Sox confirm Schilling surgery, will discuss this p.m.

Curt Schilling, who in his customary way chose to announce his season-ending surgery on WEEI radio this morning, will not be at the ballpark this afternoon, according to the club, but Sox GM Theo Epstein and manager Terry Francona intend to discuss this latest development before the Sox-Cardinals game tonight. Schilling’s announcement comes a week after he last threw a side session for the team–that “plateau” Francona referred to evidently is an abyss, one that may likely signal the end of Schilling’s career.
