    This will not end quietly.

    It was apparently a joke by Mirabelli, taken too seriously by Thorne. Who would be foolish enough to paint a bloody sock? The truth would have leaked by now anyway.

    I'd just like to put give Mirabelli and Schilling lie-detector tests. Thorne's a solid guy and I can't think of a reason why he'd make that up. Perhaps Mirabelli said it, but was kidding?

    Then why did Mirabelli not admit that he was joking about this. Or has he?

    He denied he said this at all and according to the quote, is very pissed about his name being used with such a bold statement. I'm just guessing he cracked a joke a few years back and doesn't even remember.

    If it was paint on the sock, we'd have found out before 2007. Shaungnessy would have been licking his chops, eager to expose Schilling and get some pub.

    Until either Thorne says Mirabelli might have been joking OR Mirabelli admits he said it but adds that he was joking OR somebody admits that it was paint, there will be questions.

    I believe Gary Thorne, and his bullshit detector.

    Sometimes our willingness to back other members of the media on this site no matter what amazes me.

    Thanks for the impartial fanboy response.


    Isn't the sock in Cooperstown? If so, could it come to a head where they actually test the thing? Hell, we could send David Caruso up there.

    So, is that your way of saying Thorne made it up?

    Gary Thorne is a lawyer most definitely NOT with a proclivity for on-air bombast. I have been listening to the guy regularly for almost 25 years.

    If he said it, Mirabelli said it.

    Mirabelli MAY have been joking.

    But there is no way "he didn't say it."
