Schilling Gets 10 Strikeouts for the 92nd Time in his Career, First in '06

Speaking of Curt, Here's What Pedro
Had to Say About the Sox Ace...

"Schilling is 38, I'm only 33. The fact that I had an off-year doesn't mean that I can be below Schilling. Still, with an off-year, I'm way over Schilling as a pitcher and I've pitched pretty much like Schilling the last few years... Schilling's not taking anything away from me... And they should have thought about the rest of the stuff and not just Curt Schilling and his personal catcher. And all Theo argued was 'Schilling got this, Schilling got that.' Everything we were going to negotiate was based on what they did with Schilling... Schilling doesn't even work with us. Schilling cannot run with me." -- 12.16.04, Pedro Martinez to the Boston Herald's Michael Silverman

" 'He [Phillies pitcher Brett Myers] was dragging her by the hair and slapping her across the face,' Knight said. 'She was yelling, `I'm not going to let you do this to me anymore.' "

"Knight said the 6-foot-4 -inch, 240-pound ballplayer dwarfed his wife, whom police report at 5 feet 4 inches and 120 pounds.

" 'She's a real small girl,' Knight said. 'It was awful.'

"Knight said Myers was undeterred by the presence of her and her friends.

" 'He had her on the ground,' Knight said. 'He was trying to get her to go, and she was resisting. She curled up and sat on the ground. He was pulling her, her shirt was up around her neck. . . . He could have cared less that we were there.' " -- 6.24.06, Suzanne Smalley, Boston Globe
