*hat tip - YFSF, What Does Amalie Know?*

As YFSF picked up, Tim Wakefield's name is omitted from the pitching options in the following response to a mailbag question of Amalie Benjamin.
"The Red Sox will count on nothing of the sort. Instead, with Josh Beckett, Jon Lester, and Daisuke Matsuzaka ahead of him in the rotation and Clay Buchholz and Michael Bowden getting ready behind him, the Sox will not be relying on Penny. They will, though, take what they can get, especially if that resembles at all the Penny of 2006 and 2007 rather than 2008."
