When anybody sees a pitcher bleeding on the mound in a postseason game, it’s inevitable Curt Schilling will be referenced.
It was Schilling, after all, who experienced the most notable in-game injury of any pitcher in the playoffs, bleeding through his sock during the 2004 American League Championship Series against the Yankees.
So when Cleveland starter Trevor Bauer started bleeding profusely from his right hand due to an injury sustained while toying around with a drone, social media started bombarding Schilling.

But with Bauer having to been removed after just 2/3 innings, putting his team in a tough spot, the former Red Sox pitcher didn’t have any use for the two to be lumped together.
Please don't tweet at me about Bauer.He cost himself a start, likely more, AND his teammates, and fans, dicking around with a drone. #stupid
