DateQuestionAnswer
2008-02-07 14:00:00 (link to chat)Boston papers reporting Schilling has a serious shoulder injury and might be out for the year. Your thoughts? (Hope this isn't a repeat- my browser crashed)
(jmurph79 from DC)
Lots of questions in this vein. I don't know anything you don't know.

No team in baseball is better prepared for something like this. Buchholz is available, and Julian Tavarez is around for swing/injury work. (Joe Sheehan)
