Herald: Sox Players Unhappy with New Team Doctor
Sox Players Want a Second Opinion
"According to clubhouse sources, Sox ace Curt Schilling visited with team owner John Henry recently to express clubhouse dissatisfaction with the team's new medical staff. ...Privately, at least, players have expressed some frustration about daily accessibility to Gill and about a lack of communication. One clubhouse source said players were amused when Schilling was given the broad range of 2-12 weeks for recovery from his latest ankle ailment, calling the assessment a ``cover your (butt)'' diagnosis." -- 5.26.05 Boston Herald, Tony Massarotti
Schilling Return May be Distant
"According to sources, Schilling was told roughly a month ago that he could need up to 12 weeks to recover from an ankle ailment that forced him to the disabled list on April 29. Based on that time frame, Schilling could be out until the middle or end of July." -- 5.26.05 Boston Herald, Tony Massarotti
