Schilling upset over comparison

Curt Schilling believes his bloody sock shouldn’t be compared to Cleveland Indians pitcher Trevor Bauer’s bloody finger.

Bauer started Game 3 of the ALCS against Toronto on Monday but threw just 21 pitches before getting removed as blood dripped from his hand. Bauer cut his finger last week repairing a drone that he flies as a hobby.

That led to parallels to Schilling’s Game 6 victory over the New York Yankees in the 2004 ALCS while pitching with an injured ankle that left his sock stained with blood.

“Please don’t tweet at me about Bauer,” Schilling said on Twitter. “He cost himself a start, likely more, AND his teammates, and fans, (messing) around with a drone. #stupid.”
