"I'm very comfortable throwing to Georgie. He's got unbelievable hands. I know he's doing a lot of work with Gary Tuck as far as catching knuckleballs on the machine twice a day. Just getting his comfort level there. But as far as I'm concerned, I'm very comfortable throwing to him. I thought he did an outstanding job last night." -- 3.25.09, Tim Wakefield on WEEI's Dale and Holley
