blogger Curt didn't hide after a horrible start in Kansas City, it does make for an interesting read

Not sure where to even start. Two words sum it up best, no command. Canít remember a game where I couldnít make adjustments but today was certainly one of those. Not so much the secondary pitches but no fastball command is not something that happens much, if at all, over an entire game (even if the Ďgameí for me only lasts 4 innings).

All five runs score with 2 outs. I had more than ample chances to make this a game, and never did. Inconsistent command and horrific execution cost us the game. When you are facing a guy like Gil certain things can make it easier or harder. Heíll walk some guys if you give your offense a chance. His stuff is so good that when offenses have to press against him, or their down and need to make something happen, he can eat you up. After the first he settled into a nice groove and executed. He pitched a hell of a game and hats off to the KC fans, this towns always been a great baseball city with great sports fans, pretty sure the day and the standing O will be lifetime memories, just always hope you arenít the guy on the other side when someone has one of those kinds of days. I never let us get into the game after the first. Every inning they pushed and I didnít push back.

I like his comments on Meche...Gil is like a Vasquez to me. He has the stuff but never put it all together. Nice to see that Schilling won't pull punches on his opening-day suckage.
