Pictures of Schilling's ankle

I think it's safe to say that he was really hurt. (Apologies coming from the Baltimore Sun, the John Heyman?--I doubt it.)

Sure, he talks too much, but that doesn't take away from what he did.

Thanks for the link....I can't imagine trying to pitch on that. I've had some messed up ankles in my life also, and there's no way I'd be able to pitch with that.

However, we all have to remember that he was given cortisone shots for pain, so those pictures are probably a little deceiving. Not to say he wasn't in pain, I'm sure he was, but not quite like the pain we are all thinking after seeing those pictures.

Relax Sox fans, I'm not taking anything away from Schilling...he was magnificent. 8-o

that looks bad but i have seen worse (ruptured achilles). is it me or does schilling have chicken legs? seriously, they looked pretty skinny aside from the swelled part. maybe the swelling just makes the rest of his leg look small.

For the record, he said he wasn't pitching in pain.

And, yeah, those are some skinny ankles.

The conspiracy theorist in me wonders why they don't show the body attached to the ankle in question. :-b But, I do think that saying he was faking the injury is bull****.

I think it'd be hard to walk on that thing, nevermind pitch on it.

Not with all of those painkillers. :-b I think that he should have those calluses removed as well. :-D
