Official Schilling Memorial Spring-Training Game Thread: Sox-Yankees

New, comments

[Now with 200% more references with Curt Schilling!]

It's Wakefield vs. A.J. Burnett in one of the few remaining televised Spring Training games. Going against the Yankees, expect Wake's outing to be even shorter than Curt's abortive closer career. Nevertheless, expect the Sox to valiantly contest the game, like Schilling on the mound with blood spurting out of his leg. And don't forget to tune in later for our post-game to follow our continuing story - will Curt hang up the foot that has so famously hung in his mouth all these years?
