I’ve been saying that the cold weather, the bone-chilling cold weather we’ve had, isn’t good for pitching in particular. I think Phil Hughes‘ subpar start tonight had a lot to do with the weather. And words from the keyboard of Curt Schilling, of all people, support my theory. Said Curt earlier this week: “I hate cold weather from a feel standpoint.” As I’ve said, in the cold, pitchers have no feel for their pitches. Don’t judge one bad Phil Hughes start because it was 40 degrees with a threat of snow. Baseball is a warm weather sport for a reason.
In order to cover my ass, I’ll go ahead and say that I think this is a post-April Fool’s joke. But Dave Pinto at Baseball Musings is reporting that Curt Schilling was grazed by a side-view mirror of an SUV. His source is a radio bit. There is no further information. Stay tuned for any developments.
Update: Of course, it’s a hoax. Only a moronic Bostonian would pull an April Fool’s joke the day after.
As much as we don’t like Curt Schilling for his success against the Yankees, a statement in one of his recent blog posts makes me think he’s reading our site. After I criticized him for seemingly interviewing himself, Schilling wrote, “Since some people mistakenly thought that the Q&A was me interviewing myself, no idea how that could happen, I have taken to pasting questions instead of trying to paraphrase them.” Well, that’s neat. A real live Major Leaguer has read River Ave. Blues!
(Also, I think it was that confusing use of the personal I in the form of the interview, Curt. It wasn’t very clear.)
Intrepid blogger Curt Schilling posted an interview today. With himself. That he conducted in the first person. We don’t even need to think to make fun of Curt’s blog.
Never one to keep his mouth shut, Curt Schilling now has a blog. With comments. Go nuts. Just don’t tell him we sent you.
Hat tip to Petey.
