Schilling may be done

Postby nsulham » Thu Feb 07, 2008 2:43 pm

From Rotoworld:

Curt Schilling is not expected to be ready for the start of spring training because of shoulder issues.
Schilling hasn't commented at all about this on his blog, but now that the news is out, he probably will soon. Schilling recently went to see Dr. Craig Morgan, the doctor who performed his shoulder surgery in 1995. His condition may be similar to the one that shut him down for seven weeks last year. The Red Sox are well equipped to deal with one pitching injury at a time this year, as they can just slide Clay Buchholz into the rotation and maybe be better off for it. If they're truly worried about Schilling, they may reconsider giving Julian Tavarez away.


The Boston Herald reports that Curt Schilling may need surgery for what's likely either a rotator cuff or labrum injury.
Schilling is done after this year, so we don't see why he'd undergo surgery. Unless he's reconsidering and wants to extend his career beyond 2008, then he'll have to try to pitch through the problem. According to the Herald, the Red Sox are already exploring the possibility of voiding Schilling's contract. They could decide to make a run at Kyle Lohse or take a flier on Bartolo Colon or Freddy Garcia if they don't think Schilling will make it back.


Bump Buchholz up a bit in your rankings as it looks like he'll start the season with the big team and might be up for good.

I'm not sure if I'm happy or sad.

Happy because Schilling won't pitch anymore and therefore ESPN won't show me constant coverage of his bowel movements.

Sad because he'll probably join ESPN as a baseball commentator and we'll have to hear him talk

Most Patriots fans disappeared from the forum except for bigken so there is definitely more harmony.
