Curt Schilling announced today that he needs shoulder surgery which will end his season. Making his announcement on Boston’s WEEI, the right-hander speculated he has likely thrown his last pitch. At this point, rightly so, his sole focus is on eliminating the pain in his shoulder.
This is quite a loss for the Red Sox and the MLB. Even though he hasn’t thrown yet this season, his post-season record is impressive. He played key roles in both the 2004 and 2007 World Series victories.
