It's a rare thing to hear Curt Schilling say he's speechless, but that's the word the veteran used to describe his reaction to Josh Beckett's postgame comments Thursday.

"I guess I'm speechless after all of it, given every thing that has happened, given how last year ended, given all the things going on this year," Schilling on the Adam Jones Show on ESPN Radio.

According to Schilling, it is common practice for healthy pitchers to golf on their off days, but not after being scratched from a start.

"When I was healthy and I was playing in Arizona, Randy Johnson and I golfed every day we didn't pitch," said Schilling. "It was a way for me to keep myself healthy. It was the best thing I could possibly do the day after I pitched to keep my body loose and my arms and my back stretched. But with a physical ailment you never step on the course.

"You get paid a lot of money to throw a baseball and win baseball games, and that always has to be the focus."
