Indians starter Trevor Bauer‘s stitched-up pinky began bleeding profusely in the first inning of ALCS Game 3 on Monday evening, forcing him out of the game much earlier than anticipated.

Schilling, however, urged his Twitter followers not to make such a comparison. He wrote, “Please don’t tweet at me about Bauer. He cost himself a start, likely more, AND his teammates, and fans, [messing] around with a drone. #stupid”
