    Schilling loses again.....

    It is so satisfying to watch this guy struggle. He couldn't stand not being the center of attention, he needed to be back in the limelight so badly that he rushed his own return, telling the team he was "ready." He clearly wasn't.

    He was awful as a closer and is getting beat up as a starter. I saw his previous start vs. the Devil Rays, they were smacking balls off the monster like it was racquetball. He lost again today, and although his stat line looks like "progress" to optimistic Sox fans, he gave up 4ERs and 9 hits in six innings against a team with a .263 team BA. Plus 3 walks and hit a guy. That isn't good.

    ESPN Baseball Tonight guy (forget his name, looks like a hockey player) keeps saying that Schilling's last few outings show "progress" and "signs that he is back". Unreal.....

    More rose-colored analysis:
    Schilling (5-7) gave up four runs, nine hits, three walks and a hit batter in 6 1/3 innings, striking out four. Still, it was the first time in six starts this season that Schilling, who is recovering from ankle surgery, allowed fewer than five earned runs.

    It was awesome last year in Game 6 when he choked vs the Yanks too, oh wait a minute, it was the Yanks who orchestrated the greatest choke in the history of sports, wasn't it? Big Papi is your daddy.

    Bottom line is that Mr Schilling is far from ready, and he is doing more to hurt the Bosox then help.

    Dear Giddy Boston Fan,

    This may come as a shock to you, but 1 for 87 isn't good. Finally coming out on top vs. the Yanks doesn't erase the countless years of demoralizing ***-kickings NY has given Boston over and over and over and over again. I'm sure you try to block them out now but they still happened, and outside of the New England area Boston is still a joke with a one-season fluke. Little reality check for ya there big fella.

    And by the way, you'll notice that no one is calling last year "The Greatest Comeback Ever", it is always referred to as a "choke". The Yanks suffered a mental collapse and fell apart.
