Schilling to get surgery

And that’s that.

There will be no post-season heroics this year. No shot at salvaging a lost season.

Just lots and lots of time to call into WEEI, blog, and develop video games.

Weird that he was just throwing off a mound less than 10 days ago, but I guess the guy’s in pain, and there’s no use chasing after something he knows isn’t gonna happen.

Can’t say I’m too surprised.

Am I disappointed? Can’t really say that either.

Luckily our general manager has seen to it that we’re well-stocked with live arms. If Masterson can keep pitching like he has, and if Colon returns from the DL with anything close to what he’s shown so far — and is smart enough to stop swinging for the fences, should we make it to the next round of interleague play in October — we’ll be fine.

But we could be seeing the end of a brilliant career here. And that’s a little sad, no matter how you slice it. Luckily, the guy seems to be taking it in stride.

The game was here for well over a hundred years before I came along, and will be for that and more after I am gone, it owes Curt Schilling absolutely nothing, it gave me far more than I ever gave it.

Good luck, Gehrig38. And thanks for what you’ve given us.
