Curt Schilling: Don't compare Trevor Bauer's bloody finger to my bloody sock
Schilling is not interested in being Bauer's brother in blood
If Trevor Bauer's bloody pinky during Game 3 of the ALCS conjured a comparison, it was the obvious one to Curt Schilling and his gushing ankle.
For those too young or scatterbrained to remember, Schilling pitched Game 6 of the 2004 ALCS with an injured ankle -- a condition that lead to a blood-soaked sock. Since Schilling is as outspoken as any former ballplayer, you probably expected he'd weigh in on Bauer's pinky. Sure enough, he did.
Yet despite being a brother in blood, Schilling exhibited no fondness for Bauer's guts, nor empathy for losing precious body fluids on the mound during an important game. Rather, Schilling tweeted a ... well, a message brimming with animosity for Bauer and the situation as a whole:
Please don't tweet at me about Bauer.He cost himself a start, likely more, AND his teammates, and fans, dicking around with a drone. #stupid— Curt Schilling (@gehrig38) October 18, 2016
So there you have it. Schilling ain't having your Bauer-related tweets.
