Red Sox postseason phenom Curt Schilling is irked that he isn't able to follow the advice of his favorite surgeon, Dr. Craig Monroe, and get biceps surgery. However, he vows to go along with Boston's prescription of a cortisone shot, followed by a strengthening and conditioning regimen, reports the Boston Herald.
According to Schilling, Monroe's earlier operations on his arm helped save his career. He seemed less trusting of Boston's doctors: "If their course of action doesn’t work, I don’t pitch this year, and I may never pitch again. I don’t have a choice. I have to mentally get behind it and do everything I can to make it work."
