***BREAKING RED SOX NEWS.....Curt Schilling Sent Back To Boston For MRI***

From the Boston Globe, news of ailing Curt Schilling..........

"Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling left the team and went back to Boston today to meet with Red Sox team doctor Thomas Gill and have a precautionary MRI on his shoulder.
According to multiple reports, the Sox will be looking at his right (pitching) shoulder.
A Red Sox official told us there were concerns over the lack of velocity in Schilling's performance last night. According to the NESN radar gun, Schilling never hit 90 mph over his 81 pitches last night.
The Red Sox confirmed that he would be undergoing a precautionary MRI and there was no word yet on whether or not he would miss his next start, scheduled for Sunday against Jake Peavy and the San Diego Padres."

Peter here...oh boy! Will this mean that Jon Lester's call-up to the big leagues is that much closer?? I have to think so. Be well, Curt. I knew from pitch number ten that all was not right last night. WE ALL DID.

I'm Not in the lest bit surprised, Peter:

He looked like a tired old man;

As does Glavine;

As does any 40+ pitcher;

Koufax retired at 31;

Seaver broke down at 41;

Roger The Faker is showing his age
