Thanks to Boston Dirt Dogs for the transcript:

5.10.05 -- Curt Schilling on with WEEI's Dennis and Callahan: Is the ankle getting better? Curt: "I don't know, I really don't. It's... I have the boot on and the etiquette handed down was to wear the boot around the clock and for an extended period of time and check it every so often and go from there. Is it on like 23 hours a day? Pretty much. Pretty much. I'm gonna keep it on here until the end of the homestand and get it checked here at the end of the homestand and go from there. Does that mean you get out of shape again? Cause I know the hardest thing over the winter was staying in shape Yeah, um I am actually doing two a day right now. Keeping the boot on riding the bike or swimming. Working with Chris Correnti, when I get into the park and later again in the afternoon to kind of speed up the work that I wasn't able to do before. Just trying to make sure that, when we met the other day, one thing I said was that I want to be on the mound the minute I can be but the way it's going now, it might be quicker for me to come back as a middle reliever."

On travelling with the team: "When I get away from the game, that energy that you get from the ballpark you start to lose. And you lose it fast. And getting back into the swing of things takes a long period of time for me. And I don't want to have to do that to get back on the mound. It looks to me now like Wellsey's doing well and he was working while we were gone. He's probably going to be back before me." So you don't think he (Wells) belonged there with you on the bench? No. No, no, no, no, no, no this is an individual thing. He had things set up with one of the therapists here to do his rehab and his work and my concern again was just mentally being kind of still in the thing while I'm not pitching, and that's a priority for me."

Yikes. :-o Glad I wasn't successful in landing him in any of my attempts to buy low. Thanks for the link, though. ;-D

Well, unfortunately, I acquired him last week, but I think I bought low enough (Pettitte + D.Young) that I won't be terribly upset if doesn't come back for a while.

God. Trading for Schilling and Bonds in mid March right after the draft has pretty much destroyed any chance of me winning. I'm hanging around 3rd place, but that won't last for long as some of my players are playing above their heads.... :,-(

Yeah, I hate it when star players give interviews and openly disclose information about their rehab. It's a big pet peeve of mine, too.

Yea...he'd probably talk for HOURS about himself to anybody (and i mean anybody) who would listen.

But...his wife is a hotty so you gotta give him props for that.

For Schilling owners, this is from today. It was previously thought that the boot would come off this week, but oh well.

http://www.boston.com/dailynews/131/sports/Wells_to_test_foot_on_Friday_:.shtml

Schilling, who is on the disabled list with a bone bruise in his right ankle, also met with doctors on Wednesday. They decided to keep the boot on.

''He's progressing,'' Francona said. ''He's still going to stay in that boot. He'll be evaluated when we get back.''

Francona said Schilling is miserable because he is on the sidelines.

''He takes what he does very seriously,'' Francona said. ''He feels an obligation to anchor the staff. Because of that, we have an obligation to make sure he doesn't hurt himself. Because he'd go out and pitch, I guarantee you.''
