"I'm not really sure that any of it was intentional, but he kept hitting players. And when you're a young pitcher and you can't pitch inside, you don't. Because what you end up doing is getting players on your own team hurt. And that's a byproduct of rushing guys to the big leagues."

What Schilling failed to consider, however, were the facts. In seven career starts against the Red Sox, Kazmir hit five batters. In those seven games, Boston pitchers hit 10 Rays.

"We made it clear to them, for the most part, in that context, that we were only throwing at guys on their team because their young pitcher couldn't throw inside," Schilling said. "Obviously he's getting better at it, he's learning. But you don't learn to pitch in the big leagues inside. You learn how to do that in the minor leagues. If you can't do it, don't do it here because you end up getting people hurt."]]

don't have a direct link but it's from the St Pete times, I believe

Schilling REALLY needs to STFU

Schilling also made comments about Lou and the Rays color commentator last year so that may have brought on some of the comments made. I missed the first inning so I didn't catch them.

No surprise the Red Sox offense woke up tonight. Waechter is inconsistant and when he's off he sucks. Doesn't help the Rays have commited 4 errors either.

Re: Boston Red Sox - 2006

What the stats don't say is when those hit batters occurred. Schill just gave the team's interpretation of the hit batsmen. Kazmir probably also had lots of near hits that aren't going to show up any stats and the Sox didn't take kindly to those. Obviously, it was an exaggerration on his part to say that Kazmir hits multiple guys every start against the Sox.

Youkilis has just been awesome. I like Crisp, but Youk is making it pretty tough to take him out of the leadoff spot.

Re: Boston Red Sox - 2006

Crisp can do more for the Sox hitting lead-off than Youk can. And Youk can do more for the Sox hitting lower in the order. They need a bat towards the bottom of the order that is a threat to drive in some runs.

I know two of those came in 04 after Arroyo hit I think Huff and Tino Matrinez the half inning before. Kazmir hit two batters the next inning and gained a lot of respect from his teammates for that. So Schilling should know that if Arroyo was going to hit guys, the Sox batters were going to face something the next inning. I'd just throw that out there. I've had enough arguments with Red Sox fans over this on another board that I don't feel like going through it again so after this one post I'll be done discussing it. Kazmir has better control now and has pitched well against the Sox so tommorow's game should be closer than this one was.

Re: Boston Red Sox - 2006

Does Willy Mo know that he can get more then three pitches for every at bat if he waits for pitches and doesn't swing at everything?

Homerun for Mohr!!
