The latest from Schilling

This from Yahoo/Fanball:
May 26 According to sources, Schilling was told roughly a month ago that he could need up to 12 weeks to recover from an ankle injury, putting his return somewhere around the All-Star break, the Boston Herald reports.

Recommendation: Sources also indicate the Red Sox medical staff initially told the pitcher and team management that Schilling's ailment could sideline him anywhere from 2-12 weeks. The club was optimistic that Schilling's recovery time would lean toward the minimum, but it is becoming increasingly apparent that the pitcher's rehab will lean toward the maximum.


Well, all of us fantasy baseball managers who traded for Schilling this season can thank the Red Sox organization for keeping this quiet. I guess we won't expect to see Schilling until mid-July. Kudos to all the posters here at the Cafe who recommended caution when dealing for Schilling. ;-D It's just too bad for me that I wasn't around to see it when I traded for him.

"listen to your friend billy zane, he's a cool dude."

as a matter of policy i generally shy away from trading for people on the DL unless its a ridiculously discounted price.

since i have schil in h2h leagues i can live with drafting him if he is solid for the second half.

It's a walk-off!


I wonder if Schilling is an ambi-turner? :-b

Probably not with that boot on...

Bad news for the B-Sox about his delayed recovery. It sucks as a Boston fan that Schillz is losing his competitive edge and, as one poster pointed out, developing large man-bosoms :-D

But as a non-Schilling owner... ;-7

Though I don't dispute that the Red Sox were told that the injury could take up to 12 weeks to recover from, that it actually will take 12 weeks is pure speculation on the part of the Boston Herald and Tony Massarotti (who wrote the article and is someone I don't have much faith in at all).

Great point Wozzyck. ;-D ;-D Let's hope you're right and Schilling returns before the All Star break.
