The whispers are starting in Boston and Curt doesn't sound very gung ho either

If Schilling is out for a long time the road to the playoffs gets much easier for Chicago

Curt Schilling on with WEEI's Dennis and Callahan: The ankle update

Curt: ďUmm, you know, umm I donít know (little chuckle). I donít know. I met with Dr. Theodore last week before we left and Chris Correnti and I got together and I was told that I had another week in the boot Ďtill the end of the trip. It felt better last week which was an improvement. I feel almost like meaningless one because Iím not out there yet. Iím going to get examined again on Friday and the goal will be to go from there. Iím hoping that weíre near being out of it but thereís a lot of work to be done once I get out of the boot. You think about some of the basic concepts of whatís happening, whatís gonna happen going forward. Iíve had a boot on for the past couple of weeks, so my ankle isnít getting any stronger. It was weak when I hurt it to begin with. So Iím not going back out there until itís strong, if not stronger than it was. How we can do that, and how quickly we can do that is going to be the big question. Thereís some discomfort, but nothing like there was. Iím throwing with my short boot on as best I can to keep the arm as best I can so thereís a lot less lag time between being ready next week and getting out there and pitching.Ē

No offense fenway, but I don't see Boston as a barrier for the Sox making the playoffs.

No offense to the BoSox is right here. They may be an obstacle for the Twinkies in the WC as we will take the Central!:supernana:

no but until you clinch the Central, the second place team in the East you do have to worry about

I ll put it this way, most in Boston are fearful of Chicago and or the Twins

The fate of the Sox are in their own hands. I'm not going to worry about any other team. :cool:

What arrogance! One title and it goes to your heads. Maybe if it was your 26th title, you could get away with that kind of talk, ho ho.

You Bostonians were so much more tolerable when you lost every year, like us. :cool:

Why do I get the feeling that Curt somehow will make a come back with a grand entrance "against all odds" and pitch lights out.

Schilling will walk with one arm over Varitek's shoulder out to the mound and then proceed to throw a 2 hitter with 14 k's.:o:

Just do it against the Twins!!!!

No it is truth

Believe me the Red Sox and Yankees are doing the same math and looking at the Twins and White Sox September schedule and right now I would bet that either New York or Boston does not make it.

There's a possibility that neither will make it if the O's are for real.

If that happens make sure you buy a lot of Eli Lily stock as sales of Prozac will increase in the northeast by 10,000%

Why doesn't Schilling just ask God to fix it like he did last year? Oh, wait, I guess the doctors might have had something to do with it.

ya but the Red Sox fired that doctor :o:

BOSTON --Curt Schilling's protective boot was removed from his injured right ankle Friday, and Boston's team doctor said he was "very encouraged" by the pitcher's progress.

Dr. Thomas Gill didn't put a timetable on when Schilling might pitch again for the Red Sox but said the right-hander has stayed in good condition. He outlined a series of steps for Schilling that include wearing a brace under a normal shoe, throwing from 120 feet, throwing from a mound and pitching in a simulated game.

When asked if he was ruling out the possibility that Schilling would pitch for the Red Sox in May, Gill said, "I'm very honestly not ruling him out for anything. ... It is a day-by-day type of thing."

Schilling was injured April 23 when he bruised a bone in his right ankle while pitching at Tampa Bay. At that time, general manager Theo Epstein said Schilling would wear a removable boot for two weeks.

He had surgery on the same ankle last November after pitching with a different injury to it in the AL championship series and World Series.

"It's tough to be able to say" whether the current injury is related to that, Gill said.

"Curt's actually doing a little bit better," Gill said after examining him before Friday night's game against Atlanta. "His shoulder feels great. You always worry about when someone's been in a boot that it's going to mess up their mechanics a little bit or that could potentially cause some shoulder issues.

"But there's been none of that with him. He's been working extremely hard with his conditioning. He's lost some weight during the program, so he's really staying in great shape."

In three starts this season, Schilling is 1-2 with an 8.15 ERA.

"These are the types of injuries that there's really no specific timetable for," Gill said. "We're basically going to go on his symptoms and how he progresses. Obviously, it's something we want to be very careful about, given the history last year."

It's Curt Schilling. He'll come back, he'll pitch well, and if he gets the ball in October then it's lights-out. There's no changing that. I doubt he'll either a) miss the season or b) pitch terribly. The Os won't last and only one of the ESPN teams will make it in. (NY/Boston)

West: LAA
Central: CWS
