Schilling won't be ready for opening day

Postby Transmogrifier » Tue Dec 14, 2004 10:55 am

When it rains, it pours. (But, the Sox are World Champions!!!!!!)


Curt Schilling on WEEI with Dennis & Callahan

Gerry Callahan: Will you be ready to report on-time and be ready for spring training?

Curt Schilling: Things are going well, but no I don’t think so. I’m gonna be late, I think, starting the season. I just moved into a boot this past weekend and I was told in the last 10 days, unbeknownst to me up to this point, that I will not be allowed to rotate my ankle in and out for another 4-5 weeks. I’m not really sure what the date is, I think today’s right around the 15th, but that’s the day I start throwing, which I cannot do. So I’m looking at least another month, before I start throwing, which puts me a month behind.

GC: You said season, you mean opening day season?

CS: Yeah, I think so. I don’t think so (be ready to start opening day). Lots can change once it comes out of a cast and I get going and I know I’ve been a quick healer, but as of right now the timetable looks something later than opening day.
I'm back. Sorta.

Not to be a conspiracy theorist or anything, but Dr. Morgan, the guy that did the radical procedure on Schill this year was fired a few weeks ago.

thanks for the update. The thing I like about Schilling is he's not afraid to admit that he'll be out longer. I'd still probably draft him pretty high but just not AS high

Well I think it would be a full blown conspiracy if the Yankees turn around and hire the doctor

Now that would be crazy.

I don't know what this does to Schill's value. I got Prior last year in the second round because he was hurt. I'd be wary.

It all depends on how many starts they say he'll miss, which is still too far away to know right now. But if the healing doesn't progress into ST, he would probably only fall into the 30's. He's too good to not take a chance on by then.

Thanks for the update. I never draft pitchers in the 1st few rounds anyway so that shouldnt affect me as he will be long gone before I take a pitcher.

I heard the Schilling interview this morning, and the sense I got is that he will be several weeks behind when training camp opens. If that gap remains, then he'll miss most of April, probably.

From a fantasy perspective, it probably does drop him down a bit on the depth chart.

In the real world, if you said I could have it one of two ways:

Either Curt starts ALCS Game Six vs New York & World Series Game Two vs St. Louis -- and misses a handful of starts in April 05...

OR

Misses the '04 post season but is ready for '05 Opening Day,

I'll choose the former every time. ;-D
