it seems he is tipping his pitches?

Word is Curt Schilling is tipping his pitches. That may explain why he's been rocked in his last four outings. Schilling will have to disguise his pitches better today when the D-Backs hope to square up their NLDS series with the Cardinals

Schilling has had instances where he'll actually say what pitch he's throwing as he's getting the signs. They've shown replays in the past of him clearly saying "fastball".

If that ain't tipping, I don't know what is.

People seem to love to make excuses for him. He even said it himself. "I'm not tipping, just sucking." Or something like that. If Chuck Finley does poorly, I think I'll blame it on the new E! True Hollywood Story about Tawny.

I saw that on ESPN. I think he does it without even thinking about it and the batter is standing there reading his lips. Might as well have Crash behind the plate saying 'Fastball.'

Paraphrased from Crash Davis, "Here come the duece. And when you think of me, think well."

If you're Mariano Rivera, who only throws one pitch, really not much of a problem.

I would if I were you. Heck, if I were the D-Backs, the logo for the day would be:



Yikes...
