UPDATE #1: Curt got around to updating his blog to give his side of the story. Love 'em or hate 'em, at least give the guy credit for opening himself up to the masses. Most athletes hide behind their agents and handlers, but Curt puts himself out there. We can agree that it might be self-serving, but we also have to appreciate his efforts.
In quickly scanning the comments at the bottom of the posting, most are overly dramatic (no surprise there, folks) or dripping with religious prayers and messages. No problem with people praying for whatever, but it just seems, I dunno, silly, to pray for a guy to heal to throw a ball for $8M a year. If there's someone listening to prayers, I hope he/she picks something better to act upon (like me winning MegaMillions). One comment ended this way: "May science be with you". Nicely done, son.
Breaking news: Schilling's got a potentially season-ending shoulder injury. Further complicating things is the fact that the Sox have inquired whether or not they can void his $8M contract.
Guessing this won't make the blogger too happy. Though, if you read the comments from that article, seems that the RSN would be happy to see him go, which I found surprising.
I wonder if the Sox would have been more aggressive with Johan had they known this a week and a half ago. We can only wonder.
