Schilling might, MIGHT, not be back in 2007

Postby thedude » Wed Sep 27, 2006 10:27 am

BOSTON -- Curt Schilling pulled the plug on the 2006 season Tuesday night and then let slip one little word of doubt about whether he'll be back for '07.

"If I come back next year, I know that the offseason will be the hardest of my career," he said.

Wait a minute. Did he just say if?

"Well, going into next year," he backtracked.

Schilling is due $13 million on the contract extension he signed when he waived his no-trade clause to come to Boston on Thanksgiving weekend of 2003. The money was an option that vested when the Red Sox won the 2004 World Series, thanks in no small part to Schilling.

But he turns 40 in November and he lost most of 2005 to the ankle injury that sent his bloody sock to the Hall of Fame. Although he pitched 204 innings this season, it took him eight weeks to win his 15th game.

He will probably be back, but this is not the normal Curt Schilling type talk.

Curt Schilling turn down 13M?...yeah ok.

I hear ARod will send George a check for 20 milion if he flops in the post-season again because he does not want to accept money he has not earned too. And he is going to let the Yankee fans decide the issue for him.

And Sheff will forego free agency if the option is not picked up and sign for whatever Cashman thinks is reasonable.

And Barry Zito is going to tell Boras that he will re-sign with Oakland for far less than market value because the money does not mean too much to him and he loves the A's so much.

Let's hope he doesn't come back. Or at least goes somewhere in the NL.

Only 2 people said they didn't like Schil in this thread and 1 is a Yankees fan so obviously his opinion is forfeited.
