Gary Thorne is the man who reported this.

Call me crazy, but of all broadcasters out there, I'd believe Gary Thorne since he just seems like the type of guy to con someone with that powerful voice.

That's what I was saying at first, it doesn't really matter. But if it is a hoax then it would say a lot about Schilling's character, and how little things like that can decide so much in sports. Then again, a bloody sock couldn't have decide that series.

Well its in the HOF isnt it? If so just check it there. Blood turns a brownish color after its dried. If its red than its paint, if its brown its blood.

......... Unless they washed the sock before putting it in the hall.........

Well, it's not like Thorne just up and said he thought the Red Sox were lieing about it.

He claims to have been told by Doug Mirabelli, Schilling's teammate, that this was the case.

Mirabelli of course heavily denied it saying that.

So maybe Thorne is making this up, but he didn't do so without saying he had a source.

I don't know. I don't care all that much. I don't really like Schilling, but I won't just assume it was paint either.

And yes, you bleed after surgery, but usually they're are bandages and whatnot to stop the bleeding before you play.

There may not have been in Schilling's case, but there aren't exactly a lot of other examples for you to show of a guy bleeding from surgery during a game.

This just in....

Gary Thorne is also reporting that Babe Ruth personally told him that Lou Gehrig was faking....

And....

Gary Thorne is also reporting that Doc Gooden, while trying to get a fix, let him know that the ball never really went through Buckner's legs...It was all an optical ellusion!

I'm not a huge Gary Thorne fan, but all I've heard about him personally have been good things, and even professionally, it's not his style to call people out and stir up contreversy.

Maybe this is out of character. Or maybe he's right.

Seriously. I hate that guy. He should make a thread apologizing for making us all hate him so much.

Hoax or not who the :censored: really cares. The guy was OBVIOUSLY injured because we all saw him in a cast and we all saw him stink in 2005 which is completely out of character. And like BostonFan said, the bottom line is that it is two years later and it wouldn't matter no matter which way you spin this.

P.S. I highly doubt it was a 'hoax considering the nature of such a "patchwork" procedure. This guy practically had his ankle sticking out of his leg. Give me a break.

Knowing Thorne's ability, though, he probably pronounced his name Shy-ling. :D

I don't think anyone is denying that he played hurt. What is being questioned is whether or not the thing that turned into a symbol for the team was fraudulent. That and the inspiration it provided. Oh well...

(Still wonders how the World Series would have gone if the team with the best record got to host Game 1....)

Yeah, the All-Star Game thing is bogus, if the home game was in Busch it could of been a whole different series, but no use staying in the past, we got ours.
