"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."
Peter here...does this bad news open the door for Clay Buchholz? (YES!!) Maybe it's a blessing in disguise? (NO!) I have no idea. But I think...I think..I think I shouldn't think! But I'm good at it. That sad news was from Boston dot com...and I wish I could share happier news. Is this a blessing?? NO, NO...I thought Schill was going to have a great 2008. Call me speechless, because I am. For once. Our rotation, sans Johan Santana and Curt Schilling, will be Josh Beckett, Daisuke Matsuzaka, Jon Lester, Tim Wakefield and Clay Buchholz. Good enough? We'll see.
