I Don't See Any Bloody Sleeve; Schilling Is A Wimp

Curt Schilling is set to undergo season-ending shoulder surgery.

"My season is over and there is a pretty decent chance I have thrown my last pitch forever," he said.

Schilling's physician, Dr. Craig Morgan, confirmed to The Associated Press the surgery will be done Monday in Wilmington, Del.

"If you use a scale of 1 to 10 and 10 is pitching in the big leagues, I'm at about 3 right now," Schilling said.

He added: "I'm going in to make it not hurt anymore."

Spare me the violins, Curt. So sorry that you aren't even at "4" on your scale. We've got Tiger Woods winning a major with a leg broken in two places, Kobe Bryant playing a half a season with a detached finger, and you're hanging it up since you're a little achy? Waah.

Here's a coupon to some Nexcare bandages.
