"There's a critiquing done by people, sometimes it's from a little less than informed opinion I guess, from the media standpoint. Sometimes they miss the important details. Yesterday everybody was talking about how good my fastball was, but if you go back and look at the video, I had just no command of my fastball. I was wild inside the strike zone which is not something I do a lot and it was one of those days where if I had good command of my fastball, I could have had a good day. I felt pretty good yesterday from a physical standpoint... I'm so tired of trying to sit here on a daily basis now and measure progress after a loss. At the same time, I'm tired of moping. Whatever it was (progress or not), it's over. We lost. And I've got to get ready for Saturday now." -- 9.6, Curt Schilling on WEEI's Dennis and Callahan re: his performance on Monday
