From the New York Post -
Jeremy Bonderman wouldn’t name names, but he confirmed what every Yankee fan know. The Bronx Bombers, baseball’s $200 million team, have a lot of enemies in the baseball world.
Bonderman, who threw 81/3 innings of five-hit ball to lead the Tigers to a series-clinching 8-3 win over the Yankees, told The Post in a champagne-soaked Detroit clubhouse that he got tipped earlier this week on how to pitch the Bombers.
“I had a guy call me up a couple of days ago and give me insight about how to get these guys out, and I have all the thanks in the world for him to do that for me,” said Bonderman. “He didn’t have to do it. It was a great favor.”
Quick, someone get me the outgoing call logs for Curt Schilling’s cell phone covering the days of October 3rd through October 6th.
Schilling would fit the profile here – he studies hitters like no one else. And, he’s ballsie-enough to pick up the phone and make such a call.
Bonderman did look Schilling-ish on Saturday, at least to me.
