How will Curt Schilling fare when he gets back? What number do you expect out of him?

Well, as many here know, Schilling is shooting to return just before the AS Break. How well he performs all depends on how how much stamina he's built up in his arm. Schilling also mentioned a few weeks ago that he might have to rely on a high 80's fastball for the rest of the season instead of his usually low-mid 90's heater. That would certaintly cut down on his strikeouts. However, the latest reports coming in have made it sound as if Schilling's ankle is quite healthy and his very enthusiastic about getting back on the field.

I would expect Schilling to throw 120 innings with a 3.50 or so E.R.A., 1.20 WHIP and 8-10 wins the rest of the way. I'd expect his K rate to fall slightly, taking into consideration his age and injury, and a slight loss of velocity off his fastball.

Any other predictions?

I think your are high on both his IP and WHIP. I think he'll be closer to 100 IP and 1.10 WHIP, but all-in-all a pretty fair assessment.

I also wonder if his personal assessment of his fastball being only in the high 80's is just too play with the opposing hitters' heads. Just something to think about.
