Without overreacting, if Schill doesn't work out over time, we may have to part ways with a prospect for more bullpen help and that would upset me. As I said, we'll give it time; Curt's comeback is a lot longer than one game.

Yeah I mean, I usually can throw something to the wall in any situation just to give a possible solution. But I can't really pull anything outta my head as of yet.

Basically what Sut said was that Curt wasn't pushing off with his ankle, and it wobbled on the pitch prior to the double to Sheff. They replayed a couple other pitches and it just showed he was just putting weight on it but not putting much push into it. Much like he was pitching in game 1 of the ALCS I believe.

I know its early, and this is only one appearence, but the only thing that really sticks out in my head right now is that Curt should/could just sit it out for the remainder of the year. Or continue to rehab down in Pawtucket and hopefully figure "it" out. I don't believe it's a mindset or mechanical problem as much as it is a problem with the ankle itself still.

But what the hell do I know?

What a dissapointing loss. I hope it doesnt overshadow the fact that it really was a GREAT game. Except for the ump.

Yeah, Wendelstedt was having a tough night for both teams.

The Sox got off to the hot start but let the Yankees hang around. Schilling had nothing in the 9th. He doesn't have the offspeed stuff to get away with high 80s and low 90s fastballs. Hopefully it was just a bad day for him and he can get it going after a few outings.

No need to panic, we've got Leskanic..... oh crap, we don't.

It's going to take some time to determine if this Schilling experiment is gonna work. I'm not ready to judge him after facing 2 of the best hitters in the game in his first game back. At this point, he needs to pitch, whether it's good or bad. The Red Sox were good enough to survive a few bad outings from Foulke and they're good enough to survive the same with Schill.

I am not doubting him based on this one performance, but I doubted this before it happened. They shoulda just let him work up his stamina and bring him back in September if it took that long, we need this guy in the rotation. I just can't believe that we would take this huge risk when we have a guy like Timlin who can do it.

lol I've been thinking about Curtis alot lately. But I always referred to him as Curtis Letspanic. Whatever happened to Mike MacDougal??
I remember looking at his numbers a week or so ago and they weren't that bad. Anything would be an improvement to our already lacklust BP IMO.
