When Will Schilling Retire?

Postby yankee_cafe » Sun Jun 25, 2006 10:16 am

Or for that matter, RJ, Pedro, Maddux, Glavine, Rocket (again!).

I know this isn't the right forum for trade questions, but I'm thinking about dealing for one of the above in a dynasty league.

I'm curious if anyone has any insight on this ... or just a gut feeling.

There's no mystery. He already said last year is it. He will finish his contract (extended until next year because he won us a WS) and retire a Red Sox.

The only way I can see him coming back is if he has a strong 2007 and the Red Sox resign him to another year midseason.

Thanks for the info ... totally missed the Schilling interview.

What about Pedro? I see him playing another 2-3 seasons?

Pedro still has 2 years on his contract I think.

Why would he come back in the middle of the season? If Clemens hadn't done that you would never say such a thing. Clemens was a unique situation, that will likely not occur with other people. He will either sign in the offseason for a year or not.

He's talking about a contract extension. It has nothing to do with what Clemens did.

He's likely done after 2007 but the way he's pitching now, I'd say he could go to 2008, maybe 2009.

Not bad for an old guy many wrote off after last year }:-)
