Red Sox star pitcher Curt Schilling lashed out at the media in a scathing 1,300-word post on his personal blog and offered $1 million to anyone who would prove that it was not blood that blotted his sock in the 2004 playoffs.
Schilling’s sock was put into question when Baltimore Orioles broadcaster Gary Thorne said Red Sox catcher Doug Mirabelli had told him it was paint, not blood, done for a publicity stunt. Thorne later said that he had misreported what he overheard. Despite this, Schilling still ripped Thorne and the media through his blog.
Anyone interested in Schilling’s offer? Go look for the sock first as Schilling said he put it in the laundry. Now he suspects a Yankees clubhouse employee still has it.
