  • Schilling on DL

    http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/news/story?id=3291118

    ESPN, got it wrong, Schilling never won a CYA, but that's besides the point. He's on the 60 day DL.

    ESPN, just posted the story off the AP Wire but I do wonder who is the knucjlehead who messed up the headline.

    No shocker here. Schilling isn't expected back anytime before the All-Star Break and even then it seems unlikely he will be effective, to me at least.

    The only upside is that he has been out all spring training so the Sox can evaluate their rotation without him.

      Bad news, even though Schilling was a question mark shortly after he signed his contract.

      But nevertheless it is bad news. A team can always use a good arm like his.

          I think this was just a paperwork thing. Everyone knew Schilling wasn't going to pitch until the All-Star break, at the earliest. By putting him on the 60 day DL, they open up a spot on the 40 man roster, which I believe they needed because a pitcher they had lost through the Rule V draft got returned to them (I believe it was Lincoln Holstrom). They needed the spot on the 40 man roster for that pitcher.

            They did sign Holdzkom and place him on the 40-man roster.

                That is the AP headline.

                  Unlikely, seeing as how his doctor recommended that he have season ending surgery. Why would a team want a guy in that condition pitching for them?

                    So they don't feel like they're getting nothing for their money. The Sox really have no motivation to err on the side of caution with Schilling because he's at the end of his career. So to them, they might as well trot him out there and see if he can give anything, rather than have their money go to waste.

                        I totally agree, what good is it if we pay the guy 8-9 million dollars just to have surgery? We got nothing to lose in seeing what Curt can do. If he had the surgery it'd be nothing but wasted money

                          I suppose the Sox could look bad if they pressure Schilling to pitch and he goes out there and does some serious damage to his shoulder. Schilling, being the loudmouth he is, will undoubtedly criticize the Sox for years for making him pitch when his physicians said he didn't have to. But I see this scenario as unlikely,

                            Well Schilling being the guy that he is probably wants to pitch. I don't know if he's gonna pitch or not. I'm just trying to stay optimistic about Curt. Sure he's a loudmouth and he speaks his mind, not trying trying to be a jerk or anything it's just in my opinion that Schill wouldn't criticize the Sox for injuring his arm and I don't think we'd pressure him into pitching. Remember people just an opinion not trying to start a war or make a guy mad.

                              I dunno if ESPN still has it, but the AP headline stated "Schilling on 60 day DL", ESPN printed the incorrect one.
