From the AP -
Curt Schilling has been missing his overpowering stuff since his near no-hitter on June seventh.
That bid at Oakland was broken up with two outs in the ninth.
In his last two starts, Schilling has given up 19 hits and 11 earned runs in nine and one-third innings.
The six runs he allowed to the Atlanta Braves in a 9-to-4 loss last Monday were a season-high for Schilling. His four and one-third innings was his shortest stay on the mound since opening day. In that one, he lasted only four innings at Kansas City for his briefest start since 2001.
Against the Braves, was rocked for 10 hits and had no strikeouts for the first time since July First, 1993.
Has his recent no-hit attempt done the same to the Red Sox Curt Schilling?
Once upon a time, I thought Cone and Schilling were the same. That was three and a half years ago, thereabouts. Maybe I was right – just at the wrong time?
A cooked Schilling would do wonders for the Yankees chances in the A.L. East this season.
