Schilling on his Triple A start today:
working on: "No, not one thing. Just trying to get better."
Velocity: "Real good. Felt like it's where it should be. Still overthrowing the ball in certain situations I shouldn't be."
Everything feels good."
Stamina: "I felt very very strong at the end of the game. That's one thing I'm very very excited about. That certainly wasn't my limit."
This strong last year: "No, this is no comparison to anything last year. Stuff, everything ... I'm ready. I feel like I"m ready already, from a stamina standpoint. Stuffwise, if my next start were opening day, I'd feel very comfortable with where I'm at."
On watching Foulke: "He was phenomenal. That's as good as I've seen I'm look since October of 2004. That's exciting. it's very exciting to see that."
On whether he's concerned about the ankle holding up for a full season: "No, no ... I don't think about it. A little stiffer some mornings but it doesn't have anything to do with how I feel or how I pitch or how I feel when i pitch. It's not an issue."
On the Yankees staff vs. the Sox staff: "We're five deep, six deep as a rotation. Bullpenwise we're going to have some guys who aren't going to make this bullpen who probably could be in the big leagues with anybody else. It's gong to come down to health again, as it always does. I think the rotation and the staff that stays off the DL the most in the AL East is going to be playing in October."
