Red Sox - DLed Schilling
Boston Red Sox - Are about to place P Curt Schilling on the 15-day DL.
I appreciate the argument that Pedro is a little risky because of his health, but it’s hard to use that argument when 3/5ths of your rotation is pushing 40, one of whom has an iffy injury record over his career and one other’s idea of conditioning is drinking light beer before getting into a bar brawl, that’s a pretty loose thread.
This has to be troublesome for the Red Sox, who are, like the Yankees, not very well prepared for bad things to happen to their rotation. The Sox have gone from the point when getting an iffy Wade Miller back was a sweet bonus to actually needing him to be healthy. John Halama’s already stuck in the rotation for the time being and not having Miller means either having to use Lenny Dinardo as a starter or purchasing the contracts of Timmy Kester or Jeremi Gonzalez, none of which are particularly appealing prospects.
Amazingly, the Orioles, who never plan for anything, are in a better shape to handle injuries than either the Red Sox or the Yankees. Both Rick Bauer or John Parrish can start in emergencies or John Maine can be pushed a bit; none of these players are great, but it beats what the Sox and Yanks will have to do if their rotations continue to fall apart.
