FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Tim Wakefield told the media Saturday that he expects to be a starter in the rotation when the season begins. "My role in the rotation, I plan on being one of the five starters. As long as I'm healthy during spring training and there's no setbacks, then when we start the season I think I'll be one of the five," Wakefield said. The 43-year-old pitcher told the media he spoke with general manager Theo Epstein, manager Terry Francona and pitching coach John Farrell and said, "I think Theo, Tito and John all feel we're a better team with me in the rotation."
