FORT MYERS, Fla. (AP) -- The doctor who claims he knows Curt
Schilling's shoulder "better than anybody who breathes on this
planet" insists surgery is the only way the 20-year veteran can
pitch again.
But Boston's team physician disagrees. He believes
rehabilitation is the best way for Schilling to play this year.
Caught in the middle are Schilling and his 8-million-dollar
contract.
Doctor Craig Morgan operated on Schilling's right shoulder in
1995 and 1999. He tells The Associated Press that Schilling's
chance of coming back to pitching with rehab or a conservative
approach is "zero." Morgan says if the surgery is successful,
Schilling should be fully rehabbed by about All-Star break."
The assessment comes a day after Schilling wrote on his blog
that he has agreed to the club's request to rely on rest and
rehabilitation. 1/4
