Doc Thinks Curt Could Pitch for New York Next Year...
Dr. Craig Morgan Made More Remarkable Remarks on the Radio
4.15.08, Dr. Craig Morgan on WEEI's Dennis and Callahan: "He (Schilling) called me when he was angry about a month ago and was having recurrent pain, and said 'Listen, I want to pitch again next year,' and the possibility of the New York (Yankees) option, he would consider. He didn't say he was going to do it, he didn't do any of that. I think it was in part of anger... Oh that's definitely possible. He told me, despite this thing, he doesn't think he's done and he wants to pitch next year. And if you read between the lines, that's (pitching for the Yankees) definitely a possibility. I don't think he's going to pitch for Royals next year, if he pitches at all,""
4.14.08, Dr. Craig Morgan on ESPN radio in Philadelphia: "It's my opinion that he's (Schilling) angry enough that it's entirely conceivable, even though he's 40 years old, it's entirely conceivable that he will have the operation, rehab, and pitch for the Yankees next year."
But Schill Still Says No Pinstripes for Him...
4.15.08, Curt Schilling WEEI's Dennis and Callahan: ďThe first word that popped into my head, is a word that I think is new to the English language, but everybody understands what it means is Ďmisrember,í Schilling said. ďI talked to doc probably within the last week. Heís called me a couple of times during my rehab, but Iím not really sure how he got to some of the conclusions he got to. But I think you guys know me well enough to know that me wearing pinstripes, regardless of what point of the season or my career it would have been, is not an option. I canít remember how or think back to having that conversation specifically orÖ itís not an option. Never has been an option. And Iím not really sure where heís drawn from a conversation standpoint, but from a rehab standpoint, Iím probably as surprised as anyone how well itís gone and where Iím at.Ē
2007 archives, Curt Schilling on the possibility of finishing his career as a Yankee: "It wouldn't be in New York. No. I could not make that move." | ďThatís not a place I think I could finish my career after whatís happened here." | "When it ended and Boston had become the new team, in my mind, growing up a baseball fan, I had made a choice there was no going back on. I liken it to the Hatfields and the McCoys, once you pick a family, you are in, for life."
