What are the chances that Schilling comes back next year?

Postby Music2004Man » Thu Nov 02, 2006 11:52 pm

At the end of the year Schilling mentioned that he might retire. Does anyone think this is actually going to be true or do you think there's a good chance he comes back to play next year?

He's coming back; gotta keep up with the Joneses (or Clemenses).

I would be very surprized if he doesn't comeback. He backtracked on that statement pretty quickly.

I think the statement actually was that he will play until the end of this next season when his contract is up, not this past season. That's been stated by multiple people including Schilling himself. He definitely will not be playing another after that though.

Here's a link (its old but proves the point):

I had heard that he had backtracked on those statements but I just wanted to make sure that's what you had heard as well. Thanks for the help.

What he said is after this season coming up, he is done.

Its not that he can't do it (obviously) but unlike RJ he cares about his family and is hurting not being there enough.
