• Bloody Sock Helped Tigers Over Yanks?

    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.

      Given the state of scouting and video, etc. I don’t see why any anonymous tipster’s help really matters. There are really no secrets in the game. Everyone knows that the Yanks are patient and if you get on them with quick strikes, it makes ANY hitter, not just the Yankees, a defensive bunch.

      So if it was Schilling (or anyone else), nice try, asshole. Don’t get cramps patting yourself on the back for doing something that tons of pitchers have done before.

      Great Yankee fan minds think alike. I posted this on Sunday at 5:30 p.m. as soon as I read that Bonderman got help. I’m glad we all think so highly of Curt Schilling.
