 Season

At the beginning of the 2011 season, some wondered if it was even worth having Tim Wakefield on the Red Sox roster. His only role, it appeared, would be to eat up innings in long relief.

NESN.com Red Sox reporter Tony Lee spoke about Wakefield's remarkable season on Baseball Today on CBSSports.com on Wednesday.
