Much like they did with Jason Varitek, the Red Sox have kept Tim Wakefield in the organization with a job as a special assignment instructor and honorary chairman of the Red Sox Foundation.

Wakefield played 17 seasons for the Red Sox, the last of which was 2011, and the knuckleballer has the third-most wins in franchise history behind Cy Young and Roger Clemens.

Last year Varitek took a job with the Red Sox as a special assistant to the general manager, but according to the press release Wakefield’s gig will focus on fundraising and charity events while also including “specific instructional assignments for general manager Ben Cherington and his staff.”

    That was a knuckleheaded comment.

    How would you like a knuckle sandwich?
