Tim Wakefield and the Hall of Fame

The king of the knuckleball fraternity has stepped down, relinquishing the title to R.A. Dickey.  Last year Wakefield joined the 200-Win Club and ends his career with an even 200 victories.  The veteran pitcher worked 19 years in the Major Leagues and amassed over 3,200 innings pitched.  A former All-Star, Tim spent all but two years of his big league career with the Boston Red Sox and rests high in many lifetime BoSox pitching stats.  Not a bad career for a failed first baseman.
