As we know, Curt Schilling had his hands full even without offering some chin music to A-Rod last night. The first series loss for the Sox in about a month is not a big deal in and of itself, yet Schill's recent performance is cause for concern. The big fella was somewhat testy when challenged on it this morning on WEEI.
The Sox will remain in strong shape if Beckett maintains something close to his early-season form, and if Schill can pitch a little bit better. It would be good to see Manny looking better at the plate, but if past performance is any guide, he will heat up with the warmer weather.
