It's kind of crashing down around them. Somebody asked me last night about them making the playoffs and I said, "You know how I feel about these guys, you know how I feel about Terry ... I don't want them to make the playoffs because I don't think they have a chance to go anywhere." I don't think they're going to make it. I don't know that they have the horses. I hope they do, I want them to, but I think there's been a huge momentum shift and I can see Tampa winning out.So it's better to miss the post-season entirely than be one of the eight playoff teams and take your chances?
Beyond pointing out that he says "I don't want them to make the playoffs" and then 10 seconds later says "I want them to" make the playoffs, I'll limit my comments to this: Schilling has changed quite a bit since his "Why Not Us?" days.

I don't give a shit.
