    Comments are not a hit with Kazmir

    Good for Kazmir. Looks like he did some homework and Schilling just threw out some bullcrap hoping no one would look it up.

    RED SOX NOTEBOOK
    Comments are not a hit with Kazmir

    By Nick Cafardo, Globe Staff | April 20, 2006

    Tampa Bay lefthander Scott Kazmir didn't care for comments Curt Schilling made this week on WEEI radio, when Boston's ace said the reason the Red Sox and Devil Rays have had numerous bench-clearing incidents is because of Kazmir ''hitting multiple batters every time he threw against us. I don't know if any of it was intentional, but he kept hitting players."

    Kazmir, who will pitch the series finale tonight against Tim Wakefield, responded to Schilling's comments in today's St. Petersburg Times.

    ''I don't know why he would say that," said Kazmir. ''I never tried to hit anyone ever.

    ''What can you do? Why would I, of all people, get thrown into everything? I was looking at a video before of past things with the Red Sox and Devil Rays and they had all this other stuff before I was even in pro ball. And all of a sudden it's all because of me? OK.

    ''It was very surprising to hear that."

    Schilling, who improved to 4-0 with last night's 9-1 win over the Devil Rays, went on to say in the radio interview, ''We made it clear to them, for the most part, that we were only throwing at guys on their team because their young pitchers couldn't throw inside. Obviously, he's getting better and he's learning. But you don't learn to pitch in the big leagues inside, you learn how to do that in the minor leagues. And you can't do that here because you get people hurt."

    Kazmir responded, ''So, I guess I don't know how to pitch inside if I hit a guy or two? It doesn't make too much sense. It's his opinion. He wants to be heard."

    Kazmir is 1-1 with a 4.82 ERA this season. In seven career starts against the Red Sox, he's 2-1 (with both wins coming at Fenway) and has allowed only 12 earned runs and 29 hits in 38 2/3 innings (a 2.79 ERA) while striking out 36.

    Or perhaps Schill was trying to get into the kids head?

    Apparently people in the minors don't get hurt when they get hit...
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    If they didnt use the DH, Kazmir could plunk Schilling.

    I hope everyone of their batters feels like they're facing Pedro when he is "pitching inside" to Jose Guillen...I hate, correction HATE the BoSox...Carlton Fisk should have kept his hands in his pockets.

    If Schilling got hit by a pitch, his reaction would look like a death scene from a dinner theater production of Hamlet.

    Schilling is a fabulous player. Included with his onfield abilities is his ability to screw with heads of his opponents. He's a joy to watch.

    If I remember correctly, Schilling was on the top list of most hated people in sports. Stuff like this is probably why.

    I am suprised with Schilling having to invent this to get attention these days , I figured with his hot start the man love in Boston would be overwhelming. He must of felt neglected so he conjured this crap up.
