Actually, only one person's said it besides you...He's just said it a couple times.



Anyway...The fact that he was able to stay in the game could be a good sign...but not necesarrily. Pretty much anyone coming back from an injury is going to "play through some pain". Sometimes, it works...and sometimes, it just makes it worse.

Curt seems to me like a guy who really wants to get back in the majors, and will convince himself that he can just play through the pain. I just hope he's not gonna hurt himself trying to do it quicker than he should be...

And he may very well be pretty healthy...but a terrible game could mean he's not perfectly on the schedule back that they thought he'd be...

I think he's just extremely rusty.... i mean Schmidt was bad for most of ST then got it together at the end. He might need another minor outing to work on his stuff, maybe it's an idea to bench him for his first start, but i really don't think he's unhealthy.

Btw surely it should be 'Schelled?'

104 pitches is a TON of pitches. If he was not well, we wouldnt see that many.

In a minor league stint, you throw to get your arm up to big league standards. Throwing a lot of strikes.

"...working on his mechanics and throwing mostly 90 mph fastballs they could just sit there and wait for the pitch."

To me, this was just an extended spring training game for Schilling. And as we all know, spring training stats are meaningless. The only thing meaningful from today's performance is that he pitched 6 innings, and threw a game's worth of pitches. As with any pitcher rehabbing, it will be important to see how he feels tomorrow. But I'm not worried. !+)

Schilling Pitches 6 Innings for Pawtucket

Thursday, April 7, 2005


(04-07) 16:37 PDT Indianapolis (AP) --


Curt Schilling gave up seven runs in six innings in a rehabilitation start for Boston's Triple-A Pawtucket farm team Thursday, appearing to grow stronger as the game progressed and showing no signs of lingering effects from his offseason ankle surgery.


The World Series MVP allowed 11 hits, including two solo homers, a triple and a double. He struck out six and walked none, throwing 77 of 104 pitches for strikes in a 7-5 loss to the Indianapolis Indians.


After throwing 47 pitches and struggling with left-handed hitters in the first two innings, he retired 12 of his last 16 batters, striking out four.


Schilling, scheduled to start against the New York Yankees at Fenway Park on Wednesday, allowed homers to Edwards Guzman in the first inning and to Ryan Doumit in the third. Schilling threw strikes on 14 of his 17 pitches in the first inning.


He threw 18 balls and 18 strikes in the second, giving up four runs and five hits. Yurendell de Caster led off with a double, and Guzman hit a two-run single down the right field line.


Schilling was sharper in the third inning, throwing five balls and five strikes, and in the fourth, when he threw seven strikes and two balls.


Nate McLouth got a fifth-inning triple when his sinking liner skipped past left fielder Chip Ambres. Graham Koonce followed with an RBI single, but Schilling finished the inning by striking out the next two batters.

Pitchers don't always go all out in the minor leagues. It's not about winning the game in rehab assignments. In rehab, you want to ensure your healthy, make sure you have your control. I didn't see the game, but I bet he didn't go to the split that often.

His pitch count shows that they weren't worried.
I'm back. Sorta.
