After Curt Schilling's last ineffective start, in which his fastball mostly stayed in the high 80's, the Red Sox sent him back to Boston to be examined. Fortunately, an MRI showed no structural damage. Schill said today on WEEI that he thought it might be a bit of tendinitis. He's going to be on the 15-day DL, but hopefully a bit of rest will enable him to be more Schill-like on a consistent basis.

Now, I'm not happy at all that Curt is hurt, but his injury sets up one of the great pitching matchups of the season on Sunday. Josh Beckett will move into Schilling's spot and will pitch against Padres ace Jake Peavy Sunday at Petco Park. Make sure you are in front of a TV somewhere at 4:05.
