Where Have You Gone Tim Wakefield?

When your 4th outfielder is throwing 83 mph in the top of the 17th inning you know you've had one of those games.
After staying up for a 13 inning loss Friday night I missed Saturdays game due to work and I think God knew I needed the break.
17 innings, every relief pitcher on the team except for 1 used (Bobby V must be saving him for tomorrow night against the Royals, although he must be assuming Dubront is going 8), Pedie playing like it's game 7 and for one brief moment the vision of Marlon Byrd being the hero in the first walk off game of the year.
After it was all over and I angrily shut off the stupid Orioles broadcast I had an epiphany. Or something.
If that game hadn't have involved the Red Sox I'd be saying it was one of the best games I'd seen.
Off to Kansas City tomorrow where I'm hoping the road trip of last week repeats itself.
