Do the great people of Boston really deserve this?

The Boston Herald reports that Curt Schilling may need surgery for what's likely either a rotator cuff or labrum injury. This could be it for him.

Rotoworld says Boston may look at Kyle Lohse, Bartolo Colon or Freddy Garcia

I'm guessing Twins GM Bill Smith is under a suicide watch right now. Had he held out a week longer, it is very possible that he would have gotten the package he wanted from the Red Sox.

This isn't good news but the Red Sox do have the luxury of having Buchholz and Lester to plug in to the rotation.

Just have that same doctor that did his ankle suture in the playoffs perform surgery on his shoulder and put him on the mound.

Boston will have a new "holy relic" to worship. Maybe the "Bloody undershirt" can go on a tour of New England alongside the "Bloody sock".

He's getting up there, wouldn't surprise me if he wants to wait till June/July to start his season...

That's a pretty solid blow. Even though they have some highly touted kids, that's a far cry from having them AND a solid vet.

Also interesting that they're looking into voiding the deal. Unless they did it without a physical - that's on them. And if they did it without a physical it's still on them. Classy move for that first class org.

Just wait 'til the Saux have to pay the other $3 mil for the "weight clause" in Schilling's contract.

I wonder if this will hinder him getting one Cy Young vote.

Maybe he'll go to Austria to have a new revolutionary surgical technique performed.

How about Theo? I knew the Red Sox would end up regretting not giving up Lester, just didn't think it would come so early. Now they just have to wait for Beckett to have his annual problems, and they'll really be wishing they would have given up Lester.

Exactly. I don't see why the Red Sox were so damn stingy about giving up Lester and Ellsbury. Sure, they're young and they're cheap, but Lester and Ellsbury are still unproven. If all you have to do is give up those two for the best pitcher in baseball, why not do it if you're the Red Sox? Besides, it isn't like they'll be crippled without those two. They have the money to sign anybody they want anyway.

I never cheer injuries - but this one couldn't happen to a more arrogant smug prick.

I said it last week after the Superbowl, I think the Red Sox will fall short as well, their rotation looks nice when everything goes as plan, but they also have a combination of the potential for injury prone, old, and mediocre. Plus, you never know how a young player will respond, especially after everyone knows about, for the "super prospects" (I have this feeling people will be ripping Theo for not being able to get Santana, even if it was more of the Twin's decision)

this has not been a good week


Even without surgery, the 41-year-old Schilling is not expected to be ready to pitch until at least the All-Star break, according to several sources familiar with his condition.
