Curt In The Pen

Postby Boston123 » Wed Jul 06, 2005 12:38 pm

Terry Francona was just on WEEI and said Curt Schilling will be pitching out of the bullpen in AAA and probably when he returns to the Red Sox. When asked if he could close, Terry replied 'I didn't say that'.

Could he close? It's possible.

I guess anything is possible, but I just don't see it. I see him back in the rotation by the end of July.

According to the interview with Terry, he volunteered for it. He said for an inning or two, Curt is the best in the game. But right now, he's not sure if he can repeat his delivery for 7 innings.

Curt WILL be in the pen.

Well that's a surprise. But I'm with the skeptics on this, I think it's only a matter of time before he's back in the rotation, sooner rather than later.

Obviously it will be Schilling's call on what he does. He's been injured before and came back so he probably knows best what he can/cannot do.

Would be interesting to see him close. Probably how Smoltz was as a closer.

Yeah, it's being labelled as a temporary move.

They're not paying Curt that kind of money to come out of the pen.

if he does come out of the pen it'll probably only be temporary.
