tonights start may be schillings last of the year, this guy has to be playing in tremendous pain, makes my skin crawl just to think about this

AP Exclusive: Game 2 could be last start for Schilling

By KAREN TESTA, Associated Press Writer
October 24, 2004
BOSTON (AP) -- Curt Schilling might not be able to make a second start in the World Series because the unprecedented surgical procedure to stitch together his injured right ankle might be too damaging to keep repeating.

Team physician Bill Morgan told The Associated Press the team might have to pull the plug on the experiment after Schilling experienced significant discomfort before his start Sunday in Game 2 of the World Series against St. Louis.

His Game 2 start was not in jeopardy, but he might not be able to return for a sixth game, if necessary. Boston led the Cardinals 1-0 in the best-of-seven series after Saturday night's 11-9 victory.


``Honestly, we may not be able to do it a third time,'' Morgan said. ``It depends on what his tissues look like.''

Schilling has a torn tendon sheath in his right ankle that will need surgery after the season. It forced him out of his first start of the AL championship series against the Yankees after just three innings, but the procedure allowed him to pitch well in Game 6 against New York.

The technique involves suturing Schilling's tendon in place so it doesn't flop over his ankle when he pitches. He had the stitches put in on Monday and removed after his start on Tuesday night.

The procedure was repeated Saturday to prepare him for Sunday night. But this time, the stitches caused Schilling much more pain; he has been treated with painkillers and antibiotics to fight infection.

``He's more uncomfortable because it's the second time around,'' Morgan said. ``The line may be drawn there, depending on how he looks over the next five days.

``And he'd respect that if I said, 'Curt, doing this is detrimental.' He'd say, 'All right, we can't do it.' Knowing him, he'd try to push through it with taping again and all that sort of thing.''

Red Sox manager Terry Francona said he thought the problem was solved by removing one of the four sutures.

``The last suture was irritating him a little bit, so they took it out,'' he said before the game. ``Once it was removed, he went from being a little concerned to wanting to see the lineup.''

The bloody sock is now the very symbol of these Red Sox, a rallying cry in the shape of a stitched-up right ankle. Pitching again through so much pain it put his start in doubt, Curt Schilling helped Boston move halfway to snaring its most elusive prize: a first World Series championship since 1918. Backed by another big hit from surprising Mark Bellhorn and unfazed by a defense that still had trouble getting a grip, the Red Sox beat the St. Louis Cardinals 6-2 Sunday night to take a commanding 2-0 lead.

Jason Varitek's rare triple, Orlando Cabrera's single off the Green Monster and a booming double by Game 1 star Bellhorn drove in all of Boston's runs with two outs - enough to offset four errors, including a Series record-tying three by third baseman Bill Mueller.

Pedro Martinez will try to make it a 3-0 lead on Tuesday night when he faces Jeff Suppan in Game 3 at St. Louis. The Cardinals are a perfect 6-0 at Busch Stadium in this postseason, and Suppan outpitched Roger Clemens there in Game 7 of the NLCS.
