Curt Schilling, fresh off signing an incentive-laden, one-year $8M deal with the Red Sox, apparently is now hurt.
Nick Cafardo and Gordon Edes of the BOSTON GLOBE report today “Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling is not expected to be ready for the start of spring training because of shoulder issues, much like the ones that caused the club to shut him down for seven weeks last season, according to sources. His availability for Opening Day could also be in question.“
The last few weeks we heard a lot about how the Red Sox weren’t looking to trade for Santana because their rotation was already so strong. Based on the crap the Mets gave up to get Santana, the Bosox now may be wishing they made a more serious run at the lefthander.
Schilling has nothing about the shoulder problem on his blog today. Instead, he posted about Mitt Romney’s problem.
UPDATE: The BOSTON HERALD is now reporting that those farewell letters may have been prophetic.
