Just a couple of finger sandos to whet yer appetite, while I compile the Hand for today:
*** A 14 pound baby?
Now that's a big twinkie. That's a big dog.
*** And some tempered excitement for the Citzens of Red Sox Nation: Schilling was killing
. And that's thrilling. Pretty soon, he'll be back at Fenway, top billing. Boy, this burrito is very filling. Run DMC sang "You Be Illing." And when we repeat the feat in October, the champagne will be chilling and the championship rings will be milling.
It was an encouraging outing, with Schilling pitching on 66 days rest. 57 of his 78 pitches were strikes. And, at one point, he threw 15 straight strikes. He regularly hit 90-92 on the gun, topping out at 94. And any questions about his surgically repaired ankle were allayed as he covered first base on a come-back chopper to the mound.
That's it for now. Hand later. Come on back now, y'hear?
