The posts have been few and far between on 38Pitches.com during the second half of the season, but Curt Schilling checked in today with a few offday thoughts on the Yankees, the Players Choice Awards, and the sudden lack of details in his postgame updates.

  • The Sox righty writes that he expects "a full out heavyweight brawl" with the Bronx Bombers:

    This is the time of year when you laugh at the people that downplay April wins and overstate September ones. Without playing as well as we did early, and the Yanks struggling early, we dont have anywhere near the cushion we are enjoying right now.

  • The Sox resident blogger shared his selections for the Players Association's Player of the Year awards. Schilling went with Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez as player of the year. No surprise there with the year A-Rod is having. For pitcher of the year, Schill's choice is rotation-mate Josh Beckett, whom he also plugs for Cy Young:

    I am hoping the writers get this one right when the seasons over because from April to today I think hes been the most consistent pitcher in the game.

    Dustin Pedroia for rookie of the year and Carlos Pena for comeback player of the year round out Schilling's selections.

  • On the lack of details and infrequent updates on his blog recently, Schilling offers this explanation:

    I am changing just about everything I do, mentally and physically, to prepare and perform. A lot of it is new to me and a lot of it is and will be things that I am not comfortable putting out there. If I can figure out a way to make that happen then I will definitely do them again, as I have my post game stuff I keep still with me.
